How to Create A Mobile Friendly Website?
Google recently reminded everyone about the power of having a mobile website. In fact, Google predicted that 60% of people who go to your website, will leave if it’s not mobile friendly. Even when people like your business, they’re still likely to stop doing business with you if your website is not mobile friendly. So, if you want more customers and more sales, ensure that you have a mobile ready website if you expect to succeed.
Getting your website redesigned for mobile phone viewers as well as internet viewers is not as hard as you think. The best approach is to hire a web designer who understands mobile web design and pay to have it done. Although there will be upfront costs, the mobile website design will pay for itself with more customers. Websites are all about the experience you give a customer, and if you’re not mobile ready, they’re getting a bad experience and you’re losing potential business.
