A few years ago not many
businesses had a website. Nowadays everybody has a website.
These days not many businesses have a WAP SITE*, but
soon everyone will have one ***.
Every business that launches an SMS
campaign should have a mobile enabled website (wapsite)
otherwise the recipients will not be able to access
the website link in the message effectively.
Mobile internet is developing extremely
fast and most cell phones are WAP enabled. Most teenagers
access the web from their cellphones and the adults
are following suit. Why are they using cell phones to
access the internet?
Because it is a lot cheaper** than traditional
internet access, it is even more mobile (and cheaper)
than a notebook computer, it is always on and it is
available everywhere where there is cellphone reception.
It is forecasted that the mobile internet will become
even bigger than the traditional internet.
Sentido can help you to develop your
company's wapsite, whether it is a simple one or a fully
intergrated e-commerce enabled wapsite.
It is important to know that cell phones
have different web browsers, the older versions requiring
a different type of wap site (mobi site). The newer
cellphones can sometimes open normal html websites albeit
at a slow pace. Our technology takes all this into account
to ensure that the site visitors have a pleasant, constructive
and fast visit to your mobi site!
