If someone was to come up to you and tell you that every person will own a cell phone, would you think they were crazy for asking that? What if that happened ten, maybe fifteen years ago, how would you have responded? Today, it is very hard to find a person without a phone or portable device of some kind that isn’t connected to the internet. We need to stream our content on the fly when were not at home, and our phones do this for us. Our phones are incredible little devices but have nowhere near the computing power of their larger cousins. When we want to pull up a webpage on our computer, it can take mere seconds to download thousands of bytes of information through text, pictures, videos and applications. Due to the limitation of the screen size on these smart phones, we came up with mobile versions of our favorite sites.
Popularity in mobile devices like Blackberries , iPhones and now Android powered smartphones are increasing daily more companies are now looking into their websites and services to be viewed on these devices without any hassle. Today’s advanced mobile phones come with fast processers, significant Internet capabilities and unique interfaces like large touch screens or a mini keyboard. These phones have become a favorite with those who want quick access to information at their fingertips while still on the move.
Mobile website designs are becoming increasingly more popular in recent times, companies and businesses around the world are increasingly tapping into gaining information on the move. This creates a large number of people trying to access the Internet via their mobile devices. Here at Integrated Webworks, we are now offering mobile website design as a forefront technology. Whether the mobile site is just a slimmed-down version of their site where only some links or articles are displayed or near recreations of the desktop version, Integrated Webworks is looking into bettering your experience.
Are there any benefits for my business that a mobile website can offer? Tons. What if it’s not for me you ask? Of course it is. Any business can benefit from the use of a mobile website. Banks can allow their clients to gain access their accounts and make changes. Restaurants can post their menus to help someone see what type a food they offer, they then link to something like Google or Bing maps that can give the person the location and directions to the restaurant. Not optimizing for mobile web access is ignoring a huge potential customer base; businesses are becoming increasingly aware to have mobile-friendly websites. Your business cannot ignore this change in technology either. Having an inferior mobile web-face, or lack of, can damage a business and cause any potential customers to move on to a business with a more accessible site.
