Do you need a mobile website for your Northern Virginia business? The answer is yes, if you want to increase sales and revenues, easily!
If you don’t have a mobile website (sometimes referred to as a mobile app) for your business, chances are you are losing sales and revenue that could easily be yours … and don’t even know it!
Why Mobile Websites are a Must Have for Northern Virginia Businesses Today
More and more local customers use their mobile phones instead of their personal or desktop computers to find and research local businesses before they buy.
Businesses with mobile-enabled websites get found faster and easier on mobile phone searches than businesses without mobile-enabled websites.
As you can see from the example above, mobile websites are specially designed and configured to make it fast and easy for people to:
Click to call your business;
Get directions to your business;
See your business information at a glance, in a format that is easily viewed on a small mobile phone screen or mobile device screen.
Do You Know What Your Website Looks Like on a SmartPhone?
Websites that are not mobile-enabled are harder to read on small phone screens. Sometimes, they don’t even show up at all on a smartphone screen!
Chart House Website Viewed on Iphone
As you can see in the example to the right, when I visit the Chart House website, my iphone displays a black screen with a message instructing the viewer to download a special plug-in to view the website. Many people won’t know what to do with this message, and won’t want bother with downloading the plug-in required to view the website properly.
The Restaurant Eve website (below) viewed on an iphone lacks any kind of navigation to guide the viewer to the restaurant’s menu, directions to the restaurant, or any other helpful information.
