You may have noticed our new design – and you may hate it – but this new design actually represents a complete shift in the future direction of our company.
First of all, the old design had lasted me for almost 3 years and I still have some emotional attachment to it. So I didn’t want to change themes just for the sake of changing themes. I wanted to make a leap forward.
Over the past few months I realized that I was in danger of getting left behind in terms of mobile technology. So I started to study more about designing websites for mobile devices, got myself an iPhone 4S, and tried to catch up.
Although there is way too much hype on mobile marketing, I do understand that it is THE future. As a result my blog is now 100% mobile-friendly.
If you are reading this through a mobile phone, you already know what I mean. If you are on a web browser on your computer, resize this screen as small as possible to see the changes.
Here’s how my blog looks like on my iPhone:
The focus here is not only about readability but also to get optin leads directly from mobile users. That’s why we have such a prominent optin form that works really well for mobile.
Using the awesome StudioPress ‘Generate’ WordPress theme, I have a ‘responsive’ blog design that will match your mobile phone and tablet devices.
And using the awesome WordPress app, I wrote this blog post completely from my iPhone!
So I did manage to catch up a little bit:)
But the bigger challenges lie just around the corner. By the end of this year I want to make all my websites mobile-compatible and even launch a native iOS / Android app for JomNiaga and LinkTrackr.
Imagine getting new sales notification on your mobile phone, or being able to scan and forward QR codes of your affiliate link to your friends!
The possibilities are endless. I may have been slow to figure out mobile marketing, but better late than never!
