Do Your Customers Want & Need A Mobile Website

I suspect you’ve noticed that many of your customers and prospects are using mobile devices to access the web. As a matter of fact, I’m willing to bet, you’re doing the exact same thing as a business owner in your spare time.

Well, many of the larger brands – Home Depot, Lowe’s, Wal-mart, Target, Sears, etc. have noticed the same thing and they’ve done something about it.

They’ve created a mobile experience for their mobile customers and prospects. Why?

The #1 reason for using a mobile device for a local business search is due to the on-the-go necessity for fast information.

Big brands have a lot to lose and know their local stores need traffic.

And why not? It’s good business. It makes good sense. If my customers like mobile, then I like mobile and I’m going to give them mobile. Why? Because competition is fierce, and customers have a short attention span. If they can’t find what they want in 3-5 seconds on your website  - they’re on to the next. It’s that simple.

Where does that leave you as a small business owner.  Your best customers and prospects now know what a mobile optimized website looks like, feels like, and operates.  Now your customers and prospects are getting used to this experience and will soon demand it from you – whether you’re ready or not.

If you’re like most business owners, myself included, the thing that keeps most of us awake is how to find new leads, connect and better engage existing customers, and get referrals from existing customers.  

There are only two ways to do that -communicate with them as often and in as many ways as you can.

Today, I’m going to give you the opportunity to do just that for  just $1/day and for no more than $2.73/day. But for now, before I explain to you why this offer is so special and you’d be crazy to pass it up, let me tell you why getting your site mobile ready is critical going into 2013.

BIG CORPORATE BRANDS ARE SPOILING YOUR

CUSTOMERS AND PROSPECTS - THIS SPELLS OPPORTUNITY OR DISASTER

There are tons of stats – they come from a variety sources and they all lead to the same conclusion: 

Why Google Respects The Mobile Web So Heavily

Customers and prospects are on the go and they usually start their Google searches on their smart phone or tablet. Google has made it resounding clear – by offering FREE mobile landing pages for businesses, focusing on mobile in it’s search engine results, and even at times making Google Adwords advertisers pay more for mobile ads if they don’t have a mobile optimized website – that mobile is key.

Google makes money when it’s customers/searchers have a good experience and find what they want – whether on desktop, tablet, or mobile.

Google Gives Away Free Mobile Landing Pages

 

Even Google Believes The Time For Mobile Is Now?

So what does this mean for your business and your brand?

It means, like taxes, you will have to deal with mobile sometime in the future.  Why? The number of mobile devices in use currently outnumbers the actual number of people on the planet and at least 40% of teenagers choose the iPad as their number one gift this Christmas.

Top that off with the fact that even toddlers know how to use an iPad – including my 2 year old niece.

    Mobile Website Examples

    Which site would you prefer your clients and prospects read as a 1st introduction to your business?

    Remember, mobile users – like you and me – use our thumbs to scroll and navigate. Make your site thumb-friendly.

    Forcing your prospects and customers to read your desktop website on their mobile device is like asking them to read in the dark. Furthermore, if your prospects are finding your business website on different devices, why wouldn’t you optimize for them?

    These are real working example mobile website mock-ups we recently presented to a prospective client.

    We can do the same for you and more.

    Here’s The Truth At The End Of The Day

    Don’t get me wrong. A mobile optimized website is not going to make you a millionaire. As a matter of fact, it may create a bit of extra work for you.

    But let me ask you this? How do you want to be thought of in your prospect or customer’s mind? Do you want them to harbor resentment about your brand or think you’re stuck in the past and can’t relate to them as a customer?

    Is it worth it to you to get an edge on your competition by making sure your website is absolutely accesible to each and every one of your prospects and customers?

    Are your prospects and customers worth the trouble to make sure they can consume your online content? Your business hours, locations information, menu offers, emergency service numbers, and office phone number?

    61% of Smartphone Users Search For Local Info On The Go With Their Device

    They are literally begging you to take advantage of their desire to spend money with you.  If you don’t take the hint, guess what? Sooner or later someone else will.

    Are You Paying For Television, Radio, Or Print Ads? Advertisers: Get A Better Return From Your Advertising With This Simple Tweak

    Remember, more of your prospects than ever before are seeing your print, radio, and TV ads on the go.  They’re not waiting until they get home to find you and your website. What will they find when they get there on their smartphone?

    Forbes Magazine - Find the article here

    Forbes Magazine recently published an article stating that businesses should have 3 directives now:

      • A Website
      • A Phone Number
      • A Mobile App

    But here’s what they didn’t take into account for small businesses -

      • 81% of users prefer mobile sites to apps for price research*
      • 79% for product reviews*
      • 63% for purchasing*

    *(Adobe Mobile Experience Survey & eMarketer 2011 via SearchEngineLand)

    Isn’t this why you’re online in the first place??????

