Mobile Web Design
The amount of Smartphone owners in the UK is growing at a staggering rate. With over 80% of adults and 60% of teens in the UK having mobile phones at least 60% of these have browsed the internet from their phones.
Just ask yourself one simple question – “Who do I know that doesn’t have a mobile phone???” – and that will probably indicate how widespread the useage is and why you should have a mobile web design.
Why is Mobile Web Design important?
The answer to this is simple, mobile devices have small screens. Your website may look great on a PC or Laptop but when you view it on a 3.5″ screen, it is a nightmare to read and difficult to navigate. Also the size of your website will not be loaded properly due to some mobile devices having limited memory. In return this means that you could be losing valuable clients and getting a bad reputation.
To get around this issue, all you need is a simple mobile web design targetted to mobile devices. An example can be seen here www.m.nutritionforsportandweightloss.co.uk – Check it out on your mobile phone and see the difference to their main site www.nutritionforsportandweightloss.co.uk
These devices have capabilities far beyond simply making phone calls and here at Scanit we can help businesses connect with exisiting and potential customers, using a Mobile Web Design together with QR Code technology.
If you don’t already know what a QR Code is, here’s a brief rundown.
Nearly all SmartPhones are equipped with a barcode scanner and those that don’t, can simply download an application in a matter of seconds. (The easiest way being, to visit the application providers website such as www.i-nigma.mobi from your mobile device.) There are many others but the list is too extensive to convey here but a quick Google search will provide plenty of results.
Think of them as a bridge between the printed and the virtual world. No need to type in fiddly web addresses, contact details etc. on small keypads, simply scan the code and get redirected to a mobile web design.
The uses are varied and many, and after reading this we are sure you will see how this technology could integrate into and benefit your business.
