After working with so many clients on so many websites, it would be surprising if we hadn’t. • But we can still be surprised like when new clients tell us they’re not concerned about optimising their site for mobile platforms. • Usually this is because they think that just because smartphones and tablets have web browsers built in, their site is accessible and that’s all that’ required. • We try very hard to keep our faces blank when this sort of thing comes up, because it’s tragically wrong.

A muddled mess that people make a face at and back out of, going to the next site in the search results until they find one that loads crisply, neatly, and usefully on their device.

And it’s working! • Your site comes up in the first rank of search results, often in the top spot. All that hard work and money paying off. • Except, when they tap on the link, the website that comes up is chaotic, requiring a lot of scanning around with their finger on the screen, the text too small to read and the links difficult to hit.

We did website design for them, and it was a work of art, and they were very happy. • We tried to convince them that they needed a mobile-optimised site as well, but they disagreed ” no one made dentist appointments while running for the bus, they argued. • A few weeks later, we sent them some analytics that showed some very discouraging numbers ” people were finding their site via mobile searches, but weren’t clicking past the home page. No interaction at all. The culprit? Not having a mobile site.

Visit Us: http://awebsitedesigner.com.au/ Call On: 1300 760 363 • Our dentist’s office found that the main thing their patients wanted from a mobile site was the ability to make and change appointments, instead of having to call in every time, and a way to easily contact their dentist. • They wanted to be empowered and connected. After our analytics convince the three partners that they need a mobile website, we got to work, and created a clean, elegant mobile site that offered their patients easy access to information, appointment widgets, and easy contact forms. And business thrived. • The mobile site was also a lot faster to download on expensive data plans, which their patients really appreciated.
