I know that you know that your website needs to be mobile right? And I’m sure you’ve already optimized your site for mobile right…riiiight? Then I’m sure you already know that smartphones are quickly becoming the preferred devices for browsing, sharing, & buying, yes?
Your customers are mobile and you should be to. Here’s why:
1. Cut down on development time and costs
Responsive sites work on a single URL. There’s no need to have a desktop site and a second mobile site developed. Not anymore. Save big on a single website that works across all devices and just say no to wasted time and money on updating 2 sites. Score!
2. Everyone is mobile
Over 20% of Google searches are performed on a mobile device. Your customers are searching for your services on the go at all hours of the day and not just on their desktops. Most customers are switching between their laptop, cell, and tablet all at once and throughout the day. Cut the clutter and greet them with a mobile friendly site that displays well on all their devices.
3. People like to share on mobile.
55% of social media consumption happens on a mobile device. So, if you have a social media strategy in place then you better have a mobile site to compliment it. If you are sharing content to your social networks and through your blog, be sure to send your readers to a mobile friendly site to keep the conversation going.
4. Google says so
Google prefers mobile friendly and responsive design ranks these higher than non-mobile sites. Take a look at these site results after their 2015 algorithm change. The mobile friendly sites faired well, while the others are losing ground.
5. Let your viewers stay awhile
Responsive site design flows from one device to another and offer a seamless and pleasant experience. This decreases bounce rates and keeps viewers on your site longer.
6. Show you care
48% of users said that if a site didn’t work well on their smartphone, they felt like the company didn’t care about their business. Ouch! Show that you care and take pride in your business and service. Ensure that your customers are getting the royal treatment on all fronts.
7. Increase your bottom line
67% of users are more likely to make a purchase with a smartphone on a mobile friendly site. Remember, most users don’t purchase the first time they see your ad or hear of your service. They may wait awhile, discuss it with the wife or hubs, and buy at a later time when convenient for them, and most of the time it will be from their mobile device.
8. There’s no time to waste
The best time to get online was yesterday, the next best time is right now. If you’re not online, then you’re missing out on business…big time! Join the online cocktail party, get visible, and start sharing your services with a mobile friendly site design.
