If you’ve never been to London, you should make time to go. It’s a great town. Recently, I was fortunate enough to take my own trip across the pond to speak at the 2014 Technology for Marketing and Advertising conference held at the National Hall.

Well, we weren’t totally surprised. Mobile has emerged as a huge opportunity for businesses of all sizes, although less than 10% of small businesses own a mobile-friendly website. In fact, a recent Pew Study revealed that 55% of adults use their mobile phone to go online.
Website Magazine says DudaMobile is moving and shaking! We were recently ranked number three on their annual list of Top 50 Mobile Movers & Shakers.
In the article, the editor writes that mobile is all about “the power given to consumers and the experience that is created thanks to these devices.” Businesses should take note of this. The consumer power that they speak of is a huge opportunity for businesses; an opportunity that Duda challenges all local businesses to grab.
When mobile first edged its way into the minds of marketers everywhere, it was the big companies that could afford to take advantage of this newfound consumer power. A company could easily spend thousands of dollars building mobile sites and mobile apps. That’s why Duda’s co-founders set out to create a mobile solution for small- and medium-sized businesses as well.
Three years after being founded and now seeing the mobile space really boom, Duda’s mission remains the same: To make every website on the planet mobile-friendly. We’re on our way.
Thanks to Website Magazine for naming us in the list of Top 50 Mobile Movers & Shakers.
Last week, we reported on the leaders of the mobile movement. These are the small- and medium-sized businesses that saw the need to create mobile-friendly websites early on.
In this infographic that was originally published by Mashable, Duda introduced the Mobile Movement Leaderboard. The leaderboard shows that the restaurant and food industry is embracing the mobile web more than any other small business category.
Of all the SMBs that have built mobile-optimized websites, restaurants take the largest share at 28%, followed by professional services (16%), health and wellness (10%), travel and tourism (8%) and automobile and transportation (6%).
