70% of Businesses Don’t Have a Mobile Website, Even Though 50% of Internet Access will be from Mobile by Next Year

When I wrote Go Mobile (affiliate link) with Jeanne Hopkins from HubSpot, one of the statistics we referenced was this one from Gartner — by 2013, more than half of all internet visits will take place via mobile device.

It’s an amazing statistic. But despite that incredible prediction, more than 70% of all businesses in the U.S. don’t currently have a mobile website. Part of the problem is that many small- to mid-sized businesses don’t know where to start. They’re stuck in neutral because nobody has told them what they should do first.
