Mobile Websites

localsearch-475x365Google reported a 400% increase in the number of searches being carried out on mobile devices. This means that 1 in 5 Google searches is now being carried out on a Mobile Device or smart phone. And the news is even more alarming for a small business owner like yourself.

1 out of every 3 mobile searches is now local.

That is, someone searching for a business or a service provider like you, in their local area. In simple terms, IF you Don’thave a mobile optimized version of your website you are throwing away a large chunk of your business and things are only going to get worse.

In fact smart phone usage is expected to overtake desktop usage by as soon as 2013. That means the majority of visitors to your website will soon be on a Mobile Device. The new generation of mobile users are seldom just surfing the web. They are looking for specific information about your business, whether it be your opening hours, your location, phone number or services… and if they can’t find what they’re looking for, they will go elsewhere.   That means your competitors win, and you lose.

The problem with most standard websites is they are not designed for mobile phones making them hard to read and navigate for mobile users. They take too long to load, key information is not displayed prominently and users need to scroll back and forth and zoom in and out to read all the information.

Almost everyone is using a mobile device to access the internet, If you Look around and observe people a little, you will see that almost all of them are  browsing the web on a smartphone.

The fact is that 50% of the British population access the internet through mobile devices  each day and that number is on the rise! This means that if you don’t have a mobile version of your current website then your competition will take over your business and your customers because he or  she serves to their mobile website users and visitors.

Now let’s look at another website and see how they handle their mobile visitors.

 The difference is huge right?
This site has a mobile optimized version they serve up to their mobile users. All information is easily accessible right from the home screen. Customers can call you with just the click of a button. Important details such as directions and opening hours are all easily found. The whole site is designed to automatically re-size to fit all the most popular smart phone devices. So users don’t need to zoom in or scroll around. But one of the most important factors is the simple design that means the site jumps right up on the screen nice and quickly. This is very important for your customers on the move.

What are the big advantages and benefits of having a Mobile Website and what this means to your business?

There are a number of advantages worth considering when considering a mobile web site.

Improved Mobile User Experience by Easy Navigation
Mobile websites are specifically designed for handheld devices – nobody wants to browse a desktop website on their smartphone! Research on mobile website usability shows that mobile-optimized websites significantly improve user experience and satisfaction, which makes a positive impression when it counts.

Faster Download Speed when viewing from Mobile Device
Mobile websites are specifically designed for mobile standards and optimal download speed, which means less waiting and more browsing.

Engagement and Context
A mobile website allows you to immediately engage users with mobile-specific features such as Tap-to-call, Tap to text, email and Live mapping functions. Furthermore, if you’re a local business mobile is particularly significant as more and more visitors will find your site through location-aware technology that connects users to your website when they are in immediate geographic proximity.

Improved Search Engine Rankings / Performance
A mobile website improves search engine rankings on mobile-friendly search engines such as Google, and also allows placement in a growing number of mobile and local directories!

Brand Identity
A mobile website immediately helps you stand out and presents a positive, contemporary identity for your organization. A mobile-optimized website makes a positive statement and positive results immediately.

Portability and Connectivity
A mobile website is also optimized in most cases for iPad devices as well Android and Window based. This provides an opportunity to connect with specific audiences in a way that is optimized for the user viewing the site at the time.

Competitive Advantage
A well designed mobile website puts you in a better position than your competitors. If your website doesn’t look good on a smartphone users will move on to another website that is optimized for a mobile device. A mobile website ensures that you capture your visitors attention while you have it.

Linking from QR Codes
Mobile devices are unique in their ability to take advantage of new marketing techniques such as QR codes. QR codes are displayed in print and when scanned with a smartphone it automatically launches a specific website URL or SMS message. This means that your advertisements, brochures, or posters can contain QR codes that will direct users to a specific mobile landing page that has much more information and interactivity than can be printed on the page or ad.

More Flexible and Cost-Effective Than App Development
There are some applications that are better-suited to an app format, and often it makes sense to have both an app and a mobile website. But for a well-rounded mobile presence a mobile-optimized website is generally a practical and effective first step.  A mobile website is always available on all smartphones an app requires users to download the app before it can be accessed.

Don’t let your competitors pass you by.

  • I have just set up a new business for the area offering mobile aromatherapy. Some months back, I registered a domain name and then found a hosting site thinking that it would be quite simple either to find someone to help me put together a very basic website or that I could even do it myself. That turned out to be completely wrong and I realised quite late in the day that it was all far more complex than I had imagined. Thank goodness, John S. at Bay Business Centre took me in to talk to Erol and Ian who happen to work in the same building. I didn’t understand about the need to have a website that is compatible with smart phones as well as PCs and tablets. They offered me a package at a very reasonable rate and my website is now up and running and looks very professional. Erol put a lot of time and effort into getting it just right for me and I would be very happy to recommend this company to any other small business like mine that’s just setting up.
    Ros Cadoux (BA SNHS), Mobile Aromatherapy Lancaster
  • I had an old website which definitely needed a revamp, I wanted a website which would keep my customers interested in what I do, show the quality of my work as well as making it easy for them reach me, Ian & Erol explained a new technology in webdesign and development and how the new design ideas would benefit my business. The end result is amazing! it’s as if “it does exactly what it says on the tin!”, they delivered more than what they promised they would and I am just so happy with the way it looks and function. Thank you again for all your efforts, I love it and so does my customers.
    Andrew Constantine, Mountainstone Forge | Morecambe
  • We had an old website which wasn’t expressing our company values and the right information about the services we were offering to our patients, we were also paying too much for the yearly maintenance costs, Websites Mobilized solves our issues and challenges with our web presence in a professional manner with a very cost effective price , we just can’t thank them enough!

    Lynn Ison, Manager | Market Gate Shopping Centre Lancaster
  • Being New to business and not knowing much about professional websites, We was unsure about costing as we had seen websites for £5000 on-line, and didn't have that much money for a website, we  started using a company called weebly.com as a free website, Ian and Erol soon showed us this was unprofessional and it was hard for customers to find us, Erol built us a brand new website that looked and worked amazing and very professional and amazing Price , also we didn't have a logo so Erol spent time creating an amazing logo, this has help in branding our business, we could not achieved this with out websites mobilized and we just want to say thank you for all your hard work and dedication that you have given to our business and with growing on-line Ian and Erol will be the first we would contact for information and advice.
    Matthew Hill, Reptiles Haven
  • Ian was very friendly with his approach about building a website for us, he wasn't there to sell us anything but to help us see what can be  done and how they can help us with a new technolgy website that would look and act as it should for a restaurant, we did need a revamp but  could not get the right people to really talk about expressing our views as to how our website should look and act like, most restaurant  websites have their menu as a pdf file on their site, we wanted it as a visually appealing page, they listened to us as if nobody in the world  existed, and the results were outstanding, not only we had our menu pages absolutely spot on, we had every page, every graphic designed as we  visualized it!, Absolutely brilliant.
