Mobile Website Design & Development Services
Assertive Media develops websites that are mobile friendly (responsive) however some interfaces require dedicated mobile websites to functional properly. We offer a complete mobile website design and development service.
If you have a pre-existing website that does not function on a mobile device we can help develop a mobile version that will operate correctly on Symbian, iOS and Android. Mobile websites can retain functionality of desktop based websites, however due to screen size limitations design elements may need to change.
Modern websites that are responsive will automatically port themselves to display correctly on mobile devices, however older websites may not offer this (non responsive). If this is the case separate mobile websites can be created that are optimised for mobile devices (this includes portable tablets).
Some websites even if responsive may not function correctly due to technology, layout etc. In which case a mobile website separate from the responsive or non responsive version can be created. Assertive Media offers a mobile website development service which is fast, cost effective and compliant in multi screen environments.
I have a website which does not work properly on all phones?
There are 2 options, you can either look at redeveloping your existing website to be a responsive website, or a mobile website (separate) would also be a solution. Assertive Media can assist with both from developing a new website in HTML 5 / CSS 3 that is responsive and uses porting to display correctly on all devices or with the development of a separate mobile website.
Websites even 2-3 years old can be out of date and no longer conform to multi screen environments.
How can I test how my website looks across multiple mobile platforms?
There are a number of tools available online, a good tool is available at responsinator.com which will allow you to test your current website at all major device resolutions. If your website does not fit the screen or vanishes out of sight (with visible scroll bars) than the website you are viewing is “Not Responsive”.
Why do I need a responsive website?
Mobile search and web usage has sky rocketed in the last 5 years, alongside this website sales and enquiries are easy to do on modern mobile devices, meaning any websites that aren’t responsive could be losing out on potential revenue and website traffic.Enquire about Mobile Website Development
More often than not if a website isn’t responsive or does not scale / appear correctly on a mobile device most visitors will leave the website having never completed any actions i.e. enquiring or purchasing. With future mobile device search growth predicted to exceed desktop usage, any business / organisation with a website that is not responsive could suffer as a result.
How much will it cost?
Mobile websites can be surprising cost effective and inexpensive depending on the nature of the website. Dynamic mobile websites will cost more, but generally, existing infrastructure can be used i.e. payment processing gateways etc.Enquire about Mobile Website Development
Mobile website development starts from £99, complete website rebuilds on mobile platforms start from £249.
Assertive Media will also setup a mobile sub domain for the website to operate on i.e. m.yourdomain.co.uk.
Mobile Websites on Sub Domains
Mobile websites that are not a part of a responsive website will generally require their own sub domain to operate. Generally, a sub domain such as mobile.yourbusiness.co.uk or m.yourbusiness.co.uk is recommended. Newer HTML 5 websites use viewporting and fluid grid design so that they can scale to fit mobile screen resolutions. As mobile phone CPU processing power had continued to advance, no longer are seperate websites required. New HTML 5 websites when built correctly can scale to fit all mobile phone resolutions. However, some existing websites have significant architecture which makes replacing the website an unrealistic prospect, this is where mobile website development comes in to provide an alternate solution.
Mobile Internet Usage & Marketplace
Mobile usage for internet browsing has increased significantly and early into 2014 usage peaked in excess of desktop usage for commerce and web searches. Mobile devices does not mean mobile phones alone, the term encapsulates portable devices that are not desktop based i.e. Mobile Phones, Tablets, Netbooks.
The size of the mobile market is significant meaning that any business not catering for this is potentially going to lose a large share of market growth. This is why it is now more important than ever to ensure your business website operate correctly cross platform.
Assertive Media will lead you from start to finish with your development and design requirements for a mobile website. Our team of developers have significant experience in coding mobile websites so that they work, display and function correctly cross platform.