    You want your prospects and potential customers have immediate access to your price list, menus, special offers, business hours, testimonials and rave reviews, etc.

    The Benefit Of Going Mobile

    Making your primary web properties ready for mobile has several benefits. From social media integration to higher ROI on advertising, mobile will increase your prospect/customer engagement and help you keep in touch with them more effective – on their terms.

    Here is just a brief summary of why mobile engagement leads to a solid ROI:

      • Total Integration –  At least half of your Facebook customers and prospects are using Facebook on their smartphones. Same with Twitter and your website. If you’re not sending them to an optimized web page – chances are, they won’t read it.
      • Company Reputation/Customer Retention- Keep your prospects and customers happy - 57 percent of consumers will not recommend a business with a poorly designed mobile site. Similarly, 40 percent of consumers will go to a competitor’s site after a bad mobile experience (Source: Compuware, 2012)
      • Better return on your advertisingMost of your prospects and customers are not reading your ad at home on the couch.  And even if they are, if they’re interested , they’re more likely to do some research about you from their smartphone or tablet. Are you sending them to a mobile optimized webpage?
      • Mobile Email Newsletters Conversion Rates- Although email open rates seem to be at an all time low when compared to SMS/text messaging, companies are still making big on email marketing. The problem is, no one is going to stay very long and read your non-mobile optimized web offer if they can’t read the page. If you’re sending any kind of email newsletter, you MUST remember checking email is one of the top 10 activities for smartphone users.
      • Mobile searchers make quicker decisions – and often times buy from you if you can solve their problem. Additionally, mobile users have a larger opportunity to purchase from a local business shortly after the search while on-the-go and are more likely to purchase a product after searching compared with PC searchers.

    Who Is Burning Sage Media?

    Okay so you want to know more about me Monica Dillon, and my company Burning Sage Media.

    Well we’ve been around since 2006. I started out wanting to just promote my own music as a musician and songwriter. I was featured on NPR after Hurricane Katrina for a song I wrote called “When The Levee Broke.” I’ve performed abroad in Germany and personally traveled through much of Europe & the U.S.

    I put my first website online with the help of a web designer in 2003 and realized quickly I needed a better system. More on that story in the future.

    You’ll be happy to know that I do speak “Geek.” I have a background in electrical engineering and attended Vanderbilt University.

    So 99.9% of the time, when I recommend something to my clients I’ve actually tested it, used it, and knew exactly how it will work and integrate into their business. I don’t just sell stuff and hope it works for you.

    I moved back to New Orleans, my hometown, in late ’98 to be closer to family, thought I would leave after a couple of years….I’m still here.

    Since graduating from college I worked in manufacturing, real estate sales and appraising, as well as technical sales and training.

    I have and maintain a client list of customers on the East Coast as well as the West Coast, and locally here in the greater New Orleans area.

    I’ve worked with contractors, an attorney, consultant, musicians, filmmakers, nonprofit, personal trainers and speakers.

    In general, I help clients achieve long-lasting organic search engine rankings or as we call it in the business as SEO, for months and years for numerous keywords in their business.

    I also help clients achieve amazing traffic focusing on content & video marketing and their pre-sales process and conversions.

    Additionally, I’ve helped numerous clients grow their brand around the Internet making sure they were found and visible to those leads would benefit from their information and marketing/educational material.

    I was recently reminded of the famous Zig Ziglar quote. He recently passed away, but this quote says it all and speaks to why I’m in business today. “You can have everything in life you want, if you will help enough people get what they want.”

    And that’s what I’m trying to achieve. Plain and simple.

    If I do a good job with you and help you get more customers who are loyal and become repeat customers and if I help you get new leads and traffic to your website, then you’ll continue to do business with me and refer me to your friends. It’s that simple.

    A lot of what motivates me as well is my life long passions around the arts and wellness. You can catch me jumping rope in City Park on any given day or you can catch me somewhere like the House of Blues performing with my all women’s funk band “The Soulkestra.”

    I enjoy traveling and just recently got back from the Smokey Mountains. So for me, I enjoy working while I travel and mixing work and play together.

    It works and allows me to spend time with my family.

    So this gives you an idea about who I am and I look forward to us getting to know each other even better real soon.

    When you take me up on this opportunity today, you don’t just become a customer, but a part of the Burning Sage Media family for life.

    I genuinely care about how you doing in business and if you’re happy with our services and if you’re happy with the way your business is going.

    So let’s get started and let do some good stuff together.

    “Burning Sage Enterprises/Burning Sage Media has transformed my businesses.

