Every business needs a mobile version of their website. With 83% of the population owning a phone, and with over 55% of those phones being smartphones, cell phones are being used more and more to browse the web on the go.

If you are trying to make money from a blog or a website as a hobbyist or as an entrepreneur, then you will be at a rather large disadvantage compared to many of the other blogs out there. You see the problem is that you are just one person – and while you might be very talented and very dedicated, you will be going up against blogs and websites run by whole professional teams. If you want to make a gaming website for instance, then you will have to go up against IGN which has offices full of people uploading numerous posts daily, teams of web designers with professional degrees and the best software, and support from the games industry as well.

These conversions mean sales at some point.
