You might consider building a mobile application for your business in the near future. Either for selling or so that users can access your website more easily. This would be of great help for maintaining your visitors loyal. Now think a bit, accessing a website from a phone implies unlocking your phone, accessing your browser, searching on Google for the keywords. Or accessing your bookmarks from withing the browser.

But wouldn’t it be lovely that once you unlock your phone, right in front of you on the screen there is a nice looking icon that once pressed will open the website you’re trying to access? There are few to none websites that I know about that offer this functionality. If you ever heard of Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income, he’s the only one that have’s an app for his podcasts and blog posts and I find his app very useful.
Really! Sharing this already made me feel like I should’ve kept that to myself. If it came to me it means that others are thinking about it also. Think and act! The next thing that may happen is to see that every website haves such an app to offer on the front page.

Mobile Internet Usage Surpasses Desktop for First Time Ever Worldwide
A press release issued this morning from StatCounter reveals mobile and tablet internet usage has exceeded desktop for the first time ever.
In October 2016, mobile and tablet devices accounted for 51.3% of internet usage compared to 48.7% by desktop. This marks the first time worldwide mobile internet usage has eclipsed desktop. There’s no telling if this trend will continue, but mobile web usage has historically grown during the holiday season.
Aodhan Cullen, CEO of StatCounter, echoes what SEOs and marketers have been saying for years now — mobile needs to be a priority for more businesses:
“This should be a wake up call especially for small businesses, sole traders and professionals to make sure that their websites are mobile friendly. Many older websites are not.”
Looking at various parts of the world on their own, statistics show more mature markets, such as US and UK, still use desktop computers as their primary mode of using the internet. Then there are markets like India, for example, where mobile devices account for 75% of all internet usage. Read more…
Looking at the statistics my proposal is more than just an idea. And let’s say that the phone users will never outclass desktop user and if they will, it will drop again just like it happened in October. This idea could still boost your website traffic by 25% (more or less). Would you say “No thanks” to that percentage? I don’t think so. Even 15% even 10% EVEN 5 % that’s still a lot depending on your traffic.
