The Value of Smartphones

Have you ever thought of reaching for a cellphone to wake you up in the morning, to take a picture or just to light a dark area? Today we all have smart phones that can handle not just these tasks but much more! Here are some of your smartphone capabilities:
  • Set up conference calls
  • Update social media
  • Send and receive emails
  • Schedule and set reminders
  • Provide customized software
  • Take photos
  • Play music
  • Store data
  • Perform calculations

Understanding your smartphone allows you to better utilize technology to enhance your business. Constant Contact has five great tips for using your phone to enhance your content and create new fresh ideas. Click here.

Not only is it important to know all your phone can do for you and your business, it is important to know what could happen when you use your phone in these ways.
