Do We Need Mobile-Friendly Photography Websites?

I was shocked to discover recently that 2.5% of the visitors passing through GlobalEye & OzImages are using mobile phones.

That's over 500 hundred people a month, trying to view a stock photo library website on a 2 inch phone screen!

To be honest, we'd looked at the idea of setting up a mobile version of our website a couple of years back, but we pretty much decided it wasn't necessary ... surely anyone serious about searching for photos would do it on the proper website?

I'm sure most photographers with their own websites have thought much the same thing. Well that might have been the case in the past, but it's clear now that things have changed.

2.5% and growing tells me it's time to start exploring the options and making sure were offering these visitors what they need. Fast.

So I just got together with a friend to put together a simple system to let any photographer set up a mobile-friendly website in just a few minutes.

There's no programming or HTML knowledge required, and we take you through the process step by step. Everything is hosted on our server, and we even show you how to detect when your desktop website visitors are using mobile devices, and automatically redirect them to your mobile site.

If you have a have a website of your own, I really encourage you to look this over sooner rather than later. I think it's something we're all going to need before too long, but even more importantly, I think this offers enormous opportunity to those photographers who get in early.

There's a free report there you can grab as well: Creating Effective Mobile Websites. We wrote it just for photographers and even if you decide against setting up your own mobile website just yet, it will save you a bit of leg-work later on.
