Creating a Mobile Friendly Website? Is Your Website Not Mobile Friendly? Capitalize on the growing number of mobile searches by creating user friendly mobile landing pages for your website!
Here are the facts. Mobile advertising is exploding and is going to hit $3 billion by 2012. A Comscore study revealed that 25% of mobile phone users participate in at least one (and up to 10) SMS (text) marketing program monthly. With Advertising Spending increasing, it gives analysts a good indicator of where an industry is headed. Given this rising estimate, it is quite clear that the Mobile segment is going to be highly significant.
Having a website alone will not cut it on mobile, you should have a completely separate website for mobile users. The major differences are:
Available to all: Your mobile website should be easily download-able and run on any phone with a browser. This simply means that you have removed any apps that needs to be downloaded to a cell phone that will ruin any users experience.
Easier to Browse: A mobile website should be relatively easy to browse for the user. Tabs should be easier to see and “tap”. This will also allow you to focus your visitors on exactly what is relative and important to the user.
Tap for a Map: When people are searching from their mobile devices, they are typically looking for a specific product, contact info and/or directions to your location. With a Mobile Website you can easily add a “tap” for contact info or “tap” from a map using Google maps.
Though there are several apps available to turn your website mobile friendly and certainly their will be more to come, but here are few tips and steps you can take today so you can begin to make the conversion.
