61% of People Prefer a Business With a Mobile Website
In the wake of Mobilegeddon, many business owners are asking themselves a very simple question. Just how important is a mobile website? The answer may surprise you, because it turns out that Google is not the only one who cares whether or not your site is mobile friendly. Your customers and potential customers care too.
The Numbers Don’t Lie. People Care About Mobile Websites
According to a 2013 BrightLocal survey of more than 900 mobile users, 61% admitted that they are more likely to contact a business with a mobile website. But that’s not all.
- 50% of mobile users prefer a mobile browser to apps.
- 38% of mobile users search at least once per month for local businesses.
- 38% of mobile users are impressed when a local business has a mobile website.
If your current website is not mobile-friendly, you might be missing out on potential business. And, as a business owner, that is just not something you can afford to have happen. So you have two options:
- Invest in a mobile website, or
- Opt for a responsive design/conversion.
What is Responsive Design?
The optimum mobile solution is responsive design.
Smartphones and tablets have advanced to the point where they can handle downloading full web pages instead of stripped-down ‘mobile’ versions of them. If sites are designed with full-size and tiny screens in mind, they can work in any browser, on any size screen. Take a look at this website, for example. Resize it. Try making it super skinny, then ultra-wide and everything in between. It looks good no matter what size it is, right? That’s responsive design. It ensures your website looks great no matter the device: desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
