It is obvious we are in the midst of a Mobile Migration. If the pictures (below – and look closely) don’t convince you, Cisco’s latest stats on mobile growth certainly will. Now that we are all “believers,” the next step is to know how it is affecting us and our online fundraising.

    I definitely believe mobile is strengthening on the horizon. When I look at the Google Analytics for http://www.pancan.org, I am blown away at the mobile traffic statistics and even traffic from iPads and tablets. I am glad Kintera offers a mobile version of the donation page of Kintera Thon sites. Gives us the opportunity to create QR codes that direct people to the mobile version of a donation page for a Kintera Thon event!
