Did you know that, by next year, MORE people globally are expected to access the Internet VIA A MOBILE device than a desktop computer?
Did you know that 66% access the Internet on their smartphones at least once a day?
And did you know that, on average, people spend more than 2.5 HOURS a day interacting with web content on their mobile?
Mobile is exploding and it changes everything.
It changes the way customers interact with your site, It changes the way they engage with your email, and it fundamentally changes the way they do business.
Let me put it in another way - if your website is not optimized for mobile devices, you are MISSING OUT. Big time.
Still not convinced?
Did you know that over 60% of mobile usage from Facebook and Twitter is coming from mobile…? and that over 40% of all email opens are coming from a mobile device?
That means that if you are sending traffic from one of these channels to a non mobile-friendly website, you are setting your customers up for a poor experience.
It has been found that almost half of mobile users are unlikely to return to a site if it didn’t work properly during their last visit.
Not only that, The majority of them will not even wait more than 5 seconds for a page to load on their mobile device before abandoning the site.
You see, whether you like it or not, your audience is going to be consuming your content from a phone or a tablet.
This is why mobilizing your website is super important.
A mobilized site allows the viewer to read and navigate content on a small screen with ease; it allows your audience to interact with your business on any device they choose; And ultimately, it allows you to connect with your audience while they are on-the-go.
With so many benefits, it's no wonder that so many business owners are mobilizing their sites.
Now, what about you?
Will you ignore the trend or will you act?
I've been designing websites that are beautiful, professional and easy to use since 1999 but lately I've been specializing in designing mobile friendly sites with responsive layouts.
If you are wondering what a 'Responsive layout' is all about, below are two examples of sites I recently designed.
Check out these sites on both a desktop and a mobile device, and see how the screen layout is adjusted based on the device resolution.
