I have a website, so it can be viewed on a smartphone – right!
Well, yeah, but unless you have fingers like a needle, don’t mind pinching, zooming or scrolling, no-one will hang around because they can’t read the content, navigate through the tabs or interact with your web pages. Have a contact form – drop downs – don’t even go there!
- More people (around 59% in Australia) will access the Internet through a smartphone over a PC.
- 3 out of 5 mobile users that visit your website will leave immediately if it is not mobile ready or responsive.
- Over 80% of Australian businesses do not provide mobile traffic with a user-friendly experience.
- She’ll not be right! Mobile users are impatient.
Should I switch to a mobile ready website?
Absolutely. That way you can have one website that caters for all your website traffic on any device. And because it’s built on a fluid, flexible grid the responsive layout re-sizes and re-orientates your desktop site for mobiles of any screen resolution.
But I have a shopping cart website.
Did I say absolutely, sorry I meant immediately. The stats are the same regardless and a consumer-purchasing proposition must be a painless process. Non-responsive websites make purchasing products a bit of a nightmare – you may have experienced this yourself?
To answer your question, yes, your mobile website can also handle shopping carts – cool!
