Going "mobile" isn't simply about you re-sizing your webpage so it fits properly on the mobile screen. (So many make that false assumption) It's about understanding the nature of the mobile space and the behavioral pattern of its users. "Fitting" is cosmetics, you can get any web designer to help you with that.
What we do is help you increase your leads and conversions - after all, they should be the only things that matter! It's about leveraging the fast and fluid environment to your company's benefit with our Buttons technology. Want to know how? Just send us a quick note today.
Even if you have no intention of using our services because you have your own IT department or web guy, and you just want to learn something or get some information for free. That's okay too. We are not shy about sharing our knowledge. Talk to you soon.
Everyone knows about apps. Apps are generally associated with iPhones and Blackberrys – and that in itself is the problem. They are made for specific platforms, BUT over 75% of smartphones in the U.S. run on platforms other than the iPhone.
HTC Android devices have surged past the iPhone in sales. They use the open-source Google platform. How many will jump on? Nokia still owns 36% of the worldwide operating market.
So what happens when Windows makes a push for market shares? Sony? Samsung? Motorola? LG? They didn't all die and go to cell phone heaven - you know!
Do you want to make an app for each and every phone that comes out, what does that do to your budget?
Or do you want an all-in-one solution that will serve you longer than it takes mobile devices to become "unpopular" and "replaced".
We can help.
You must be doing some sort of marketing today. We know – because that's how we found you. However, we were unable to look at your website on our mobile device. Lucky we were not trying to use your service.
We know that you just finished a campaign with a "deals site" that promoted your service. We also know that you did not make a tremendous amount of money because you gave such a good deal, and you are really counting on referrals and "exposure" to drive your business going forward. How do you expect all your new clients to talk about you – over the phone of course! They will probably look at your website after they get off the phone – on the phone. Lucky we found you.

However, our first advice to you is to go mobile, you don't want to start last in a sprint. Everyday that you are not mobile, you competitors are taking your customers and your business away from you, and they don't want to give it back.
You should call us now if you are serious about the future of your business.
It's only a matter if time before mobile/tablet devices will carry more weight than a PC, by then it will be way too late for your company to make up precious ground.
Based on these two criterias, (of course all general existing parameters didn't just disappear, but they are giving weight to mobile features) you will be given credit in your google organic rankings:
Why did Google do this?
It's quite simple really. It is the only way to continue to offer highly optimized search experiences that best fit user expectations - how else can they sell AdWords? Google knows where you are searching from, they even know what device you are coming from - they have known for years!
It only makes sense for them to offer you sites you can actually see properly, so you will use them next time you want to search for something.
Conversely, the same applies to your business. If you want people to use your service this time and next, you should offer the best possible experience so they won't dislike you.
Google cares about mobile, so should you.
Here at Stay Connected, we don't just make pretty websites, we make sites that will help you get connected to new clients, and we make sure you stay connected to all your clients through the only device that they will never leave home without - the mobile device.
Too often in business we catch ourselves saying, "Wish we were around when THAT happened, we would have made so much money." Just ask the Klondike gold seekers on the wrong end of the 19th century.
Would you really make more money - we ask? What would change in your business tomorrow if you didn't change something today?
It happens in every era - especially after recessions. New ideas arise, new industries are born, rebounds are made, and newer and stronger relationships are forged between businesses and clients.
We are telling you that mobile marketing in 2010 is like the PC in 1996, but only faster this time. Over a decade ago, 1996-1997, the number of websites grew 3x. Today, 2009-2010, the number of mobile websites grew 7x.
Can you afford not to go mobile? Here at Stay Connected, we want to help you take that first step to get connected to your (new) customers with something that is dear to them – their mobile phones.
