These facts should illustrate the need to create mobile friendly websites as well as landing pages. Don’t allow users to choose your competition just because they have a site that is ready for mobile devices. If these facts are not enough for you, try these. A recent Google survey of mobile users found that 72 percent say it’s important to them that websites are mobile-friendly, yet 96 percent have visited a site that doesn’t work well on their device. Users are five times more likely to abandon the task they are trying to complete if the site isn’t optimized for mobile use, with 79 percent saying they will go back to search and try to find another site to meet their needs.
Almost three-quarters of respondents said they are more likely to revisit a mobile-friendly site. The time is now! Get your website and landing pages mobile friendly. Responsive design is the best way to accomplish this. It allows for the resizing of your content based on the size of the screen of the device using it. From PC, to tablet, to phone, your website will look great on all of them.
