What is a mobile website?
How is it different from a regular website?
Mobile websites are specifically designed for viewing on Mobile Devices such
as Mobile Phones. Until recently websites were meant to be seen on a
computer that has a large screen for viewing, along with reasonable
computational power & internet speed. But mobile phones in general have
smaller screens & are far less powerful than a computer. Also their internet
connection speed is much slower. So websites in their current form do not
work well on mobile phones. Hence the need for a mobile website.
• What mobile systems do you have in place?
• What valuable content do you have (web)?
• Who is in the prime targeted audience?
• How can we serve them with mobile systems?
• What will it cost?
• How much does it make?
• How long will it take to implement?
• What is the competition now doing?
"SMS Text Messaging is the next evolutionary step in
insurance marketing and maintaining customer relationships.
Agents need effective low cost solutions that allow them to
reach the largest audience possible when prospecting, as
well as a way to provide valuable, timely, efficient,
communication with their current clients and customers. Text
messaging is the answer. With more people than ever using
their cell phone as their communication hub, Text Message
communication makes good business sense."
