It is more and more essential for your brand’s online presence to be ready for viewer consumption across mobile devices - the latest Pew Internet Project on mobile technology found that 34% of Internet users browse the web mostly using their phones, and over half of adults between 35-44 own a tablet computer.
One route is to optimize your site for viewing across all devices using either responsive or adaptive design, allowing for a unified set of analytics and a single platform for content management. Another is to create a mobile app for your business. This creates an additional platform to manage but has the benefit of being more accessible on the go and potentially cheaper.
You ignore mobile at your own risk. Are you acting on a mobile strategy that best suits your company?
