After a morning of sales visits, Leif found himself in his old Queens neighborhood at lunch time. When a search for his favorite local spot only returned results for a Manhattan location, he immediately called the business to find out why. He learned the Queens location no longer existed.

By 2018, calls to US businesses driven by mobile search expected to grow to 73B.
57% of smartphone users would call a business after searching for information on their phone because they want to talk to a real person.
