Mobile Websites are quickly becoming mandatory these days, if you website is not responsive and adapts to the user, then they will go to a website that is more mobile friendly. Impact Media Solutions has been providing Mobile Websites and Responsive Web Design for the past 3 years, and understands the value of Responsive Web Design. If the majority of your leads or sells come from the web, like most of our clients, then this is no longer an option.
The next thing that you want to do is to find a company that understands how to create these sites, so that your site still offers the same abilities in a scaled down mobile friendly format. I have included some of our recent launches for you to see what I am talking about, with links to these sites, so you can use them and see for yourself what Responsive Web Design is all about.
Lately there has been a rush for everyone to create apps for iPhone, Android and even Blackberry, but one of the lesser expensive alternatives you can do, that is still full featured, is to build yourself a mobile website that operates on Mobile Devices. We have been developing Mobile Websites for several years now and the thing we like about them is the flexibility we have. It is just like a regular website on smaller, so basically if you can do it on a regular sized site, you can do it on Mobile Website, although there are some things you may not want to for the sake of optimizing the site for Mobile devices. Such as you will want to limit your images, and absolutely NO FLASH, so it will run on iPhones and iPads. Then what you do is test your Mobile Website from your phone some and see how you can make it more user friendly for your clients. There is always something new you can add or do down the road, but we suggest trying to keep it as intuitive and simple as possible considering the amount space you have to work with. Below is a Mobile Website we just launched in the Wilmington/Brunswick Real Estate arena that you can search MLS from as well it will allow you to view properties that are around you without having to search anything. We enjoyed creating this Mobile Website for Plantation Properties and hope it helps them with their marketing!
