Mobile Websites…What are they and Why do you need one?
Your customers are looking for you on their phone. . . what are you showing them?
You keep hearing about Mobile Websites and that you should have one, but what are they and why do you need one?
The mobile revolution isn’t just coming, it’s already here!
Having a website is crucial for a business and so is being accessible anywhere. With Handouts, businesses can now have a mobile website to make it easier for their customers to find them. Websites designed for the desktop are converted into a mobile friendly version. Your new mobile site built on our platform will sync to your existing website and automatically be compatible with all smartphones including the iPhone, Android and Windows Mobile.
What is the difference between a regular site and a mobile optimized site?
A regular website is usually designed for viewing on a desktop computer. When viewed on a smaller mobile device, the user experience can be frustrating as certain elements from the site might not appear or may not function optimally as shown in the photo below. Mobile-optimized sites solve this problem by creating a version of the website that is specifically designed to look great on all mobile phones. In addition, mobile websites may also include features that take advantage of the advanced capabilities of a mobile phone such as a click-to-call button that, when clicked, places a call.
What are the benefits of having a mobile optimized site?
The main benefit of a mobile optimized site is providing a great overall website experience to your mobile users. With over 70 million Americans and 58 million Europeans browsing websites from their phone every month, it has become a necessity to provide a quality mobile experience including quick access to information about your business. A mobile optimized site also helps convert mobile traffic into customers by using special mobile website features like Click-to-Call and Mobile Maps with Directions.

How do people find my mobile website?
When a user types in the URL of your regular website on their phone, they will automatically be redirected to your mobile site.
The bottom line is you need a mobile website so your customers can find you and navigate your site easily…if they can’t, they may go somewhere else!
