Is your business missing out by not going mobile? And, why is going mobile important? Simple. Because your customers are already mobile on their smartphones and tablets. If you want to catch fish, you have to go where the fish are. If you want to catch customers and clients in cyberspace, you have to be mobile.
This may mean redoing your website so it is mobile-friendly, but it’s worth it for your customers. What are the advantages of a mobile site? Here are a few summarized from this article.
1. Mobile sites look better on smartphones.
Traditional sites are hard to navigate (and read) on mobile phones:
In a recent study, 38% of people leave a website because it was not developed specifically for mobile users. They complain that it was too hard to use and locate information.
2. Mobile devices are overtaking desktop users.
This trend will continue as tablets and smartphones become more affordable.
3. Mobile sites keep customers coming back.
If a customer does not like his mobile experience with your website, it is likely he will never return.
4. Mobile sites are less expensive to design.
This is because coding a mobile website has become simpler, and the basics of the site are abbreviated for mobile ease-of-use.
5. Mobile sites increase traffic.
You can expect as much as 13% in increased traffic.
6. When you go mobile. . . .
Your customers will recognize that you are thinking about them and care about their experience.
7. Be the leader in your area.
Just as brick-and-mortar businesses have been slow to get online, some that are already online have been slow to convert to mobile. Be the leader in your area and be the one that customers search.
