In recent years there has been a huge growth in the number of people using mobile devices to access the internet. In 2015, an Ofcom report confirmed that Smartphones had overtaken laptops as the most popular device for getting online. A third of internet users see their smartphone as the most important device for going online, compared to 30% who still use their laptop.This growth is set to continue and businesses who don't offer a mobile version of their site, could lose out on a huge stream of potential visitors. The following statistics should make you pause for thought....

In addition, mobile searches have grown by 400% since 2010 and in 2012 there was an 81% growth of smartphone usage. It is clear that user behaviour has changed and it is therefore important to take the time to consider the impact this will have on your business.

What is a Mobile Website?

A mobile site is basically a simplified version of a full site, specifically created to provide the best viewing and user experience on a mobile device. This implies ease of use, which means simplified navigation and large buttons, as fingers (especially thumbs) are used to operate. Mobile users are normally looking for information quickly, as they fit in their searching around their normal day to day activities.  For local businesses, the important information would be location, opening times and contact information. In the mobile world, such things as phone numbers and email should be a button click away. So for example, on a mobile site you should be able to click on a phone icon and the smartphone automatically goes into phone mode and has the number already entered.

Why should I have a mobile website?

A site designed to be viewed on a PC comes across as being not fit for purpose in the mobile environment. It is likely to take a relatively long time to load. The other thing is that the type on the page is pretty small, meaning that it will take a lot of zooming and pinching to access the information you want and to navigate the site. The issue then is whether your visitor gets frustrated and decides to look elsewhere. According to a recent survey from Compuware, 40% of users have turned to a competitor's site after a bad mobile experience.

Mobile devices are not only here to stay, there will continue to be rapid growth in their usage and as a result more people will be viewing websites with these devices. If your business does not have this capability, you could be losing business.
