Linking phone numbers in your website

With lots of people using increasingly larger phones to access websites here’s a web design tip for you to make it easier for them to get in contact with you.

Many of you will know that if you place a link in your website to mail:webdesign@websanity.co.uk that clicking on that link it will open your mail program with webdesign@websanity.co.uk in the email ‘to’ field. Well if you link to tel:01480374324 then when you click on the link on a mobile phone it will give you the option to dial that number directly.

Such a seemingly simple change makes it far easier for people to contact you, after all, the alternative for them is to write the phone number down and then call it, which is potentially tricky when you are ‘mobile’!
