How Do I Convert a Website To Mobile?

During your process of trying to find a mobile website design solution you may have come across websites that take your domain address and “convert” it into a mobile version ready for you to preview and amend. The speed at which it does this is certainly a compelling reason to buy. However, actually testing these services you may find that they typically include far too much information – most of which can be unnecessary. You’ll then be asked to select which content you would like to remove – which often isn’t an easy process.

The key to mobile marketing success is to understand that consumers interact with mobile websites in a significantly different way to that of desktop sites and to simply copy all the content and images into your mobile site will not produce a website with fantastic usability.

An alternative approach would be to take your core company information (given during the sign-up process) and the tools to enhance it as you wish. With the MymCart system you can add new sections, display videos, add galleries and service pages at your own leisure.

To view mobile marketing as converting desktop websites to mobile ones is to miss the point. Mobile websites should be lean, built with a degree of thought and designed to be interacted with in a completely different manner.

The option does exist to convert websites to a mobile-optimised format with what’s called responsive design. However, this is typically only an option when websites are designed from scratch and is not generally an option if you wish to convert your current website to better serve your mobile-using customers.  Responsive design requires a web-designer to alter the site’s CSS styling and the template that uses them. This is often not an option if you wish to solve your mobile issues quickly and easily.

We believe that giving you the flexibility to manage your website from scratch is a much more efficient process.
