Everyone needs to think about the future of mobile and tablet browsing. Let&#x2019;s take a look at how your company could benefit from being accessible to brides on the go.\n
Women are busy and a bride is even busier. Modernize the way your potential clients can book their events by offering your service via mobile phones and tablets.\n
Allow brides to choose their menus, arrangements, and dates on their tables & phones. Being accessible is beneficial for everyone as tablet and mobile internet use becomes more popular.\n
With the growth of mobile device and tablet use business&#x2019;s now need to incorporate ways to make there websites available on these devices. The statistics show that the use of these devices is only to grow, so being able to provide a useful site presentation is necessary. \n
Let&#x2019;s look at the steps that need to be made to get your mobile and tablet freindly site up and running. First you need HTML that is used in mobile & tablet devices. The iPad and the iPhone do not support Adobe Flash. So how can you make video content available to these users? HTML5! You will also need to think about your consumers and what they are going to be accessing your site on a phone or tablet. Then take this and make the design simple and effective, so that it is convenient for them. There are so many devices available, so you need to make for sure you cover the basics when it comes to compatibility. \n
Designing your site in HTML 5 will allow those consumers who have Apple products to view your media. It also offers the option of background notifications. So, if your bride books her reception and you want to confirm it you can send her a notification letting her know that it has been confirmed. HTML 5 also offers GEO location, which can allow the consumer to look at event locations that are closet to their current location. Reach more devices with HTML 5 and as time progresses more and more browsers are going to be supporting the new markup language.\n
Create an effective mobile design by determining what it is that your consumers are looking for on your mobile site. Offer these options in a clean and simple format. Limit the amount of options to the most popular so that you are not over populating the site. Do the same when creating the Table site, but also add a bit on interactivity to it.\n
When investing time and money into your mobile and tablet site, make for certain your are covering all of the different types.\n
David&#x2019;s Bridal offers a great mobile site that gives the main navigations bar a slim look that allows for quick and easy browsing. This photography site offers an interactive layout of a picture book through your tablet. \n
This is an example of a site that is not using HTML5 or any editing for a mobile device. The text is illegible, the images are too small to determine what they are, and there is an overload of hyperlinks.\n
Let&#x2019;s take a look at your site on a mobile device. It&#x2019;s difficult to read and the navigation bar is illegible. The overall design is distorted and the images dominate the screen. What can we do to improve this?\n
Use the above suggestions to begin a basic view of what you can do to make your mobile site user friendly to brides. The future is set with tablet and mobile devices as a major source of online browsing. Now is the time to update your sites so that they can better suit your cliental.\n
