The Growthink poll can be highly useful to public relations and marketing companies, as well as freelancers and consultants in understanding what services to offer to small business owners when approaching them to offer social media, SMS, and other technology-driven services. By understanding the percentage of users who utilize smartphones, as well as which types of smartphones they use, service providers can better target and serve the needs of entrepreneurs.
According to Growthink’s president Dave Lavinsky, “The results of the poll were a bit surprising. Typically when I go to entrepreneur-focused conferences, I see the majority of attendees using iPhones. But maybe that’s because I use an iPhone, so they catch my eye more. And I’m surprised by the large number of flip phone users. I expect that to change in the very near future as smart phones and apps allow entrepreneurs to better manage their businesses on the go.”
Growthink has been helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses successfully since 1999. The company focuses on business trends that affect entrepreneurs and those who market to this ever-growing group of business owners.
