In a report by comScore, about 40 percent of Internet traffic is now on mobile devices. Visitors can easily become frustrated if your site is not mobile friendly. Fortunately, there are a few solutions.
Becuase every website is unique, we cannot recommend a generic solution for all. The best solution is to analyze your situation to see what works for your website. To help you out, read on for a few sample solutions...
If you are not ready to commit to fully supporting a mobile website, you should at least have a fast loading, easy to navigate, mobile landing page. To set this up, we create a mobile specific layout that allows on-the-go visitors to quickly access to such items as your telephone number, hours, maps and directions.
If you have a large following on an existing site, where viewers may not take kindly to any changes to the layout or navigation, a dedicated site can be a great option. Creating a dedicated mobile site can also give you some great options like making a unique app like experience for your viewers.
This may be the best way to future-proof your website. Today, Internet capable devices range from 3" phone displays to 27" widescreen monitors. With some careful planning one site can be designed to work well on both of these sizes and everything in between.
