The power to interact with your target audience where they are while they're doing an activity that reveals their needs and wants is Small Business marketing nirvana.
Today, mobile phones and tablets are fast becoming the place where your customers are sharing what they're doing and what they want or need via Social Media. This is not limited to just their peers, but also between your businesses and your customers. If you can excel at engaging your audience via mobile location-based services and the data that comes with their use (while providing value and without overstepping boundaries), you will reign over your market and competition for several years to come!
