Mobilegeddon isn’t the only reason for having a mobile friendly website

Besides the whole Google Mobilegeddon thing, you might think that having a mobile website isn’t a priority for your business right now. You might assume that if a customer wants to buy from you, they will just come down to your business and speak to your sales staff. You might even think that customers would prefer to simply call you from their mobile, not browse websites.

But sadly, you’re deeply misinformed.

The fact is, 95% of smartphone users have searched for local information. 61% of users call a business after searching. 59% of them visit the local business in person as a result. 90% of these people act within 24hrs.

People are using their mobiles more than ever to research all kinds of products and services, on a local level.

It doesn’t matter you sell, or who you sell it to.

Your business is being searching online, from mobile phones. If they find your website and they can’t read it properly, then they will leave.

And boy, do they leave with a bitter taste in their mouths.

According to a study by Compuware, 57% of people would not recommend a business with a bad mobile website. 40% of people have turned to a competitor’s site after a bad mobile experience. 23% of adults have cursed at their phones when a site doesn’t work on their mobile device.
