But, more importantly, there are a couple of lessons I'd like to share with you, as well as a picture of what I look like in real life (you may rest easy now, as I'm sure that mystery has been consuming your life. )
First, here's the column: Businesses need a mobile website to compete
There are two lessons IMers can get from this:
1) Mobile websites aren't just for small businesses. We could benefit from them too. Take a look at your traffic logs and see what percentage of your users are trying to access your website from a mobile device. That's how many potential customers you're losing out on.
2) Newspapers rock for syndication. My column was automatically tweeted by a user with over 14,600 followers. Given my newspaper's credibility (I think they've been around since 1888), and relationships with other media outlets, the possibilities to get that article syndicated are endless.
I'm pretty excited about this opportunity, and I really hope I end up helping a lot of businesses increase their bottom-line. That's what this is all about for me. I love helping people, and if my advice helps just a few business increase profits (so they can hire more employees), then it'll be worth it.
Just thought I'd share that with you guys. Would love to hear your feedback, and I hope this has been helpful to you.
