A recent LawMarketing.com post shared an infographic that shows what your mobile optimized website should look like (see below). It also compiled some pretty compelling reasons why your law firm website needs to be optimized for mobile, including:
- 99% of smartphone owners use their mobile browser at least once a day
- 95% of mobile users use their devices for local searches (including looking for a local lawyer!)
- 48% of mobile users feel that you do not care about them if your site is not mobile friendly
There is a website that will optimize your existing website for mobile for free. You can find it at http://mobilizingusa.com/. The service is provided by New York-based bMobilized, which says it has already optimized more than two million websites for free.
They also offer a premium version for mobile websites that will let you add plug-ins – for example, you can add a function that allows people to tap your phone number to call you, or add a geo-location plug-in that lets people find you quickly and easily.
One caveat: if you try the free service, be sure to check your mobilized site to make sure all the information has transferred successfully. If it doesn’t, you might want to invest a little money in a customized version.
