Are Your Reaching Your Local Market?
Mobile Website Development
Having a mobile website is becoming increasingly important for business in virtually every industry. As more and more people begin to use their smart phones and mobile devices to find businesses, it has become more essential than ever to have your website converted into a mobile-friendly design.
Over half of mobile users who are searching for local information via their smart phones end up calling the business. If you do not already have a mobile-friendly website, you could be missing out.
What Makes A Mobile Website Different?
Although mobile website designs are typically modeled after the theme of your main website, certain alterations can significantly increase the chance of a person staying on your mobile website once found. A mobile design is essentially a scaled down version and more to the point. Since mobile devices are more often used by people en-route, it is important to items such as your contact information (company’s phone number, address, and hours of operation) extremely accessible. If a person is able to find this information without having to dig deep into the website, they are much more likely to call or stop by.
You must also consider the fact that not all programs work the same on mobile devices. For example, the “Flash” media player is commonly used on PC’s and laptops, although is not IPhone or IPad friendly. Converting your website to adhere to the mobile market can reduce unwanted errors that incompatibility can bring.
How Do I Know If I Need A Mobile Website For My Services?
Although virtually every industry can benefit from having a mobile addition to their website, some can see a larger advantage over others. One of the biggest factors to consider is what services you offer to your local area. If your company offers products to local customers (such as restaurants, local entertainment, etc), someone who is in your area and on-the-go can easily find your business via maps and is more likely to call or drop in. Taking advantage of mobile website design can be the difference that sets you apart.
