GankIt.com Embraces “Mobile First” as Membership Swells
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GankIt.com (OTCQB: GANK) announces its mobile first initiative is underway to capture the burgeoning number of people accessing the Internet from mobile devices. eMarketer estimates that 73.4 percent of worldwide Internet users in 2013 accessed the Web from a mobile device. This is predicted to rise to over 79 percent in 2014 and reach over 90 percent in 2017.
“We recognized very quickly that mobile device access is the future of the Internet”
The company’s initiative will focus on broadening its existing website to make it responsive to mobile traffic as well as rolling out one or more auction applications. Gankit’s responsive website will display differently depending on the type of device used to access it, while the mobile apps will focus on speed and ease of use.
“We recognized very quickly that mobile device access is the future of the Internet,” said John Arnold, CEO of Gankit.com. He added, “Mobile is now Facebook’s biggest source of revenue, and we expect it to make a big splash for us.”
The focus on becoming a mobile first ecommerce site comes at a time when the business is forecasting torrid growth from its national marketing efforts. As previously announced last week, the company is completing post-production of its national commercial with an imminent rollout. Gankit.com is currently exploring opportunities on network affiliates such as ESPN, CNN and Fox News.
The commercial is part of a broader campaign highlighting the GankIt brand as an engaging, interactive shopping experience where members enjoy a fair and honest venue with excellent customer service. The site offers the latest electronics from Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and others in an e-commerce setting, alongside industry giants such as eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY) and Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN).
