Mobile Websites -
Well you’d have to have been living in a fairly deep whole for a very long time to have missed the mobile revolution. With 3G and 4G availability increasing all the time and smartphone and tablet sales on an ever upward trajectory it is important that your website is compatible with most modern smartphones.
But it is, surely?
All smartphones will display your current websites, but of course it’ll look mighty small and be very difficult to navigate around given it was probably designed for a high resolution monitor. Even on Ipads and their ilk users are increasingly more comfortable with simpler, quicker type “apps” which given them a condensed version of the traditional website. See the example on the left of this page!
So we’re dumbing down for the 21st Century?
Pretty much. Having spent so long coming up with funky detailed “functionally rich”
websites with lots of jazzy graphics and the like, the current generation of mobile
sites are simpler cut down versions with easy to navigate screens with little text.
This is purely a function of screen size and bandwidth -
How do i know if people are looking at my site from a mobile?
Those helpful people from Google make it crystal clear now through Google Analytics how many visitors you receive from mobiles, including from which devices, operating systems etc. Without a mobile site in place you will probably notice the “bounce rate” is higher and “number of pages/visit” lower than for normal visitors as the “user experience” is so poor.
Sounds great -
Depends on the number of pages you want and degree of sophistication. Most of the work involved is in resizing graphics and crafting text and navigation so it all hangs together. Certainly for £750 you should see the site happily up and running.
How long will it take?
Depending on our current workload we should have something up and running within a week.
So what to do next?
