When the internet first started growing, it was important for your business to have a website so that it would be found by potential customers. While that is still important, today more and more people are using their smartphones to access the internet. That means that if you have a website that does not work well on a mobile device, you may be losing customers. iPrescott Business Solutions would like to discuss why it is important for your Prescott business website to be mobile friendly.
Increased sales – Almost 60% of the population accesses the internet via a mobile device. By having a mobile-friendly website, you will have more opportunities to make sales. More people will be accessing your website since it can be done on either a desktop computer or a mobile device.
Higher Ranking on Google – Part of the analytics used by Google actually includes whether or not a site is mobile friendly. Those that are mobile friendly tend to get a higher ranking, giving your site more opportunity to appear on the first couple of search results pages.
Continuity – A mobile-friendly website, from a customer point of view, is a website that works the same regardless of the device used. A seamless experience can greatly reduce customer frustration.
Customer Demand – In today’s busy lifestyle, consumers want convenience. If they are in need of a product and are not sitting at a desk, they will grab their smartphone or tablet and expect their search to be the same as on a computer. If they click your website and it does not work on their mobile device, you may have lost a customer.
Studies show that over 70% of mobile users are frustrated by the amount of pinching, zooming, sliding that needs to take place to view most websites being displayed today. Not having a website that is mobile friendly is a major business risk and one that should be avoided. Your website could be the future of your business. Don’t jeopardize it by not being mobile friendly.
