Can You See Your Website on Mobile Devices?
It’s true that every mobile phone cannot display Flash. That means that on iPhones and iPads nothing will be seen in the place of your Flash website except a “missing plug-in” image asking you to install Flash, which unfortunately can’t be done. With Blackberry and Android devices, you could download the app, but with Adobe announcing that it has stopped developing Flash player for all mobile browsers, even those apps are obsolete!!
Further…one of the main issues has been that mobile phone developers have had is the problem of power. While our personal computers have extremely powerful processors, the processors in mobiles are currently still too weak to display Flash objects. Even if the CPU’s were powerful enough, it would use up the phone’s battery life significantly and what use would that be? More inconvenient and frustrating than anything.
In summary, if folks can’t get into your site they’ll simply leave and go to one of your competitor’s sites! So it really doesn’t make all that much sense to create a site that is not viewable by the largest, fastest growing type of devices on the planet!
If you’re concerned that your Flash designed website can’t be seen on mobile phones, give us a call today at 403-257-7047 to discuss your options.
Interested in more targeted search results?
Google’s online advertising platform may just be the marketing tool you’ve been searching for…
Adwords is a quick and easy way to advertise your business on Google. Ads are created using keywords, which are words or phrases related to your business. You have more control over your results appearing in Google as you can choose when you want them to appear.
Related & Relevant
Your ads appear above or alongside the organic (free) search results when someone searches for words and phrases (keywords) that are relevant to your business. Being relevant means that your ads, keywords, and landing page (the page on your website that you’re linking to) are all closely related to what a customer might be searching for.
Adwords offers a great way to advertise your business online because now you’re advertising to an audience that’s already interested in you which can help drive potential customers to your website.
AdWords Costs are Based on Pay-per-Click, Daily Budget & Ad Performance
No matter what your budget, you can display your ads on Google and it’s advertising network. The best part about Adwords is that you only pay (pay-per-click) when someone actually clicks on your ad and visits your website.
