Billions of people use smart phones and the number is on a staggering rise. This is one of the biggest reasons to outreach a bigger audience. Even though this may be one of the single most convincing reasons to modify your website to mobile friendly, we list out few more convincing points to look into that would help leverage your company’s presence on social media and personally to each and every smart phone user across the world.
The infographic about mobile apps downloaded in 2012, here merely gives some stats on the number of smart phone users across the globe.
Assuming you aren’t convinced about addressing the billions of smart phone users, let’s look into what Google is prioritizing.
Oops! Trouble is Google is reprimanding non-mobile friendly websites by pushing them on the second or the third page. Why?
Google is placing Mobile users first!
A demotion in the search engine by Google itself is one of the saddest things your company’s name deserves especially when you have placed in so much thought, effort and resource behind your business.
Thus ensuring that your site remain in accordance to mobile optimization guidelines is imperative. Google also very clearly reprimands those sites with slow responsive design, with a site speed penalty for mobiles. Clearly the search engine understands the utter frustration users face when the site takes more than 5-10 seconds to load. The end result often leads the user to cancel the site, leave and never return. Sounds painful, knowing that you have the power to change that.
Wouldn’t you want your website to be accessed to those billions of people consuming media differently? Assimilating all what they can access on the go? If you are able to reach into billions of smart phone users personally, does hat not ensure a rise in your company’s revenue?
With all of the reasons above we highly recommend that you upgrade and audit your website in accordance to Mobile friendly format to avert the users from abandoning your website and all it’s revolutionary services that can be mutually beneficial for them and for generating solid revenue for your company. Think smart, act now! Slight change may win more users to explore your brand name, win loyal customers and to guarantee they remain connected to you personally wherever they go through their smart phone.
If your customers are mobile, why isn’t your business?
