Is Your Website Mobile Smartphone Compatible?

Almost everyone these days has a mobile phone with them all the time. We look at it continually and are on hand virtually 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We want to use our mobile phones these days for so much more than to simply ‘stay in touch’ and with new phones coming onto the market almost daily, the capabilities of these mini computers is staggering.

So it would be obvious then that websites need to be completely compatible with being viewed on a mobile telephone otherwise the business will lose customers.

If visitors to a website from their mobile phone struggle to navigate their way around, find pages difficult to view and cant find contact details easily, they will simply give up and move onto another website where they can and this may just be your competitor.

In general and until recently, mobile phones were designed to be viewed on laptops or desk top computers with large screens and much more capability to navigate around but the introduction of smartphones has meant that not only do businesses need the tradition website but they MUST make their website mobile smartphone compatible.

Square Pear Design and Marketing in Bolton have an easy solution to this,  they take your original website and ensure that it is easily accessible from a smart phone but more simply than that, they can create a ‘landing page’ for your website that is mobile compatible so that any visitors will land on that page and get an overview and your contact details straight away and therefore reducing the risk of your customer going elsewhere.

Prices for this start from as little as £99.
