Come out of the dark ages! It's time to get mobile!

Here at Dino Media we know that in order to make the most of the modern world of business you need to understand the modern approaches. This is why it surprises us just how many small (and even sometimes bigger) companies out there simply do not understand how much business can come through visitors on mobiles.

However, it seems that more and more people are becoming aware of how the world of web browsing has changed.

A recent article in the Independent covers this particular subject.

So, what does it say?

We really recommend that you take a look through this article yourself, however, in summary it states that UK small businesses are missing out on as much as £27bn thanks to the fact that they don't have a mobile optimised website. This is something that is only set to grow and by 2020 there is thought to be as much as £43bn spent on mobile websites alone.


Absolutely. Think about it this way, how often do you go on your mobile to read the news, go on Facebook or check the weather? Chances are that it is quite frequently. Okay, so what about shopping? You suddenly think about those shoes that you just need to buy or the ideal gift for someone special and the easiest way to find it is to go on your phone.

The same is true throughout the UK, at any given time people are searching for things on their mobile, through the night, and this means that if your website is not displaying properly on a mobile screen, then you might be missing out on some vital business.

What can I do to change this?

Well, the thing that you need to do the most is make sure that your website is completely responsive. Only 18% of UK small businesses have a website that is optimised for mobile, and if you are one of them then this needs to change.

It doesn't have to be complicated to make the required changes to your website. In fact, by setting it to be fully responsive (that means that it works on whatever device you are viewing it on) you can be sure that you are targeting all of your customers.
