Mobile app example - ClearPoint Web SolutionsDo you have an iPhone, iPad, Blackberry or Android phone? Have you started using your phone or mobile device for everything from reading email, to getting directions, to paying for coffee?

Well so have I, and I’m seeing that the mobile revolution is here! Businesses are moving to mobile platforms and offering more access to coupons, special offers, payment options, and more – right from the convenience of your phone.

I’ve been taking a WordPress Experts Certification Course these past few months (one of the things that made the summer crazy and hectic for me, in addition to website projects) and through that, have learned about the upcoming Social Media Smartphone GPS Summit, coming up on October 5-7 in Orlando, FL. I’m very excited to take a break from my daily routine and learn more about helping businesses to be effective in this new mobile culture.

When scanned with your smartphone, QR Codes will direct you to a particular website page such as a coupon, menu, store hours, etc.

For example, does your website have a mobile version? Does it work well on a mobile device? My nieghborhood hardware store sent out a promotion in the mail which had a QR code on it for a special offer. Curious, I got out my iPhone and scanned the QR code, only to arrive at a website that was unreadable on my phone’s small screen! (Do you think I followed up on this offer? No, I did not.) Business owners, make sure this is not happening with your business. If you’re going to direct people to your website from a QR code or other promotion, make sure it is readable on a mobile device!

I am looking forward to the October training but it will be strange to be so close to Disneyworld without my kids. They still have never been!

(If you need help getting your website in shape for the mobile revolution, let me know.)

“I had a small business web site in need of a redesign and a friend of mine recommended Corinne. She was very professional and responsive to my requirements and design ideas. She was also very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend ClearPoint Web Solutions to anyone looking to create a business website.

ClearPoint Web Solutions is great to work with. They are extremely detail-oriented, affordable and go beyond the requirements. ClearPoint gives you a website that is functional, well-designed and eye-pleasing based on your needs. I'd definitely work with them again in future projects. Thank you, Corinne!
