In 2019 It Is Vital Your Website Be Mobile Friendly

On average, people are spending 5 hours on their smartphones a day. And no, it’s not all just YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat (though there is lots of that). More than half of smartphone users have discovered a new company or product when searching on their smartphones.

Having a mobile-friendly website in 2019 isn’t just a good idea – it’s imperative. These are the top reasons why you NEED to make sure your site is mobile friendly in 2019:

Your Customers are Using Mobile Devices

The number 1 most important reason you need a responsive website is that your customers are using their mobile. 57% of all web traffic is done on mobile devices.  More than half of your customers are checking you out from their smartphones. What kind of experience are you giving them?

Build Trust

Here’s that same percentage again. 57% of online users say they won’t recommend a business with a poorly designed mobile website.

Yes. It’s that big of a deal to have a mobile-friendly website. It’s silly to risk losing customers when it is something that can so easily be fixed. 

Be Competitive

If having a responsive website for mobile devices isn’t a top priority for you, beware. Your top competitors have probably already made sure that their site is mobile friendly.  Which business do you think customers will choose when browsing from their smartphone?

Increase Your Visibility

One of the best things about having a mobile-friendly website is that you can reach a wider audience. Responsive websites make online sharing simple and so your web visitors are more likely to share on their social platforms.

Plus, mobile-friendliness is a ranking symbol on Google. That means that mobile-friendly websites appear higher in search results.  This should grab your attention immediatley.  Having a mobile friendly site automatically helps you rank higher in Google, this is an easy way to improve your organic search rankings.

Keep Their Attention

In our instant, digital age, people now have a shorter attention spans.  Sad but true. So, don’t lose a large chunk of potential customers. Make your website responsive.

One aspect of a mobile-friendly website is that it loads quickly. More than half of mobile web visitors will leave your site if it takes more than 3 seconds to load.  If your page takes too long to load potential customers will simply click off your page and move on to the next one.  Don't let that happen!

Make it Easy for Customers

The more convenient it is for customers to reach you, the more likely they are to do it. Having a mobile-friendly website means that your phone number is easy to find and is clickable.  All your customers have to do is click and the phone will start ringing.  Remember what we said earlier about our attention span, if you make it easy for customers: it takes out the guess work. This is better for your customers and for you because it will likely lead to a sale.
