Mobilegeddon

Mobilegeddon is fast approaching!

Mobilegeddon is now mere days away. By now, you might be thinking about what you can do to ensure you can offer your website visitors a mobile-friendly website. So, what are your options? We’ve developed three that will ensure your website delivers a superior user experience on mobile, tablet, and desktop devices.

Each option comes with its own pros and cons, but all pass Google’s mobile-friendly test. Get in touch with us to find out which option is best for your website!

Option 1

Convert your current
website to responsive

Pros

  • No more Google Mobilegeddon worries!
  • Your site will not be affected by the Google update
  • If you like your existing website you can keep it as is
  • Your site will be updated to work on all screen sizes
  • A responsive design is built on one code base

Cons

  • Some functionality may not work on some devices since it’s built responsively, not mobile-optimised
  • Some layout elements may not look perfect on mobile devices, as the original site was not designed responsively
  • Some of your existing content may not automatically look good, and therefore may need to be optimised
  • Can be costly depending on the size and complexity of thesite

The cost for converting your existing website to responsive starts from $950.

Option 2

Go mobile/tablet specific

Pros

  • No more Google Mobilegeddon worries!
  • Your site will not be affected by the Google update
  • If you like your existing website you can keep the desktop version as it is now
  • A mobile and tablet version will provide cool functionality specifically for those devices - like fly out menus
  • This will be lighter and speedier as it will not contain excessive imagery and design elements
  • Mobile sites are optimised exclusively for mobile and tablet devices

Cons

  • You’ll have desktop and mobile / tablet design elements, so in some cases, if you need to change the site, you may have to change two things rather than one
  • The user experience between mobile and desktop devices may not be 100% consistent

The cost for a mobile- and tablet-specific website starts from $950.

Option 3

Move your website to a
new, responsive template

Pros

  • No more Google Mobilegeddon worries!
  • Your site will not be affected by the Google update
  • You have the opportunity to update your website with a whole new design
  • Move to a fully tested and responsive template that is designed and built by iformat
  • Benefit from a new, modern template with the best mobile-optimised structure
  • One website accommodates all screen sizes
  • Thoroughly checked and tested on desktop and mobile devices

Cons

  • This is a new site build - so it can be more expensive than fixing what you have
  • We will take an existing template and reskin to match your design
  • Longer delivery time

The cost to move your website to one of iformat’s responsive template starts from $1,500.
