Cash in on Mobile Websites



Consider creating mobile Websites so that they can be viewed on the small screens of mobile phones. Why? Well, far more people carry cell phones than use computers. It’s too big an audience to neglect. People like to be able to shop using their mobile devices and do not appreciate having to scroll all over the place on a big Web page layout that is not optimized for small screen viewing. So, get with it if you want to capture vast and lucrative market.

All of the major social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter already have mobile Websites. Does that tell you something?

How do you go about going mobile? It’s not that difficult, and there are several free tools available that make it possible. For instance, check out www.mofuse.com. There is a WordPress plug-in available here too. Also take a look at www.ezgenerator.com as well as www.mobisitegalore.com/faq.htm.

Speaking of Mobi, you should consider getting a new domain with the .mobi extension for your mobile Websites.

There is even a handbook on the subject of mobile marketing by Kim Dushinski available from Amazon. She also offers a comprehensive course on the subject that promises to discover how to harness the profit-building power of this cutting-edge (and practically undiscovered) marketing platform to bypass your competitors, improve profits, and reach new and existing customers easier than ever before. Hint: you get a big discount on the course if you’ve already bought the book. But I wonder what is in the course that’s not in the book. Hmm…
