And now you’re thinking, okay great, how do I make my site mobile optimized? As much as we’d like you to give us a call or send us an email to have us do it for you, here’s some tips for our DIY friends. (of course, we strongly encourage hiring a professional):
- Use a web building site that includes mobile optimization from the get-go
- Check to see if your web building site has optional extras or plugins that can be installed
- Consider using Facebook or another social media platform to advertise your business (these often are already optimized or have apps that can accessed via smartphones)
[IMPORTANT!] It’s very important to note that the mobile-optimization process is not always as easy as installing a plugin. Sites that are built prior to the WYSIWYG* era do often require a professional due to the process of bringing the entire site (and all of its content) to current web optimization standards prior to bringing it to current mobile optimization standards. For more information on optimizing your site for mobile, email Designing Cousins web guru Brandon for more details.
*WYSIWYG = What You See Is What You Get programming – the process of image over text live editing for websites
