Mobile Friendly Websites

Do I really need another version of my website that is mobile friendly?

FACT – AS OF MARCH 2011, ONLINE SEARCHES FROM A MOBILE PHONE QUADRUPLED FROM THE PREVIOUS 12 MONTHS!

If you don't currently have a mobile version of your website, you need to think about doing so ASAP! As consumers, we are generally very impatient when it comes to getting service now! Instant gratification is how the new generations have been programmed from video games and DVD's to easy credit and finance which have fuelled our desire to have things right now for the last 20 plus years…Can't afford it right now, no problem, just charge it and pay for it later! That mentality has spilled over into almost every facet of our daily lives. If you can't find what you are looking for immediately online, there is always another site where you can find it and more and more people are wanting information when they are out and about now. You only need to read the headline to see and understand that!

Think about it it…what do you normally take with you when you leave the house these days! Keys, wallet and phone! The uptake on smart phones which include I-Phones, Blackberry, Android and the likes is phenominal.

Currently, 58% of Americans have a mobile phone with web connectivity and by the end of 2011, sales of smartphones will outperform PC's and Macs! The world is preferring to connect to the web via mobile phone and it's a trend that will continue to grow!

Making a website mobile friendly is a must. All you need to do is think of what information a customer might be after if they are searching for your business from a mobile phone? It's generally things like, the address or a google map or the phone number so they can call you to advise they are late for an appointment or would like to even make an appointment!
