A mobile-friendly website is a website that is designed to display properly on mobile devices, phones and tablets.
If you have ever accessed web pages from a smart phone or tablet, you may have noticed that some websites are difficult to navigate, visually unappealing, and take a ridiculous amount of time to load on your device, while on your desktop or laptop computer they work just fine.
This is because these sites have not been designed or optimized for mobile viewing!
Over 60% of the world’s 6 billion mobile phone owners have smart phones, and more than 45% of those smartphone owners say that they use their phone more than a laptop or desktop computer when searching for products and services.
What does this mean for you as a business owner with a website?
It means that if your website is not responsive or “mobile-friendly”, you could be losing business to your competitors who have sites that are more easily navigable for mobile phone users.
A mobile version can be created from your existing website, or you could have a brand new responsive website designed for you. Responsive Web Design is an approach whereby a web developer creates a web page or website that “responds to” or re-sizes itself depending on the type of device it is being viewed on. That could be an over sized desktop computer monitor, a laptop, a 10-inch tablet, a 7-inch tablet, or a 4-inch smartphone screen.
In other words, with a responsive website design, you don’t have to have worry about having different websites for various devices or making sure that your site displays and functions properly on a mobile device.
With so many people using smart phones these days, it has become necessary for the success of your business to have a website that is optimized for mobile viewing.
