To begin, if you don’t have a mobile version of your business website, your mobile visitor is forced to view the desktop version of your website on the small screen of their mobile device. This tends to lead to frustration and the visitor quickly leaves without finding what they were looking for.
Before we purchase anything these days, we like to know a little more about what we are thinking about buying. Generally we will search online to read any reviews or complaints that have been posted about the product or services in question. However, we know for any business to succeed it must ensure that it can provide information that it’s potential customers will want. Certainly in the last few years the importance of mobile websites for local businesses has grown quite substantially.
So, what are the reasons why you should have a mobile version of your business website and have it mobile friendly? Below, I take a look at some of these.
1) Year by year the number of people who are choosing to use the internet for information is growing by leaps and bounds. During the last ten years, there has been a huge rise in internet usage. As a matter of fact, in the USA alone, it grew an amazing 150% between 2000 and 2010.
2) Around 40% of all people who own a mobile phone today will go online and around half of these will actually be spending time online at least once each day.
3) The creating of a mobile website for your business is relatively inexpensive. Although, how they are designed is different from the way in which a traditional website will be designed because of the screen size and resolutions that need to be worked with. Plus, you will find that creating such a site doesn’t take up as much time.
4) Mobile websites allow businesses to advertise their products and services directly to mobile phone users who use their mobile phone to search for products and services at the instant they are needed.
