Why the need for a responsive website?
As more and more of us use our mobiles and tablets to source our information on the Internet these days, it has never been so important to ensure your website can be easily viewed and read on all types of devices no matter how big or small. It has been reported that in 2015 mobile usage will outweigh desktop usage.
A mobile friendly website is now considered a “must have” for any forward thinking company.
Did you know?
It is a fact that 65% of people viewing a site on a mobile are likely to take up a service immediately as opposed to only 35% viewing the same site on a desktop.
Making your customers pinch and zoom their way around a desktop site on a mobile device is like hanging a “closed for business” sign on your door.
- 70% of mobile searches lead to an action within the hour.
- 40% of people will choose a different search result if the first is not mobile friendly.
- 62% of companies that designed a website specifically for mobile had increased sales.
- 45% of users ages 18-29 use their smartphones for searches every day.
Google have now altered how they rank a website. If your site is not mobile friendly then watch how your site ranking declines over the next few months.
