WJR Business Beat with Jeff Sloan: Take Your Business Mobile (Episode 27)

On this morning’s WJR Business Beat, Jeff focuses on how entrepreneurs must continue to look forward and be innovative and productive even in these tough and challenging times. Today’s tip: go mobile!

During the first quarter of 2020, consumers downloaded apps 31 billion times and spent over $23.4 billion through the app store (the largest quarter ever recorded in history of consumer spend on and in apps). Now, categories like education, business, health and fitness are all up 20 percent to 40 percent over the same period last year.

If you’re a small business, use this time to optimize your website for mobile. Listen in for more tips on creating a mobile platform from Jeff:

“Use these tools to stay in touch with your customers right now during this most critical time to engage with them and keep them. You’ve worked hard to earn them, keep them, and go mobile to do it. That’s where the action is today.”

– Jeff Sloan
