How do you convert your Website into a mobile phone friendly Website? Is this something to be concerned about?

Mobile advertising is getting more successful at creating brand awareness and purchase intent, compared to traditional online advertising. Market research firm InsightExpress recently did a study that found mobile campaigns thru the 4th quarter of 2009 performed 4-1/2 to 5 times better than online ones for awareness, message association, brand favorability and purchase intent.

The survey also found that mobile campaigns overall led to a higher level of purchase intent than online ones in such key consumer categories as travel, auto, retail and technology.

The trick to making mobile advertising successful is finding a way to convert your website content for mobile devices so that everything on your site displays properly when viewed in a smaller screen.

Thankfully, there are several online services that will make the conversion process easier, and enable more visitors to be able to see your website on a mobile device. Here are a few third party solutions that you can try out:

>Mippin – This company provides a mobile publishing service named Mippin Maker, which allows you to convert your web site or blot into a mobile version for free.  Mippin also allows you to monetize your mobile site through advertisements from AdMob.  (www.mippin.com)
