Mobile Website Design – a Growing Trend with Good Reason
Did you know that soon more people will be accessing the internet from mobile websites than from desktop or laptop computers? If you want a jump on all these new customers, you’ll need a mobile website design for your business. Even now, there are nearly 5 times as many mobile phones than laptops and computers combined. In fact, recent statistics show that there are over 5.3 billion (yes-billion) mobile subscribers – about 77% of the world’s population! Is your business missing out on this huge source of untapped leads?
Mobile Websites Usability
Have you tried looking at most websites on a mobile phone? Even with a magnifying glass and cell phone zoom capabilities, most websites are nearly impossible to read and understand, making users immediately go somewhere else (likely to your competitor who has a well-functioning mobile website design). Websites that have not been optimized for mobile phones also take longer to load on the small devices, giving your users a chance to become impatient and go elsewhere for information. You should absolutely keep your regular company website for users on desktop and laptop computers, but by not taking advantage of the usability mobile websites bring, your business is really missing out on a huge segment of your new customer pool.
Why Do I Need a Mobile Website Design for My Business?
There is one simple answer to this question: Because more and more people are utilizing their mobile phones to find local businesses and services. So many people today are used to accessing information via their phones using mobile websites when out and about. Out running errands or shopping? Jump on your mobile phone to find out where’s a good place to have lunch. Did your car just die in traffic? Find a tow truck using the internet on your mobile phone. Having a busy day running around meeting with clients and want to see if you can slip in to a salon for a haircut? Mobile website design to the rescue again.
Can you see the untapped market here? Using QR Codes linked to your mobile website can get information to users on the spot. Link your QR Code to your real estate listing, lunch menu, product in your store, sign up for a free consultation or discount or even link it directly to your text message advertising.
Not only are people searching for mobile websites using their phones and finding them using QR Codes, these consumers have much higher intent to buy than those sitting at a desk surfing the web. Mobile website users are generally looking to buy right now. They are looking for good mobile websites for local businesses that provide needed information, a general overview, any specials, store hours and a map to the exact location. A good mobile website design will provide this for your customers, turning them into repeat visitors.
- Unlike desktop and laptop searches, mobile phone users are primarily looking for phone, contact and address information so they can find your business
- Your visitors will not stay on your website if it’s hard to see
- A mobile website design will get your business indexed in mobile search engines
- Mobile websites make it easier for your potential buyers to take action
- 95% of current websites do not render correctly on mobile devices
- Your current website loads very slowly on mobile phones and devices
Knowing all this information, you can really see how it makes sense to have a good mobile website design for your potential customers, making it easier for them to both find and buy from you. Buyers are more likely to do business with you because you will offer exactly what they want when they need it, and the information will be easy to read and use right away – bringing them straight to your door.
