A big thanks are in order to Kate Tuomey of Franchise Direct UK who has supplied us with one of the handier infographics we've ever seen on the link between small businesses and mobile technology.
If you want to get a sense of the small business world's growing reliance on mobile, we urge you to consult with this chart now featured on Mashable. Not only is it a brilliantly-animated graph, there's tons of handy information for entrepreneurs.
For instance, I had no idea that Miami was America's leader for small businesses who adapt to mobile (or that Oklahoma City was sixth). Nor did I know that 2/3 of American small businesses say they wouldn't survive without mobile technology.
Looking for some more interesting stats? Well, 65% of small businesses agree that wireless technology gives them a competitive advantage, while 72% of small businesses use mobile apps in their business.
This is only the tip of the iceberg as far as this infographic is concerned. I've never seen so much useful information about small business and their mobile dependency in one place before.
After reading this chart, one thing is clear: if a small business doesn't have a mobile strategy, it needs to get one fast.
