When preparing to go mobile: Simplify!

You will need to consider eliminating many of these graphic elements to effectively optimize your mobile website for use on a mobile device.
Decide which core navigation or menu items you want to keep. More than likely if you have a site with top navigation, side navigation and footer navigation, you will need to drastically trim these items. However, if you only have 5-7 items that are essential to your business, this process might be an easier step.
You may need to reduce the amount of design variations and use of colors for the mobile site. Branding is a must, but must be fine tuned when it comes to mobile web design. The site design must maintain the recognized brand and still offer the simplicity of a mobile website.
