Mini Me
With so many people viewing websites on the small screens of their mobile phones, the need to have a separate mobile version of your websites has become a necessity. By having a smaller mobile version is allows businesses to showcase their site in an easier to view and navigate way for small devices.

With larger, clearer navigation the mobile sites are much more user friendly and can be a great resource for sites that want user retention on their sites.
