Humans have always tended to gravitate toward things that provide instant gratification. The fact that mobile usage has now surpassed desktop traffic is further proof that we know what we want, and we want it now.
The number of people searching from mobile devices for the goods and services they wish to buy continues to increase every year. Consumers can access the Internet virtually everywhere across Alberta, which means there are no limits to when and where people can shop online from their mobile devices. For business owners of any shape and size, this is a huge opportunity - don't miss out!
In the not-so-distant past, mobile web development was a lot less common or, at least, very different from what it is today. Whereas, before, mobile website design typically involved a separate, mobile version of the website or mobile apps, today's users are much more savvy and less willing to wait for their results. Plus, compared to what's available today, mobile website design in the early years was still pretty crude and not very user-friendly.
Fast-forward to today and the best option for driving more of these mobile users to your business is a responsive website. Saltmedia specializes in responsive design, where a highly attractive and robust website is the single outlet for any and all devices. What's more is that this isn't just a practical solution for attracting the attention of more mobile users today, it's a website solution that's capable of taking your business into the future, as well.
When Google announced that websites that weren't compatible with mobile devices would be penalized, it was a final nudge for businesses that had been dragging their heels when it came to upgrading their sites. Basically, if you're still operating with a website that isn't mobile-friendly, Google and other search engines will award the top spots in the search rankings to competitors who have kept up with the changing times.
Now, in 2017, more and more web design involves big, blocky text and large images, with responsive websites using navigation that's designed to make it easier for mobile users to get around a site.
If your business doesn't currently have a mobile-friendly design, it's time you stopped losing customers to your competitors. Give us a call and let's get started creating the website that's going to bring new leads and sales to your business now and in the future.
