Yes, you also need a mobile version of your website. Mobile isn’t coming, it’s here. The numbers are staggering, 3.6 billion people around the world use mobile devices. 500,000 android devises are activated every day and as of December 2011 50% of Americans had a smartphone. Mobile is growing faster than any technology before. And perhaps most importantly, mobile sites impact sales:
- 70% of mobile users have compared products prices on their phones
- 65% have read product reviews on their phones
- 50% of mobile searches lead to purchase
Having a mobile version of your website ensures your customers have an experience that is optimal for the device they are using. It means that your website is formatted for a smaller screen and ideally takes advantage of the touch screen technology (touch to call for example) and geolocation tools that quickly take users to tools like Google Maps. This kind of user experience just may be the differentiating factor that leads a potential customer to call, or stop in to, your business vs. your competition’s.
- 95% of smartphone users have searched for local information
- 61% of users call a business after searching and 59% visit the location
- 90% of these people act within 24 hours
