Four Questions to Ask Before Going Mobile
1. What are the goals of our mobile presence?
2. What are the unique needs of a mobile user?
3. What is the difference between Mobile Web Apps vs. Client-based Apps?
4. What devices do our customers use?
Build brand awareness and consumer relevance
Translate an eCommerce business to the mobile web
Drive consumers to brick-and-mortar retail sites
Develop and engage a broader customer base
What are the goals of our mobile presence?
Immediate Benefit: Provide value to users upon initial engagement
Convenience through click-to-call, request info, etc.
Store locator, product reviews and price comparison
Relevance: Hyper-target users with device, user and application profiles
Give the option to use current location when LBS is available
Provide unique flow for different devices (smartphone vs. feature phone)
Create landing pages with targeted promos
Store information if experience is interrupted or stopped
Ease of use: Design simple yet effective navigation with only relevant steps
Easy to recognize what is selectable (i.e. arrows, menu buttons, etc.)
Platform-specific navigation controls
What are the unique needs of a mobile user?
Determine what devices your target customers are using
Mobile devices – especially Blackberries – do not render consistently across
platforms and different versions of the device
Feature phones still make up majority of the market
Different device capabilities should be leveraged for improved user experience
Test on live devices, don’t rely solely on emulators
Use a robust mobile content management system to do the heavy lifting for you
