Ahhhh! The BBC. Shining bastion of purity in a sea of commercial malaise. Nothing can spoil its lustre.

Regardless, what's this advert like? The text is small and indistinct. The purpose of the message is rather vague. There's no allure. Just a static banner. How very 1996. Well, gentle reader, as you know from previous excursions, I am prepared to click where no ordinary mortal would.

For those of you with poor eyesight, Barclays have pointed me straight at the desktop version of their website. There is no mobile friendly site in view. Not even a link to say "On a mobile? Click here."
What To Do
- Make your advert interesting.
- Make your site mobile friendly - or at least suitable for your target demographic's handset
Is it really that hard?
