If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably heard that one of the posts from the Wine Club Group that we wrote last year recently “went viral.” Tricia wrote all about what we learned and got out of this event, but I’m going to talk about how we survived (and didn’t even know it was happening).
If you share links to your website via Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) you need to be ready for mobile visitors.
First thing in the morning, as I wait for my first cup of coffee to hit my bloodstream, I’m on my phone. First, I go through email and answer anything urgent. Then, over to Facebook and catch up on what happened while I slept. And finally, I’ll open TweetDeck and go through my Twitter feed.
When I see a story I want to read, and click through, many times the linked site doesn’t have a mobile version of their site. When this happens, I end up going back and favoriting the tweet to read later. But making your site mobile-friendly isn’t difficult. In fact, if you use WordPress, you can have it done in less than 5 minutes.
