I'll admit that I am NOT a "gamer." I have never been a video game guy (even though I was a teenager in the 1980's) and never even owned a Nintendo or PlayStation (gasp) and I honestly never understood the Pokémon craze when it was first introduced in the 1990's. Nope, not one bit.
So imagine my surprise to see this Pokémon Go craze that has taken over in less than a week. It hasn't been unleashed in most countries yet and has already may even garner more online attention and searches than SnapChat and all the Kardashians put together! It's brought people outside on walks for the first time in years and has even caused traffic accidents!
So what does this have to do with home medical equipment and HME websites you ask? Will there be a "CPAP Mask GO" or "Wheeled Walker GO" coming out soon? I doubt it, but we are working on it. What this really shows is how much our culture depends on our phones!
Though they were once just rotary-dialed utilitarian devices used for verbal communication, our phones are now an extension of our hands like an add-on body part. They are everywhere, at all times, for any and all reasons, and no reason whatsoever. We can't and don't want to EVER be without our phones!
Does your website go with people wherever and whenever they go? Are you and your website mobile-friendly and mobile responsive? If you had a new PowerWeb 4.0 from VGM Forbin it would be. While we may never see your website becoming the digital sweetheart of the millennials, there are a huge number of people looking for your website, your business and the products you offer.
These numbers will only continue to grow as the number of baby boomers, their aging parents, and their smartphones, grow. A mobile-responsive website is no longer just a nice thing to have, it's as essential as having an accessible front door at your business if not more. A mobile-responsive website means people can use their phones to contact you and order products in the car, at work, at a ballgame, or anywhere!
A new PowerWeb 4.0 from VGM Forbin can get you there. These HME-specific websites have user-friendly and search engine-friendly content, a huge HME catalog, online forms galore, social media icon links, clean, modern designs and so much more!
So while your new PowerWeb 4.0 website may never cause millions of people to walk around like screen-addicted zombies, it just may be the thing to connect your customers and potential customers with your home medical equipment store.
Call Forbin today at 877-814-7485 or contact us online and talk to your regional rep about what a new PowerWeb 4.0 HME website can do for you. In the meantime, we'll be working on creating a "CPAP Mask GO" or "Wheeled Walker GO" app.
