Maybe your company has had a website for years, but you're hearing more and more about the need to have a "mobile-friendly" version of the site as well. But what benefits can you expect from having this alternative to your standard site layout?
- You can reach (practically) everyone. Americans have adopted the mobile phone as a way of life -- in fact. it's estimated that 86 percent of us carry one. If we want to look something up these days, we don't go find a computer or dig a laptop out of the car. We whip out the iPhone/Blackberry/whatever and search the Web.
- Google likes it. We expect to see Google Mobile become a more popular search platform than Google PC by the end of 2012. This means that Google will likely start giving the nod to companies that they know offer a mobile version of their website. You definitely want to be in that favored group so you can come up tops on Google Mobile search results.
- It's easier to use. Visitors who arrive at your website from a mobile phone don't want to have to squint, rotate, zoom or otherwise fiddle around just to make your site viewable and usable -- they'd rather just move on your competitor's site. A mobile website offers a simplified, easy-to-read interface that makes navigation a breeze. By the same token, fat-fingered visitors need access to the relatively large, simple buttons provided by the mobile website layout.
So how do you create a mobile version of your website? That's easy -- let us do it! Netedge Marketing can design and build a mobile website that looks great, is easy to navigate and can be manipulated with normal human fingers. Be where your customers are. Go mobile!
