Do I Need a Mobile Website?
Mobile websites are now the expected standard.
Once upon a time, the basic business website was the hot new thing that not every business had, but that every business needed to have if they wanted to stay relevant. However, now that everyone who’s anyone has a website, progress is all about another question: “Do you have a mobile website yet?”
As of 2013, statistics show that 91% of all people on planet earth own a cell phone and that 56 percent— over half the population—own a Smartphone. It’s further estimated that about half of the world’s population relies on their cell phone, tablet, or other mobile device as their primary method of accessing the Internet. That said, if you haven’t yet built a mobile website for your small business, it’s time to get cracking if you don’t want to be yesterday’s news within the next few years.
Since so many people are accessing company websites on the go these days, they need access to websites that load quickly and display information in a way that’s mobile friendly. If they can’t get what they need from you, then they won’t hesitate to go running to your competition instead. Mobile apps for SmartPhones and tablets are also good ideas to consider for this reason, as studies have shown that people are much more likely to become and remain loyal customers of businesses that have apps.
What’s more, people are relying on the internet more and more each day to help them make real-life decisions while they’re away from home, they’re not just browsing from their living room couch anymore. They could be out on the streets planning an impromptu visit, a shopping trip, or an itinerary. A sleek, to-the-point mobile site for small businesses could mean an upswing in new and spontaneous business, both locally and from out of town.
