Instead of trying to draw customers in and bridge the engagement app between your business and your customers via social media, consider getting a mobile application. Email lists are unreliable. Text and SMS messages or advertising services tend to be ignored as spam. In this age of phones in every pocket, the mobile device is the next big thing. It has outstripped the computer as the most used device in the home. Consumers these days can do anything on their cell phones —
