Mobile Web Design, Marketing, and Hosting
- Google reports that 61% of mobile web viewers experience frustration with websites not optimized for mobile viewing.
- 40% will visit their competitor’s mobile website instead.
- In 2015, 60% of all searches will be done on a mobile device.
Smart phones can indeed access normal websites, but without proper formatting for smartphone screens, tablets, and iPads, your website will be hard to read. Additionally, if your site is built in Flash, some phones won’t display the website at all. To make your site mobile-friendly, your business needs a mobile web design created just for mobile devices, and you’ll need a browser sniffer that redirects cell phone users to the mobile website.
With the advent of HTML 5 and website applications like WordPress, there is no excuse to not have a mobile friendly website. Depending on your needs, KO Websites will either make your website responsive to mobile devices, or we’ll build a custom mobile website with content adapted for an ideal mobile experience.

Why Cell Phone & Mobile Device Marketing?
Another reason to consider getting a mobile website is social media. Today, you’re more likely to be found on social media via a cell phone or mobile device than on a desktop computer. Among U.S. adults who go online, more than half (54%) access social media websites with their mobile phones, according to new research from Pew Internet and the American Life Project.
This report, like others, shows that social media is an increasingly popular mobile activity.
Mobile websites for cell phones and iPads is a must have
What does all of this mean for you? It means you need a mobile website to stay relevant and not lose access to the growing mobile web device population. Reports indicate that if you use social media, you should expect a significant proportion of your audience to be viewing your business web pages on a mobile device. By next year, search engine product and services searching will be done more on mobile devices than they are on tabletop PC’s and Macs!
