You’ve seen the figures, the computers stay home but the ___ ____ is always with them.
What is it… cell phones of course. iPhones and Smartphones to be specific. But that will probably change 100 times before this explosion happens.
But rest assured, it is not too far off in the distance. probably a year, maybe two at the most until this thing called mobile is the next best thing.
But now is the time to get in and get in fast. How you ask?
Well, how many of your websites are mobile ready or at least have a landing page that can be read on a n iPhone or Smartphone?
Ah ha…. hopefully you answered all of them, but my guess is that is not the case. But ALL the big guys have mobile ready websites and they are going to clean your clock if you don’t have one.
So how do you get there? The easiest way is to have your site as a WordPress blog and use the free plugin called WordPress Mobile Pack.
This plugin creates a page that is viewable on a Smartphone or and iPhone. It is the quickest and easiest way to get up and running on mobile.
Now if you have a few shillings in your pocket you might try Kajabi, from the crazy corral of Andy Jenkins…. which is where all the Big Boys are hosting their websites. They have killer integration and the ease of use is incredible.
It really depends on what you are looking to accomplish. If you are running a free information site then the free WordPress plugin is probably just fine.
On the other hand, if you are making a living (or plan on it) from websites then you better get up and running on the “high powered” stuff so you will be ready to compete when everything goes mobile in a year or two.
Either way, put on your protective glasses and hardhat because the next big internet explosion is coming and it WILL be mobile!
