Six Reasons To Mobilize Your Business
You’re Missing Customers Without a Mobile Website
1. There is a Revolution taking place and all one has to do is look around to see it. Just observe how many people are talking on smart phones such as the i-Phone and Android. It was reported that for December 24th and 25th, 2011 there were 6.8 million activations of i-Phones and Androids. It is said that there are 5.2 billion mobile phones out there.
This means there is a giant shift taking place in regards to how people access the Internet. The desktop computer is losing share to these mobile devices, the smart phone and tablets.
If you do not have a website or you have a desktop version only you are losing potential customers because of what I will talk about next.
2. I find it to be annoying to surf on your phone to a website and have that website be the desktop version. When it loads (slowly) it comes up in tiny mode. You know what I mean.
Sure, you can enlarge it but you will then have to scroll forever to get to the information that you seek.
Most people are so used to immediate information that they are not going to have the patience to stay at that site.
You can see an example below of what a desktop website looks like on a phone versus a mobile version of that site.
I am not knocking the desktop version by any means because I created it and the mobile version. Businesses need to adapt to the format that people are using to surf and search or those same people will not stay at their website.
Some say that it is better to have an app created for your business. While apps are great, but they do have some limitations. You will need to have an app built for all of the platforms that you want to connect. Apps have to be installed and with so many apps how are people going to find yours. Every phone automatically comes with a browser which the stats show is used more than apps by most smart phone users. Your mobile website is just a tap away for your potential customers.
