How HTML5 Helps Marketers

Lately, there has been a lot of buzz about the term, HTML%, and what most marketers don’t realize is this is a tool that can aid them. HTML%, a browser-based programming language, is a tool that can be utilized to make more accessible and interactive content that mirrors an app with its usability and mobile-friendliness. HTML5 has grown exponentially, and the benefits that it offers marketers are now becoming clearer than ever.


• 49% of mobile users in the United States have reported that they prefer using a browser over apps.
• 48% of developers currently use HTML5. This makes it easier to cater to all devices and increases accessibility as well. In addition, HTML5 makes websites become more searchable and in the end is more cost-efficient as well.

HTML5 in the Future

HTML5 was once just an idea but after 15 months is now reality. It will become a powerful and exponentially growing trend in the next few years. According to a survey , 79% of mobile app developers plan on using HTML% in the near future and it has been forecasted that by 2015, 80% of mobile apps will include HTML5 in some form.


Financial Times – After being fed up with having Apple included in their business model, The Financial Times resorted to shutting down its app and setting up its HTML5 web page instead. This decision helped the newspaper have more control over its applications, pricing, and subscribers.

Ford– Ford hired the Burrows Communications Agency to create a “Ford Showroom” application using HTML5. This allows Ford to reach a bigger audience across many platforms and save time by not having to develop for both Android and Apple devices.

Vimeo– Vimeo cleverly decided to use HTML5 for their awards show to have the performance of an app without the time delay that comes along with development. This decision allowed a standard link to work across all devices and saved Vimeo the precious amount of time and resources it takes to build an app.

As you can see HTML5 has proven to be a useful tool for marketing purposes by reaching across all kinds of platforms at a lower cost. HTML5 use will rapidly grow within the next few years and pretty soon will become a commonplace tool and term. Right now is a good opportunity for business owners to take advantage of this early stage and apply it to their business or organization.
