According to numerous reports, individuals in the United States alone will spend in excess of $40 billion on mobile marketing advertisements in 2017. In 2016, 53% of all internet use was done through mobile devices and that mobile ad spending greatly exceeded desktop ad spending.

According to these same studies, it is estimated that – by the end of the year of 2017 – approximately 75% of all of the consumption of online content will be through mobile devices.

If you own, operate, or manage a website and/or an online business, learn as much as you possibly can about mobile marketing as that knowledge will – ultimately – lead to your business success on the World Wide Web.

Mobile Marketing in 2017

Mobile Marketing in 2017

Always Connected

We reside in a world where consumers are always connected to the internet. Internet users crave instant gratification. In fact, they have come to expect it. Retailers and website owners have to re-evaluate the basic and traditional marketing techniques that have been utilized in the past to ensure that they correspond with the expectations of the average internet user.

Instead of simply purchasing from a broadcasting of a product and/or service, retailers and website owners have an obligation to provide the most comprehensive content possible pertaining to their products and services. Internet users have plenty of time to research that in which they are interested.

Online site owners and retailers must push to make sure that the necessary content is available to achieve the success that they desire in the year of 2017.

Responsive Design

The next mobile marketing trend of 2017 will be responsive design. Actually, this has been a large trend over the past year or so. Companies and brands that elect to take their merchandise, content, and/or services online must construct a website that will respond to the electronic device that the internet user is using to access that site.

In other words, responsive design must be used so that all of the site content may be viewed on tablets, smartphones, desktops, and a multitude of other electronic, internet-accessible devices.

Life Improvement

The final mobile trend that we will cover for 2017 in this brief guide is life improvement. Advertisers must show consumers how their products and services will improve their lives. In the past, it was acceptable to outline all of the features associated with a product and/or service. Consumers are SO past this. Today, they want to know how a product and/or service will benefit them or improve their quality of life. If you want to succeed, you must ensure that you incorporate this into your marketing regimen.

For assistance with your mobile marketing 2017 campaign, we here at Brick Road Media can help! We offer individual business packages that come with social media advertising, website development and programming, as well as high-quality content creation.

For more information on all of the ways that we can help you reach the success that you desire, simply call us today at:

Why Responsive Design Important for Your Business Website

Mobile technology is becoming increasingly popular – not by the year, not by the month, and not by the day; its popularity is growing by the minute. Nearly everywhere you look, you will see individuals utilizing laptop computers, tablets, digital reading devices, and smartphones. Internet users are all about instant gratification.

Today, these individuals have the unique ability to surf the internet, check their email, engage in online shopping, actively participate in social media, play games, and a multitude of other activities in virtually any location, at any time, and in any way that they desire.

If you have a business website, it is imperative that you know and understand this simple fact – your visitors utilize a host of accessories to visit your site; as a result, your website should incorporate a responsive design theme.

What is Responsive Design?

responsive design devicesResponsive web design is a specific approach that outlines that the development and overall design of a website should be immediately adaptable to the behavior and environment in which an internet user accesses that website.

In simple terms, the design of the site should immediately respond to the size of the screen that the internet user has, the platform in which the internet user is accessing the website, and the general orientation associated with the utilization of that website.

Responsive design themes on business websites utilize CSS media-based queries in an intelligent manner in order to accommodate users in terms of screen resolution, the size of the images that are present on the device being used, as well as the scripting abilities.

This is a type of design that automatically responds to each device used to access the site and does not require additional programming and development for each technological-based electronic gadget that comes into existence.

The Advantages

There are numerous advantages associated with responsive design themes on a business website. First and foremost, this reduces the expenses of development and design immensely.

Secondly, everyone who accesses the website will be able to easily view the content contained on that site.

Finally, it enhances credibility and builds the brand. If you have a business website, responsive designed themes are an essential component to your overall success.

If you do not have this type of design, we here at Brick Road Media can assist you!

Simply give us a call today and we can start helping you achieve the success that you desire as quickly as tomorrow:
