)-- BusinessOpportunity.com today announced it is launching a mobile version of its website, making it easier than ever before for business opportunity, distributorship, licensee opportunity and small franchise opportunity shoppers to access all that the site has to offer anytime, anyplace and from anywhere. Now users will be able to search for opportunities, submit requests, keep up with the latest small business ownership-related news and information on the site’s blog and even contact the site directly, all in a more navigable format that can be downloaded quickly to any mobile device.
According to the latest research*, an estimated 1.2 billion people are now accessing the web using a mobile device, while 25% of all internet users gain access via mobile only. And those numbers are only headed one place…up! In fact, mobile searches have quadrupled in the last year alone, with as many as one out of every seven searches for many items being sent from a mobile phone or other device.
“At BusinessOpportunity.com, we want to be on the leading edge of this trend. As it stands today, approximately twenty percent of our visiting users come to BusinessOpportunity.com from a mobile device of some kind, with the most popular being iOS and Android systems,” said Todd Hatch, BusinessOpportunity.com’s Chief Operating Officer. “Now that our site has been enhanced to more readily accommodate any mobile platform, we anticipate tremendous growth in this area over the next few years.”
Visitors to BusinessOpportunity.com who are interested in optimizing the mobile version of the site will encounter an option on the main page to download it, enabling them to create an icon on their device’s home screen. This shortcut will give frequent users instant access to the site without having to download an entire app that takes up valuable data space.
Since its start in 2003, BusinessOpportunity.com has remained a leader in the business and franchise opportunities industry. It consistently ranks on page one, if not first, for a number of the most industry-relevant keywords and keyword combinations on the world’s primary search engines, including Google.
