How Will Your Business Be Seen in 2011?
A recent report highlighted the expected boom in sales of tablet computers, led at this stage by the Apple iPad. Among many other advancements, these devices are highly portable and provide a very immersive online browsing experience.
In terms of growth, it is estimated that the 15.7 million tablet computer sales worldwide in 2010 will increase to 43.6 million in 2011 and 81.3 million by 2012.
What does this mean for you? One outcome is that your website will be viewed in new ways! Users have the ability to access your site "on the go", no longer tied to a desktop or even laptop. Devices such as Apple's iPad even enable location services to determine the user's location as they move.
Will your site be as accessible on a tablet device as it is from a laptop? The iPad and iPhone for example do not allow viewing of Flash files, often seen in the form of an animated "intro" page to a website. This can leave gaping holes when viewing the site on-screen.
There may also be a great opportunity for your business in the ever-expanding mobile app market - a further means of promoting your business and expanding your accessibility to customers and prospects.