    As a performer and an educational consultant I needed to represent my accomplishments and potential services to multiple constituencies.

    Burning Sage Media was able to hear what I had to say and use a variety of mediums within the site to translate my messaging for a range of potential clients.

    One morning, I was in an exploratory meeting with a principal. He said, “I like what your saying, you should consider getting a website.”

    I gave him my web address and watched him go through it. “Wow, this is really nice, very impressive. Lots of information …if I hadn’t met you, I’d still have a sense of your personality.”  I was already pleased with the site and that experience confirmed its effectiveness. Since working with Burning Sage Enterprises I’ve watched my consulting business grow 600%.

    On the performance side, I’ve been booked all over the country, with consistent comments about how much people have enjoyed watching clips of my shows on the website. I’ve saved time by pointing people to the site to find my bio and pictures to put on fliers.

    Being able to easily update my shows allows me to keep my audiences abreast of my activities as soon as I’m ready to communicate.

    As I have established both of my businesses, Burning Sage Media has been right by my side to help me gain clarity, find & use tools that help me expand my business.

    My work with Burning Sage Media also pushes me to think deeply about how I can best use my online resources to entertain my audiences and serve the schools & communities I work with. In short, Burning Sage Media is showing me more of what’s possible

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How much?

    You’ll be happy to know that we’ve come up with a payment option that will fit most small business budgets. For just $1 day and an additional design fee, you can have a mobile site up and running in less than a week.

    How do I get started?

    Getting started is really easy. Simply click the button below and order your fully customized mobile site below.

    After your secure payment has been received, you’ll be sent to an intake form where you’ll list the details of your website and any other specific information we feel is relevant. From there, you’ll get a phone call from me and you’ll be on your way in no time at all.

    Do I have to involve my web design person?

    As a general rule, yes your web design person will need to be involved if we are to put the files we create on your existing server.

    If you don’t have a relationship with your current web designer person (we can’t think of why not), then we will happily host your mobile website for a nominal monthly fee and keep it up-to-date and secure. We will however, still need to inform your web person and have them upload a redirect file which will tell the search engine to redirect to your mobile site when someone is searching on a smart phone or a tablet.

    Additionally, if you’re using the WordPress CMS platform, we can get this process going even quicker and with even less effort. We will need to have access to your installation or a subdirectory of your site. If all of this is goofily gobble to you, don’t worry. We speak geek very well and haven’t had a problem yet.

    How can I make a return on my investment of a mobile website?

    We think getting a return on your investment is the best way to show you that integrating mobile into your current sales process is key.

    For that reason as a bonus, when you order today, we’ll show you at 11 ways to profit from mobile with your mobile website as a bonus. I can’t guarantee that this bonus will be available at a later date, but we’re sweetening the pot by adding it today.

    Are there really that many people using mobile?

    Sweetie, if you’re questioning the value of mobile at this point in the game, then you might as well take your website down and just market through Facebook or word-of-mouth. How many people are still using the Yellow Pages? Do you advertise there? It probably didn’t take much convincing to get you to see that?

    My goal is to help as many businesses as I can who are ready, who get it, and who understand the value of mobile and are ready to iterate and take their business to the next level.

    If you don’t understand that there are more mobile phones on the planet then people or that both baby boomers and babies have adopted text messaging, smart phones, and tablets, then this opportunity is probably not for you.

    How long does it take to design and launch my mobile site?

    Designing and launching a mobile website is a little bit tricky and we try to over deliver and under-promise versus over-promise and under deliver. Typically we’ve had sites ready in as little as a week.

    Again, we have to have an understanding of exactly what you want your mobile customers and prospects to do on your mobile website. This involves a little bit of conversation and just a bit of strategic planning. The rest is design work and taking elements from your existing desktop site.

    Can I see what my mobile site would look like before I buy?

    Sure, check out our mobile website sample page for some additional mock-ups. If you’d like something even more customized, we can quote you a special rate.  Contact us here.

    Will I have a say-so in how my site looks?

    Once we start the design of your mobile website, of course, you’ll have the opportunity to review it and give us the thumbs up or thumbs down.

    Since we’re typically taking and pulling from elements of your existing site, we will usually keep it in the same theme unless your desire is to completely do something new or opposite of what your current site looks like.

    Won’t I have to manage 2 different websites if I get a mobile site?

    In some cases, yes, you will be managing 2 different versions of your website. If you’re using a CMS system–specifically WordPress, we are able to integrate your current website with your new mobile website.

    Again, we can put your new website in a different directory–something like m.yourcompany.com or yourcompany.com/mobile. It really depends.

    But as a general practice, unless you actively update your site on a weekly basis and use WordPress, we’ll be adding your new mobile website to a new subdirectory specific for mobile users.
