If you care how your website looks on a mobile phone you’re more than likely to have already launched a mobile friendly version of your website. Yes? If the answer is no, we suggest you do!
So, what is a mobile friendly website? A mobile friendly website is either a concentrated version of your main website, built as a separate site or a responsive website, which will adjust the size and position of content to provide an ‘accessible user experience’ for users of mobile devices. Making sure your website is readable on a phone isn’t something you should ignore. If your site is less functional when viewed on a phone versus a PC or laptop, most users will simply leave the site. In short, if your website isn’t mobile friendly you’re preventing potential customers from easily navigating your site.
Accessing the web with a mobile phone is usual practice these days. Last week I read that ‘by 2014 mobile internet should take over desktop internet usage’. In a very short space of time, mobile has become an necessity. 71% of 16-24 year olds are now accessing the internet via a mobile phone. Things like apps, news, social media, e-mail, and downloading music are commonplace, therefore making your website mobile friendly is essential. Lots of consumer-focused companies have already realised how valuable mobile is, most have armed themselves with a mobile friendly version of their ‘main’ website.
