Why do we need Mobile-Friendly Websites? The latest statistics are truly staggering. There are currently more than 5 Billion mobile phones in use worldwide, and about one billion of these are capable of connecting to the internet.
In fact, there are more internet-connected mobile devices than there are desktop and laptops combined.
Because the use of mobile devices is steadily rising, it’s important that every business considers building a mobile-friendly website. Those that don’t, risk losing business to those that do… it’s just that simple. In fact Google themselves are encouraging all businesses to go mobile and offered a certain amount of free mobile-friendly websites in Alabama, USA in 2011 to kick-start the initiative.
While all businesses could benefit by having a mobile-friendly website, some business types will currently benefit more than others. However, it is anticipated that by 2014 the use of mobile devices for searching will overtake desktop searches so all organizations should consider including a mobile version of their website. If your business offers any sort of mobile service, emergency services, or simply appeals to those “on-the-go,” you fit the category of needing to do something about it now!
It would be impossible for me to list the business types I think would benefit most, but I will give you some examples of those who should have mobile-friendly websites right now:
- General Practitioner
- Equipment Hire
- Dentists and Orthodontists
- Beauty Parlours
- Insurance Brokers
- Removal Companies and many more…………….
As you can see, there are a lot of categories which fit the scenario where someone might often use a mobile device to look for a business. An added benefit is that most are looking to do business right away, not sometime in the future.
If mobile-friendly websites are easy to find, attractive, easy to navigate, optimized and offer essential business information immediately to the viewer, then the certain result will be new customers for those businesses!
