Justin Meadows is back on this episode, this time sharing with us his recommendations to give optimum user experience when prospects are on their mobile phones. More and more people are on mobile phones because of easy access and faster speed. Most are multi-tasking in between errands and do not have time to spend on a content, as when they are in front of the desktop. With this trend, it is important for website designers to consider first doing the mobile version rather than trying to squish the nice desktop design they made to the tiny little screen of mobile phones.
