Even the giants of American marketing sometimes fall short in the most basic ways, by making sites that entirely fail to appear on mobile devices.

Can anything be sadder than pouring buckets of money into a high-profile campaign, only to have it not appear? All that money created irritation, not excitement.
Tip: Make sure your website displays on all market-leading phones or tablets!
