In the Wall Street Journal this week, Ed Nash said it’s now imperative to have a mobile web presence. He says the Web 3.0 party is already in full swing, so those who aren’t on mobile better get their dancing shoes on — it’s time to go mobile.
“With half of the total U.S. population already accessing the Web through smart phones and tablets, a mobile platform is a necessity.” —Ed Nash
Nash also says that to engage in the web-based world, you must be “broadly accessible and elegantly intuitive” — and your involvement in mobile web needs to happen quickly. Nash says he has heard from several big companies that they’re looking to implement mobile by 2014. That’s too late.
Very soon, mobile will be the primary way we access the web — and, in some places, it’s the only way people access the web. In the U.S., 25 percent of users access the Web exclusively through mobile devices. In Egypt, that number is 70 percent.
Just more evidence that the shift to mobile is here — this is the tipping point, and businesses need to go mobile ASAP. Luckily, there are intuitive tools available to make that easy.
