Mobile Websites Are a Must Have in 2012!

2012 is the start of the New Year and with it new ideas need to be put on the table for businesses that are online. one of these ideas are mobile websites and mobile apps and these are going to be a necessity over the next few years as more and more people take to smart phones and other mobile devices to go online for the products and services they need.

What is a mobile website?

A mobile website is in simple terms a duplication of your existing website. it will feature the same company logo, colours and branding however it will be simpler and will more than likely feature what is known as “fat finger technology” where the buttons are bigger for people as they access from a phone or mobile device.

You can have a whole mobile website created but a great stepping stone is to actually build a mobile website home page so that when someone comes to your site on a mobile device they are recognised by a mobile visitor and thus directed to your mobile welcome page.

It is on here where you can welcome them as a mobile user and maybe have big buttons for certain product categories or big buttons for services you provide. In addition you may provide contact information however, once they click into say a category they then view your site not as a mobile site. This is the cheapest way in which you can accommodate mobile users as a first step.

Taking it one step further you can actually make your whole site mobile so that products are shown bigger and with big buttons around them for say “request more information”. These are a lot more pricey as a lot of hard work has to go into these to ensure that every product page, product category, welcome page and other landing pages are made mobile so that they are completely user friendly to a mobile visitor to your site.
