More and more, people are visiting websites with their mobile phones. With so many things to do and places to go on your phone, it’s important to have a good first impression for people that find your website.
How long do you think people will spend looking at your website if it doesn’t come through very well?
You’ve probably done this yourself. I know I have. I’m usually in a hurry and will look something up on my phone. With so many competing pages and resources, I’ll tend to visit the ones that are easiest to get to, navigate, and read.
If I need to zoom in and scroll around on a site to find the information I’m looking for, it takes longer. Most websites are not optimized for mobile devices, and come through poorly or not at all.
How many visitors to your website are clicking away to something else because they are having trouble navigating your site? Chances are, a lot of them are. Make it easy for visitors to get around, and find what they’re looking for.
One of the most important features of a well-optimized mobile website is a “Tap to Call” or “Click to Call” link on the top for your phone number. Visitors may simply be looking for a phone number to call you. Make this link the easiest to find and use for them, and get more calls as a result. Avoid those “clickaways” when people can’t quickly find what they’re looking for!
Contact me for a sample of what your website might look like when optimized for mobile.
Have you ever been to a party and pulled up someone’s website on your phone? Or maybe it’s the other way around. You told someone what your website was and they found it on your phone.
As they say, you only get one chance to make a good first impression. So, how did that website look? Was it something you’d like to come back to more than once? Chances are, it was not optimized for mobile.
Mobile websites are still new to many people, but are necessary to have as more and more people are using their phones to look for information online. Since you don’t have the convenience of a full keyboard and mouse to navigate with on a phone, it needs to be easy to get around and find what you’re looking for.
It used to be that being “all thumbs” was considered a disadvantage, but those thumbs are doing most of the work now navigating around on a mobile phone. Sure, you can zoom in on a site and scroll around to see the content on the screen, but a site that fits the width of the screen is much easier to see, and find the information you’re after.
Go ahead, pull up your website on a phone and see what it looks like. Then send me your website address and I’ll send you back a comparison of how it looks now, and how it would look when optimized for mobile. Then you can see for yourself what a difference it makes for you, as well as those that are searching for you online.
Remember, you only get one chance to make a good first impression.
With so many mobile devices on the market, especially phones, it’s important to have an online presence that comes through correctly for those mobile users. More and more searches are done on smart phones, as these are steadily replacing desktop computers. Your fully functioning website looks and performs well from a desktop computer, but how does it look on a mobile phone?
Many websites will come in too small for the screen. The user will usually have to zoom in just to see what’s there, then scroll around the page to find something. That could even be something as simple as a phone number to call. And if it’s too much trouble, or takes too long, they’ll leave.
You know what it’s like if you’ve navigated around on a website with a mobile phone!
I can help you with a simple mobile website to take care of this. Your main website can stay the way it is, but your new mobile version will come up for those that are finding you from their phones. And the phone number will be located at the top of the page for quick reference. The content will load quickly with some basic information about your business. And if the person viewing your mobile site really wants to see more information, there will be a link to your full website for them.
The turnaround for this is pretty quick, so once I get the details from you I can get started and get it back to you.
