You can’t argue withnumbers.Basically, more people today use their mobiledevices to access the Internet than they dotheir desktop or laptop computers.As a matter of fact, many people accessingthe web today ONLY do so through theirmobile devices.Can you afford not to cater to thisconsiderably large market sector?5  Reasons  Your  Business  Needs  a  Mobile  Site

Many mobile usersmust pay data transfer fees.Traditional websites have much more datathan mobile websites, and therefore cancost a lot of people a lot of money to view.How often are customers willing to pay youto market to them? Enough said.Navigation.As previously mentioned, traditional sitesare much smaller on those tiny mobiledevice screens.That means site visitors must do an awfullot of scrolling to take the whole site in . . .and let’s face it, web surfers don’t want tohave to work to read a web page.Also, it can be nearly impossible to hitnavigation buttons on such a tiny screenwhen the website hasn’t been optimized formobile devices.Today’s web audience.The fact that most people access theInternet via mobile device also means thatmost people use their mobile devices forany of a wide variety of things:Shopping, researching, searching,entertainment, and more.These are all aspects you could add to yourmobile website to increase your reach andbroaden your customer base.As you can see, there are a number of verygood reasons to build a mobile website foryour business, and as soon as possible.5  Reasons  Con?nued.  Mobile  Landing  Pages  @  CMJH  Produc?ons  Inc.  Pg.  4

That’s great.You are truly ahead ofthe game when itcomes to the world ofInternet marketing.Now you need to knowhow to build the mosteffective mobilewebsite possible . . .and, no, it is notnearly the same asbuilding a traditionalsite.A mobile website is a new brand of site,and it involves a unique set ofconsiderations.Here are five essential elements foryour mobile website:Content. If you are at all experienced inweb design, then you’ve most likely heardthe phrase, “content is king.”Mobile web design relegates content to anew level, underneath navigability.Sure, it is still important that your contentis accurate, relevant, informative, and easyto understand.However, the most important thing is thatyour content is short, concise, and free ofany unnecessary verbiage.A good rule of thumb is that it should all fiton one page (and on a tiny mobile devicescreen, at that).Graphics and navigation buttons.Keep the touch screen in mind whendesigning a mobile website.Any good mobile site should have thumb-friendly navigation buttons.Additionally, other graphics should be keptto a minimum.Single column layout.You don’t want your site visitors to have towork to view your page.It should not be necessary to zoom or scrollto fit your site’s content on the screen.The most effective way to display yourmobile website is in a single column, whichwill be compatible with most smart phonescreens.5  Essen?al  Elements  for  Your  Mobile  Site  Building  &  Op?mizing  Mobile  Websites      Pg.  5  Put  Your    Add    Here    
  5. 5. Use the mobile device’s inbuilt functionality.This refers to all of those things a mobile device can do that a desktop or laptop can’t do –phone calls and GPS, for example.To aid the user experience, provide a way to access these features so that your site visitorscan call or locate your business with just the touch of a button.Navigation layout.In addition to having simple, large-scale navigation buttons and search boxes,you should also arrange your site’s navigation tools in a way that integrates well into thecolumn format.You may opt to stack them, put them in a drop-down menu at the top or bottom of thepage, or present them as the home page.As you can see, mobile web design is a whole new ballgame.It is important to keep all of these factors in mind if you are to build an effective mobilewebsite.Essen?al  Elements  of  a  Mobile  Site  Cont.    Free  Demo  Mobile  Site  for  Your  Business  Pg.  6
