If you, like us, believe the mobile website revolution is well and truly under way, then you have landed on the right page.
Utilising mobile interface design is the most important change you can make to your online strategy.
At Crunch design, we design mobile websites that will enhance your vistors user experience.
If you have a website, then you have a site that can be accessed by any mobile device with a browser, such as a smart phone or iPad, however, chances are that site looks terrible and unfriendly on a mobile device.
If you’re worried about this, you’re not alone. Just as companies realised, around 1996 that they needed to create a website to remain relevant to their audience, the same realisation regarding mobile websites is dawning on companies right now. By 2013, more people will use mobile phones than PCs to get online. In mid-2011, we also reached the point at which consumers were spending more time on their mobile devices than on their PCs.
Did you know that traffic to mobile websites in 2010 grew 600% after tripling between 2009 and 2010?
Did you know that smartphones were predicted to out-ship the combined global market of laptop, desktop, and notebook computers in 2012?
And did you know that they actually already did so in the last quarter of 2010?
Mobile phones are predicted to overtake PCs as the most common web access devices worldwide by 2013 but based on statistics to date, this will also happen much earlier than predicted.
You don’t need all these statistics to realise that smartphone use is exploding. You just need to look around you and see how often people are staring at the little screen in their hand. Mobile is already all around us.
Mobile isn’t growing just because devices are getting better: they’re getting cheaper as well. People who could never afford a desktop or laptop computer can now get online using inexpensive mobile devices and increasingly affordable data plans.
Broader coverage from faster networks has also been adding fuel to the fire. In 2010 alone, mobile network speeds doubled.
As networks became twice as fast, the average amount of data traffic used per smartphone doubled as well. And this use of this data isn’t going to stop anytime soon; global mobile data traffic is projected to increase 26-fold between 2010 and 2015.
That’s a whole lot of opportunity coming your way, really fast.
Smartphones have a disproportionate amount of web and data usage. Smartphones represent only 13% of total global handsets in use today, but they make up 78% of total handset traffic.
Fueled by capable devices and faster networks, mobile internet usage is exploding. Having a mobile website positions you to take advantage of this growth, it also opens up new opportunities for engaging your customers.
What are Mobile Websites?
A mobile website is a scaled-down version of your desktop website, specially designed for smartphones and equipped with features that can be accessed on the go.
With millions of people now connected to the Internet via their smartphones, having a mobile site can really lift your brand, helping you stay connected with customers and clients at all times.
A mobile website can look and feel the same as your regular site but with mobile friendly navigation and functionality.
When your website is accessed from any smartphone, it will automatically redirect it to your mobile website.
Having a mobile website is not just an option - it's a necessity!
