|Why do you need a mobile website?
The use of mobile devices like smart phones and tablet computers is steadily growing. By 2014, it is projected that more users will access the internet from their phone than from a computer.
Many businesses might think their primary website is sufficient if it can be accessed by a mobile device. However, simply being accessible by mobile devices is not the same as being designed and optimized for mobile devices.
Typical websites don’t fit well on a small screen. Mobile websites are built specifically for those small screens to give the user easy access to the info they want, using the device’s best features like touch-to-call.
Just because you have a website, and it can be viewed on a mobile phone doesn’t mean that it is mobile-friendly. Mobile websites are designed specifically for the smaller screens and consumer habits of smart phone users. Having a mobile website that is properly designed can help you grow your business!
Mobile phone users are searching for local businesses and they have high expectations regarding how quickly a mobile site loads and how easy it is to navigate. They don’t want to have to zoom, scroll or read through pages of information. They don’t want to wait while your photos or videos load. They want to be able to easily see the navigation buttons, and they want key information presented to them in a concise manner.
You mobile website is not a shrunken version of your regular website. Think of it as a Cliff Notes or Reader’s Digest version of your website. It needs to be designed so that visitors can easily navigate and find the key information they are searching for.
A mobile site is optimized for the viewing area. By displaying the relevant information in a format that fits the screen correctly, you will engage the consumer longer, creating more opportunities for a sale. With the immense growth of smart phones in the marketplace, it is something you can’t ignore. We can help!Types of businesses that can benefit from a mobile site:
