Preparing Your Brand for the Mobile Web Experience
Molecular's Evan Gerber to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Oct. 20-22, in San Jose, CA

As the mobile Web matures, we see more and more people running around airports with their mobile devices in hand, searching for hotel rooms, reading the news, or just playing video games. People are more connected with their mobile phone today than any other electronic device they use. What was once a nice-to-have is now the norm, and is quickly becoming an integral part of our culture and society. But how do you connect with users through mobile web sites and create exceptional experiences that are both functional and captivating?

During 2007, Molecular conducted a unique research project which sought to explore, analyze, and understand how users are interacting with the mobile Web. More specifically, this exercise looked to understand what users expect from their applications, identify common usability mistakes, and recognize emerging design patterns in the mobile Internet. This presentation will share some of Molecular’s findings, and discuss the impact for companies seeking to promote their brand on the mobile Web. Usability expert Evan Gerber will provide insight on what these learnings mean for the future of the mobile Web and how you can apply it your business and improve you mobile marketing success.

Attendees will learn:

  • What are the common weaknesses of the mobile interface, and how to avoid them
  • Best practices for creating an engaging and memorable interface on handheld devices
  • Critical differences between the mobile Web and traditional Web experiences
  • Common problems inherent in current mobile design
  • How users perform tasks on handheld devices
