In today’s market a mobile website is essential.
Many of the new websites today use what is called a responsive website. These adjusts to any screen size and so do not need a dedicated mobile website unless you want to add some different features for mobile users.
Unfortunately many websites today do not have a responsive website or a mobile website. This is sad for that business when you look at the stats.
In a recent survey of small businesses more than half (52%) of respondents said their website is mobile-optimized thanks to the increased use of mobile phones.
Additionally, 14% of US small businesses said because of the increase, they built mobile-optimized emails, and 11% said they use SMS marketing.
Perhaps surprisingly, 40% of small businesses have done none of these things. A separate survey from RBC Capital Markets also found that most small and medium-sized businesses based in the US still don’t have a mobile-optimized website. However, the share that does has grown significantly over the past year.
Old Website Was the Main Reason For no Mobile Website
The reason many of these businesses have not installed or upgraded to a mobile websites is varied.
- Old HTML site is harder to mobilize – easy to add stand alone mobile website
- Have no access to update – A little research can find this out
- Web developer out of business – Your site site can be moved easily.
- To expensive – not as much as you may think
Many of these can easily be fixed for a small outlay or a DIY solution.
What Sort Of Mobile Website?

The basics are:
