I’m not going to spend this article trying to convince you of the need to be mobile friendly.

The hard truth is that, as the number of smartphone users rises, folks are becoming less patient, less impressed, less engaged and plain old crapping out on sites that aren’t prepared for the mobile age.

The stats at the bottom of this article speak for themselves.  If you’re not convinced already, I don’t know what to tell you, you’ll just lose a lot of business to your more savvy competitors.

 

I wonder why I see so many websites, sales pages & landing pages that aren’t mobile friendly?

I can only think of a few reasons that may be:

  • You haven’t learned the basics and don’t know the benefits
  • There’s so much information out there that it confuses you
  • You’re overwhelmed by technology
  • You have a VA with low skills that doesn’t stay up-to-date with basic technology
  • Your web guy is okay with ripping you off by selling you a website that’s not responsive
  • You’re lazy and you don’t care

So I’m on a mission to show you how easy it is to be mobile friendly with a Responsive Design WordPress Theme.

What is Responsive design?  Well it’s the most super cool thing on the planet!  Haha, but in all seriousness, it will automatically resize your website to fit the screen of whatever device is viewing it, regardless of screen size. 

Our website is made with a Responsive Design WordPress Theme.  To see how responsiveness works, just resize your browser window right now and drag it smaller and larger and notice how the elements of the page move around based on whatever size you make the viewing screen.  Pretty cool, right?

So it doesn’t matter what device you’re viewing it on, a tablet, iPad, iPhone, Android, Motorola, whatever… and it’s pretty much future proof because it will be viewable on any new mobile device size they come up with in the future.

Here are some responsive design WordPress themes that I love.

My web developer personally vouches for these WordPress themes and says they are ‘clean & light’ (if you’re a web guy, you know what that means).  These range from free to $8 to $40 at most.

There’s really no excuse to not be mobile friendly.

I understand that you might have a huge website and moving it over to a responsive design WordPress theme might be a beast of a job.  Or maybe you’re not ready to get a new website yet.

But if you’re doing any kind of online business, I know for a fact that you REGULARLY create new sales pages, landing pages, opt-in pages and event pages (at least you should be).  So at bare minimum, you should be making all your new stuff going forward with responsive design WordPress themes so that you’ll get the maximum results.

 

So here are some great responsive design WordPress themes for standalone landing page & sales page projects:
