New York Times New York Times before Mobile Site after Mobile Site
Does your Business Need a Mobile Website?
Most websites are designed to be viewed on a desktop computer. On a mobile phone, that website is hard to see much less work with. For one thing, since most mobile phones have slower connections to the internet, your full website will take LONGER TO LOAD than a mobile site will.
Check your Google Analytics for a Surprise.
We provide monthly marketing services to our customers which includes a study of the traffic to our customer websites. In a recent review of our customer websites, we discovered that 40-50% of the visitors to our customers websites was from mobile devices. This is astonishing. This means that if you’re not looking at your website from a smartphone, you are NOT seeing what others are seeing, which may very well surprise you. This fact alone becomes the most compelling reason why you need to get a mobile version of your website immediately.
Mobile websites are smaller and load faster.
If you develop a mobile version of your website it will load MUCH faster on the phone and you’ll be able to condense the important content of each page down to the most important essentials. The home page for instance needs to have your phone number and directions to your business, the two most important and sought after pieces of information about your business.
If you don’t have a mobile version of your website, your visitors will probably click off your site and go to your competitors. A recent survey (http://www.gomez.com/resources/whitepapers/survey-report-what-users-want-from-mobile/) indicated that:
“a survey of 4,014 global mobile web users found that consumers have high expectations for mobile website and application performance. Ultimately, 71% stated they expect websites to load as quickly, almost as quickly or faster on their mobile phone compared to the computer they use at home – up from 58% in 2009”
Surprisingly, most businesses haven’t optimized their sites for mobile. They don’t even know about it. If you’re among the other 79% or so, take heart. Optimizing your site for mobile or creating a mobile site from scratch isn’t a big deal.
Mobile Websites Get Right to the Point – Of Your Business!
With Mobile websites you can go straight to the “CALL FOR ACTION” on the mobile screen. Usually this is a signup or contact phone OR a phone call OR directions to your place of business. Make sure when you develop your mobile website that you get these three things optimized for each mobile page.
You will be able to monetize your website traffic with mobile phones easier. Smartphone owners tend to be younger and more accepting of new technologies. You may offer specialized products and services to your mobile website visitors.
Mobile Website Help your SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
Developing a mobile site has additional value in adding more unique and specialized content to your website making it more relevant in the search engines and giving your website a higher ranking in the search engines. Don’t forget that any videos you have on your website should also be linked to your mobile pages which will increase your SEO ranking as well. Adding links back to your FULL Website are important for those who want to dig further into your products and services. Many servers will first dish out your mobile site to tablet and IPAD users who are fully capable of viewing the full content of your regular website so don’t forget to add a link to the full version of each page from each mobile page. This again adds ranking value to your website making it show up higher in the search engines.
