Quite simply, if your business is not utilizing a mobile presence then you could be missing out on a large chunk of your desired audience.

This can equate to more sales and more opportunities, a win-win for your business and you. Here’s a quick tip: Reduce the steps to be taken for mobile purchases. Get your site visitors straight to the buying cart in the most convenient way possible, minus the lengthy forms—just ask for the vital information (i.e. full names and shipping address).

  • Your business is “current”

    Having a mobile-optimized business website shows that your business is ‘current’ aware of the market place and on par with current consumer trends (in communication technology) that make life convenient for your clients/customers. It shows your potential customers that you are a highly professional organization because you have taken the time and the efforts to give your audience an ultimate ‘browsing-to-buying’ experience.

 

How Mobile Optimised Websites Work...

There are a number of noticeable differences between standard screen (PC viewable sites) and mobile optimized websites as outlined below…

 
  • Flexible Layouts

    A mobile optimized website transforms into a compact layout when viewed in smaller screens of various sizes (smartphones & tablet devices made by different manufactures).

  • Optimised Display

    A mobile optimized website retains and displays ONLY the necessary information on smaller screen devices—hence, they load faster than standard websites over a mobile internet network or WI-FI service.

  • Navigation

    Navigation through mobile devices is specifically designed to be simple and effective, allowing users to get to areas of interest fast and without confusion.

  • Device Detection

    Mobile optimized websites can intelligently detect media extensions (i.e. flash, java) that aren’t always compatible for smaller devices and avoids displaying these for a more user-friendly experience on the move.

 

Some Useful Tips When Building Your Mobile Business Website

Now that the business benefits of having a mobile optimized website are pretty clear, here are a few of the basic fundamental principles you should certainly consider when looking too provide your customers/site visitors an enriched user experience:

 
  • Employ a simple and professional-looking layout

    Avoid irrelevant and unimportant information, cut-down on categories and page links, order your links from most to least important, and avoid unnecessary forms and/or tables.

  • Lesser data, lesser loading time = more browsing (and buying) time

    You’ve definitely navigated websites and felt the frustration when pages you open take time to load. The downside is, if your site loads s-l-o-w-l-y, your prospective customer will probably move to another site/online store. Limit your data size.

  • Location Mapping feature(s)

    Let your clients find you via your mobile website through location-finding extensions/functions. This comes handy for both users and non-users of the GPS system. Customers get to find your physical store even if it is located within or in between larger competitors.

  • Contact Information

    Clearly display your contact information.

  • Invite offline customers to go online via QR codes

    QR coding, which originated in Japan, is a great way to maximize audience on your mobile optimized website. QR or quick response coding is the generation of an image that when taken a photo of, leads to a certain URL/website. They’re typically in print ads, but can also go in shirts or all the products you produce. Designed for mobile internet users, QR codes make mobile browsing and shopping experiences easier.
