  • Mobile Website

    The iPhone and the other smart phones are dominating the market currently. I am hooked on to my iPhone myself for checking news and the social networking websites. In my opinion establishing a mobile version of the website will surely help in terms of reaching out to a wider range of people. It is true that you can access the existing website from the smart phones as well, however when people search your website on the iPhone, iPad Blackberry or any other smart phone, they will be greeted by a mobile friendly version of the website that will be easy to navigate.

    In the tough and competitive world today, it is highly important to have a mobile friendly website that will make it easier for the people to browse. If you check the statistics of the incoming traffic to your website, you will come across the smart phone users as well. In my opinion, it is certainly beneficial to have a mobile website.

    Would like to know your thoughts as well.

    When browsing for products or services via handheld devices, People are not ready to wait for the page to load. According to a survey, people want a website to be loaded within 4 seconds on their mobile. They will simply move to other website which is accessed faster.

    according to me, a Mobile friendly website is Mandatory.

    It may not contain complete product information but should have important pages available. Mainly Highlighted or core products, Any promotions, contact us information / Contact us form and log-in option for existing customers.

    If your website can't be accessed easily via handhelds........Many potential customers don't know you exist.

      As the smart phones have become affordable, many people over the world prefer using them instead of a laptop or a notebook. In case you don’t have a mobile friendly website, you will surely get beaten up by the competition. While creating a mobile website, the most important point to be considered is the page load time of the website. This is because the sole reason why people prefer browsing the website on their handheld devices is because it is fast and easy. Making an impressive mobile friendly website is not just about getting a few more customers; in fact it has become a critical part of establishing a strong brand that nurtures customer relationship in the best possible way.

          Hello Kevin,

          If you are looking forward for creating a mobile website, you must consider these factors:
          • The website load time is an important aspect as people browsing a mobile website are not willing to wait for a long span of time for the website to load.
          • The navigation of the mobile website must be simple so that people can quickly find what they are looking for.
          • Getting a mobile website done is more beneficial than having a mobile application because a mobile website can be accessed through any mobile operating system.
          • For creating a mobile website, instead of opting for a sub domain like m.yoursite.com, you can opt for a .mobi domain that provides with a distinct mobile website address.
          • While setting up the mobile website, make sure that you are adding links to your prominent social networking accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.

            The content featured in the mobile website also should be taken into consideration. This is a critical aspect because you cannot display large chunks of content in a mobile website, the content must be precise and upto the point and should enable easy understanding.

              Agree with you here. It is important that the content on the mobile website is optimized so that the visitor can easily get the information that one is looking for and find the site useful.
