11 Tips For All Mobile Websites

Number 1, Design.

Make sure you look at the screen sizes on offer and work based on these, so people can actually read and see what they want easily.

Number 2, photography.

Smaller screen sizes don’t make bad photography acceptable, and remember, it’s a digital device so you can link more pictures and get more of the message across just by using photography, much easier than reading on a mobile phone.

Number 3, traffic.

Don’t worry about it, there are plenty of ways to generate traffic but the most important thing is just get started and build once you see what works best; this includes the social networking side of it too.

Number 4, features.

It’s small screen but a big opportunity, so make use of these things as a smart phone or tablet has lots to offer in the hardware and software. Things like maps, things like being able to call, so use them. Speed, just remember, some of your audience are on a good Wi-Fi connection, others are on a bad mobile network.

Number 6, video.

Video is a fantastic tool and the reporting side of it can be really powerful too, so use it.

Number 7, deals.

Mobile is a great way of making offers to potential clients, again because of the power of a mobile device, you have what people term “So Lo Mo”, social, local and mobile, so in this case, with deals, has really really great benefits, so when you’re thinking about using coupons think about using them on a mobile device.

Number 8, availability.

People want it now, being set up to give people up to date stock information is a great feature for a mobile device.

Number 9, Sales.

Make it easy for people to buy or reserve an item on their mobile device, you will see the benefits and a lot of people want this even though companies and competitors of yours probably don’t have this in place.

Number 10, partners.

Work with people who know about marketing, not just programming, that way you get the right advice and a better return on your investment. And finally,

number 11, complexity.

Mobile isn’t complex or costly so don’t let anybody tell you otherwise. In fact simple solutions often work best on mobile devices.
