Best yet you can control your content yourself.
Mobile Device Purchasing Surpassed Projections
According to a number of sources roughly 30% of all online purchases yesterday (Black Monday) were made from a mobile device. For those of us that have been resisting this fast growing trend the data strongly suggests we need to get on board. It’s not just purchases that are being made from mobile devices that should concern your. All kinds of people are choosing the convenience of using their hand held device rather than firing up the laptop to look things up. If I think about it we consider my iPad a mobile device (which it is) and eliminate the searches I do for business on my desktop I’m doing 80% of my personal searches on a mobile device. These are mostly for personal information much of which involves products and services.
One reason I shy away from using my phone to search is so many websites have not been optimized or converted to display well on the small screen. It is frustrating to enlarge the image then scroll around trying to find the section of the page that has the information I want. I bail on the site and the company loses any hope of getting my business. If you don’t have a Mobile website your are losing business too.
At least for now those of you that invest in a mobile website will have an advantage in search results over your competitors that don’t. Google would rather show a mobile site at the top of the search results page than show a regular website. This happens for the reason I listed above. Google wants us to have a great search experience and showing a regular site on a mobile device is not a great user experience. So, match, set and point to the businesses that have a mobile site. They win!
Here’s the great news!!! Creating a Mobile website for your business is not complicated nor is it expensive. There are two reasons for this. A) The content should be abbreviated. People are looking for your key information not all of your information. Therefore, the site can be perfectly effective with just a few well thought out pages. B) There are a lot of great tools available for mobile site construction that help reduce the price. Creating your Mobile Website is not nearly as complicated or expensive as it was just 6 months ago. A small investment now will help your business be found more frequently in a mobile search. There are more and more mobile searches taking place so this has to increase your exposure in the digital marketplace.
So, all that being true what’s the problem, why are you waiting? This needs to get done you can’t ignore it any longer. It’s time to take action. By the way we can get you a a great mobile website with no muss and no fuss for less than $400. It’s easy just call 772-567-6768 now.

Having a great experience with Steve Scott at The Tampa SEO Training Academy. Continuing education is important for all professionals. With the rapid pace of change in Search Engine Optimization it’s important to get out of the office and do a learning from time to time. It’s been a terrific couple of days loaded with valuable information. There is more value coming for all my present and future clients. Thank-you Steve.
