Mobile Website Best Practices

One of the first things your business should determine when designing your mobile website is what is the main activity that you want visitors to take or what is the most important information they want from you. Your mobile website should not incorporate all of the functionality and content of your traditional website. If you try to do this, your mobile site will be difficult to navigate and probably take forever to load.

To summarize the aforementioned best practices for mobile website design:

  1. Focus on the customer – Design your mobile website around what your customers are currently doing most often on your standard website.

  1. Use a scrolling feature – Making your mobile visitors click through multiple pages is not a good idea.
