Are Mobile friendly websites Necessary? – Also Yes.

If your business website isn’t mobile ready (your site renders well on all mobile devices) in the next year, you’ll be loosing clients and customers. Plan ahead, don’t just build a mobile version of your site, build a complete mobile friendly websites for every business. For example, people like using the mobile functionality like big buttons, swiping and don’t need roll overs / roll downs. Look into Fluid Design (like this website) or create a complete mobile experience, more like a Mobile App of your website.

The mobile market continues to expand with 87% of the world subscribed to a mobile device at the end of 2011. Alarmingly this statistic is higher than the number of people who own a toothbrush!

"Tablets Beat Out Smartphones for Web Pages Views After looking at 100 billion visits to 1,000+ websites worldwide, the Adobe Digital Index is reporting that tablets have taken over smartphones for the first time in global web traffic generation. While PC's are still the predominant medium for web surfers, with tablet sales beating out PC sales by more than half at the end of 2012, it is evident that mobile devices will very soon be THE place to go for web browsing. That said, it's virtually impossible for companies not to jump on the mobile bandwagon, no matter the company size or industry, and be visible anywhere."
Michael Said :
"Thanks for Sharing Alexandra; agreed great points."
Steven William Pitts Said :
"It is hard but true, I have tried loading sites that aren't mobile friendly and I wish never to return to them again. It's a bitter experience"
