Technology has advanced at such a rapid pace that it enables people to find products and the manner in which they choose companies to do business with. These days thousands of online gamblers are turning to the web to research anything that’s gambling related. Earlier this year Google announced that it was going to launch the mother of all updates on April 21: ”Mobilegeddon”. As we tap our online network of friends we start at Google or another search engine. We’re living in an age where the companies that attract our attention are not the ones with big budgets and glitzy TV advertisements.
We live in an age where we want more visitors to our websites, more leads for our sales teams-and more customers to fuel growth.
