  • ©2013 Noel-Levitz, LLC. 2013 E-Expectations Report: The Impact of Mobile Browsing on the Online Behavior of College-Bound High School Students.
  • Recommendations: Students checking e-mail on a smartphone are not going to read the same way they will on a full-size PC or laptop screen. Your e-mail messages need to adapt to this reality. • Economize your e-mail copy as much as possible so mobile users won’t have to scroll through long lines of text. • Create designs that, while attractive, maximize the screen space of smaller displays. • Move calls to action up so they display before the fold or on the first scroll of a mobile display, and repeat the request at the end. • Test all of your messages on a variety of mobile platforms before deploying.
