What is a mobi site?
A mobile enabled website means that your website can EASILY be viewed on any device; any screen size connected to the internet. So whether you have a small screen Blackberry or a larger screen iPhone or even a 7" tablet - you are guaranteed that your website appears perfectly each time. No more scrolling around the small screen to find anything. This is crucial as with so much competition out there, the customer will simply move on if he/she can not read something clearly.
Traditionally, access to the Web has been via fixed-line services like dial up and ADSL with a desktop computer. However, the web is becoming more accessible by portable and wireless devices and the move to mobile Internet access has been accelerating with the rise since 2008 of larger multi touch smart phones, and of multi touch tablet computers since 2010.
Thanks to the birth of smart-phones, tablets, e-readers, and several different types of mobile phones, we live in a world where anyone can access the internet on-the-go. Unfortunately, websites have been designed for use on a standard computer monitor and higher resolution display screen and this does not show up well at lower resolutions screen of a smart phone.
Hospitality industry world-wide
In the Hospitality and travel industry world-wide, supplying a mobile website is no longer a questionable option, it’s a necessity! A large amount of customers now use their connected smart-phones and mobile devices to complete a hotel booking or to take advantage of features and amenities most resorts offer through mobile applications.
According to eMarketer, from 2010 to 2012, the number of customers booking via a smart phone or mobile device will climb from 8.7 million to 18.1 million.
Consumers expect readily accessible and hassle-free support, and there is no question that a mobile website can offer related features. The point is that, creating a mobile website version for your establishment will offer customers several different opportunities to remain satisfied.
A mobile website can be utilized in many different ways; including to provide booking support; customer service options and local trip or event planning and directions. With so many options and ways to utilize a mobile website version, there is absolutely no reason for your establishment not to take advantage of the mobile industry.
Where to from here?
With that being said, it’s time to get working on the mobile site version of your standard website! This is essentially the same content source as your normal website except that it is specifically coded and scripted to have a 'fluid' design which can easily adapt to any screen size intuitively.
You have no option - you will need to get your website made mobile-friendly in order to stay ahead. Contact us if you want us to send you a quote for a mobile site.
