Why Does Your Website Need to Be Mobile-friendly?

Why Does Your Website Need to Be Mobile-friendly?

Posted by Trevor Current on Aug 2, 2013

In September of 2012, Google published a study titled “What Users Want Most from Mobile Sites Today”. The study found that 96% of consumers have encountered sites that weren’t designed with mobile in mind. It also found that when it happens, it can be bad for business – 48% reported feeling frustrated and annoyed. Feel free to click on the link above and read the study, and in the meantime I wanted to share a few quotes from the study with you. “By 2013, more people will use their mobile phones than PCs to get online” Users expect their mobile experience to be as good as their desktop experience. 55% say “A frustrating experience on a website hurts my opinion of the brand overall” 52% say “A bad mobile experiencemakes me less likely to engage with a company.”   A bad mobile experience can cost you customers.   Not having a mobile-friendly site benefits your competitors. 66% of users find mobile sites through search engines. If they don’t like what they find… …79% say they’re likely to go back to search and look elsewhere. …they’re FIVE TIMES more likely to abandon the task altogether. “75% of customers prefer a mobile-friendly site.” Source: Google...

Social Media Checklist

Social Media Checklist

Posted by Trevor Current on Jan 3, 2012

Social Media offers some great opportunities to help build awareness for your business. Getting your name out where your potential customers are is the first step in gaining new business. Three proven target areas to focus on are your website, Facebook and Twitter profiles. To make sure you don’t miss out on opportunities, I’ve put together a simple checklist of things you should be doing to help build your social media presence.   Blog + Website = Blogsite If you don’t already have a blog, create one as a companion to your website If you’re not happy with your current website, create a blogsite using WordPress. There are many great templates out there along with advanced templates that will allow you to create your own designs. I suggest staying away from the “Flash” website templates as it causes a lot of problems for mobile devices like the iPhone and iPad. Create educational articles and provide resources that your potential and current customers can use. Invite Guest Bloggers to write original articles. This helps bring variety and personality to your site and will increase traffic. Make sure you update your blog with a new post at least once a week. Make sure to include buttons to Twitter, Facebook and other social sites to make sharing your articles easy. Add an email opt-in form to your blog to capture email addresses from your website visitors. Regardless of what some may say, email marketing is not dead, and a quality list of prospects is very valuable. Make sure your contact information is available on every page or there is a contact button...

10 Tips to Get on the Twitter “Suggested for You” List of Your Prospects

10 Tips to Get on the Twitter “Suggested for You” List of Your Prospects

Posted by Trevor Current on Jan 3, 2012

In August 2010, Twitter launched a service called “Suggestions for You” to make the process of finding new people to follow a little easier. The algorithms suggest people you don’t currently follow that you may find interesting. The suggestions are based on several factors, including people you follow and the people they follow. When you login to Twitter.com you’ll see the suggestions on the right side of your Twitter feed and in the Find People section. You’ll also see recommendations for similar users when you view another account’s profile. If there is a user that you’re not interested in following you can click the X button and they won’t show them to you again. This new service undoubtedly was inspired by Facebook’s “People You May Know” feature. I’ve found many old friends on Facebook this way and I’m sure Twitter saw the value this feature holds and rolled it into their set of tools. Third party developers will be able to take advantage of this new feature soon through a new API so look for it to roll out in the applications you’re already using. So “Suggestions for You” is a great way to find people to follow on Twitter, but it can also be a great way for other people to find you. Now more than ever it’s important to be following the types of people that you want as clients and to be Tweeting about things that they’re interested in. On the Twitter support page titled “Suggestions For You – Discover Who to Follow!” at the very bottom of the page under the heading “Where do you...
