    A mobile website is very important for a business these days. Right Now potential customers are trying to find them on the mobile phones…but many do not have a mobile compliant website. As you know mobile devices have transformed our lives the way we communicate, learn, play and do business! Mobile internet use is exploding! Companies are losing sales and customers without a mobile friendly web site. Remember, mobile customers are on the go. When they are looking for something on your website, they want it now. If it doesn’t load properly, or if they have problems navigating, they will end up going to a competitor’s website instead.
