Mobile, Mobile, Mobile - Do You Have Your Mobile On?

I keep saying get your mobile computing on now, not because I am some kinda techno wizard, but because the signs are everywhere. You must have your web site and blog set up for mobile computing. Otherwise, you are missing the move - that means it will just cost you more later and delay your access to a wider audience now. 

The recent interview with Facebook Founder Zuckerberg is another sign. In the candid interview about the nasty IPO of his company he admitted his mistake saying,  “One of the mistakes was that we spent too long focusing on was the HTML platform for the web as opposed to adopting and improving our product for mobile devices which we now firmly believe is the future of our network.” He said that they underestimated 'how fundamentally good mobile is' for their growth.   Click here to read the article.

Hey, if mobile computing is good for Facebook expansion it’s good for your expansion too. 

Going mobile is not going to cost you and arm and a leg. If it is, you’d better shop around. In reality there are two ways to get mobile quickly. One is designing your site to be compatible with mobile devices. The second is to buy a site or service that will mobilize your existing site and that costs a subscription per month. 

The foundation principle to grasp here is that “mobile” is here to stay. It is a driving force in the online world of business and growing stronger every month.

The Pros 
The up side of a mobile site design  is that once your site is done you just have to update it. Web sites have a tendency to grow in content. The longer you wait to do your  mobile site design, the more expensive it will be due to the increased content to transform.  The pros on buying a subscription mobile site is that you get a mobile site almost instantly for lots less money outta pocket in the short run.

The Cons 
Doing a mobile site design now means more cash outlay in the short run. However, in the long run you just have maintenance to your content on one site. The bad side of buying a mobile site subscription is that after a while the subscription fee would have bought you a mobile site design; instead you are still paying that subscription and having to maintain two sites.
