In this day and age, the FASTER and EASIER someone can access your website the better.

More importantly, how your website LOOKS and FUNCTIONS in this arena is the #1 determiner of whether or not you will gain or lose a sale.

This is why many companies now have Mobile Websites.

Here’s an example of why this is so important:  

Joe Smith has just come home from vacation to a flooded basement.  He needs someone to come do an emergency cleanup ASAP.  What he wants is a quick, no nonsense way to find a Water Damage Restoration Company NOW.  With his cell phone in hand, he begins his search.  If he goes to a local business site and he cannot find a quick emergency tap-to-call tab within SECONDS, he is more likely to go to another page that has the INSTANT ACCESS he is looking for.

 

Plain and Simple: Mobile Websites provide a mobile phone user a fast, easy, and pleasant experience when they are looking for what they need.

Here are a couple of my clients who are kicking their competitor’s butts by having a Mobile Website:
