Tri-Cities, TN/VA First Mobile Ready Business Directory To Launch July 1st


Tri-Cities, TN/VA - June 20, 2011 – After almost a year in development Tricities eCommerce Business Solutions (TCeBS) is ready to unveil the first ever mobile ready business directory on July 1st. Rick Roberts, TCeBS owner, has been working behind the scenes with programmers since June of last year to bring the Tri-Cities, TN and Southwest VA the newest innovation in website technology to help local businesses capitalize on the emerging growth smartphone Internet users.

In a poll conducted last year by the Pew Internet and American Life Project it was shown that 38% of all US cell phone users access the Internet via their cell phones daily. Facebook recently reported that of their now 500 million users almost one-third of the posts to the social network are coming from mobile phones. “When you think about it there are three things everyone carries with them when they leave their homes now, their wallet or pocket book, keys to their car and their cell phone,” said Roberts; "you see it everywhere you go now - people constantly staying connected by either text messaging or smartphone web browsing.”

“It’s been our goal since day one of this project to offer local area businesses a mobile ready listing that a smartphone Internet user can at the click of a button dial the business directly and also to get exact driving directions to their place of business,” said a TCeBS staff member"Less than 1% of all websites online today are mobile ready, with this mobile ready business directory we are bridging that gap here in this area.”

Smartphones are readily available to everyone now that most of the major cell providers are offering them as incentives for service subscriptions and plan upgrades. According to a CNN Tech Christmas wishlist survey for 2010 smartphones came in at #3 with the Apple iPad being the number one request from last year’s Christmas wishlist.

“Tricities eBS has been providing marketing and promotion consultation since 2009 on ways for small businesses to promote themselves with non-traditional outside-the-box strategies,” said Rick Roberts. "We’ve recognized for over two years the growing trend of mobile phone and Internet usage here in our area, but the cost of marketing through this new medium up until now was just out of reach of most small businesses.”
