  1. Hello, Sasi.
    You are absolutely right, mobile marketing is the biggest trend right now. But why do you speak of mobile websites? Your site should have long been mobile-friendly. Now it is all about apps. Look at the statistics – people spend much more time on apps than on mobile browsers. It is better to put all your efforts to developing a mobile app. Compared to a responsive website, mobile app has more advantages – it opens a new channel for sales, provides more marketing opportunities and attracts new customers, you can read more here.
    All the tips you make are totally applicable to a mobile app. I would also add thatvoice recognition will be a huge hit next year, so you’d probably think of building this feature into your app right now, until everyone has it. Another thing is native ads and native video, you can read about ithere. Facebook was one of the first to implement it. It is a whole new step in advertising, because native content looks so relevant that the users do not even realize it is ads.
