Smartphones, like the iPhone, Droid or Blackberry are everywhere and becoming more and more popular. Is your website ready for them? Remember the days when the only business use for your cell phone was using it as a storage spot for contacts? Those days are gone. Cell phones are not just "personal" anymore and the number of consumers using their phones for more than just business is rapidly growing. Because we're using smartphones to access the internet for product searches and purchasing as well as social networking, it's important to make sure that your site displays properly on today's mobile devices.
Traffic statistics from our clients' sites have been very enlightening so far. Many SMT clients are experiencing anywhere from 3 - 7% of their site's visitors utilizing a mobile phone to access their web sites. Today's mobile web users want the ability to easily and quickly search for products, services, news or events without having to wait long.
The vast majority of websites contain way too much content, information and functionality to see and use on a 7cm x 4cm (or smaller) screen. But fear not! We are here to help! There are ways around this issue to ensure that mobile users can access your site with ease.
today to evaluate whether your site needs a mobile version and to be sure your website is "Smartphone Ready".
So you may be asking "what does that have to do with me?"
Well as social networking gets more and more popular, and as microblogging (Twitter) evolves, it is becoming more about sharing professional content rather than creating personal content. The number of people who said they linked to news stories and the number that posted updates about a particular product on their microblogs both increased by more than 10% this year, but people who posted updates about personal photos decreased 5%.
If social media continues to become focused on real-time conversations around professional content, it could become a more powerful distribution channel than print, television, radio or static web pages ever were. This again means great potential for your business. That is, if you are utilizing it. If you are not using social media, you should be.
