Consumers Want You to Share Content Online

Nine out of 10 consumers take their business to enterprises with similar values
Three quarters of consumers have faith in objectively written content
Seven out of 10 consumers want to know a brand through serious content, not fluffy ads
About 58 percent of consumers say they trust editorial content
Consumers Want You to Go Mobile
Sounds a cliché? Well, it is. Zorbis always recommends its enterprise clients to focus on mobile because today that is where the big money is. In fact, a shade less than eight in 10 people have discovered at least one new business through their smartphone. Here are more eyeopener statistics on mobile and your business:
39% of consumers will look around for a new business if they cannot find you on their mobile
More than seven out of 10 consumers will say “Sayonara” if your mobile website is slow to load
