Increase Your Customer Base

More than 300 million iPhones and Androids are already in the market today. Other platforms including Windows Phone, Blackberries who still have tens of millions of phones. Internet traffic from these mobile devices has exceeded 20% and continues to rise. Are you willing to give up one in these potential customers just because your website is not compatible with a mobile device?

Fonts can be too small, images are too large, navigation can be clunky, Flash simply won't work, lengthy page loads, and the list goes on and on.
