Is Your Website Mobile Friendly?

If it isn’t, you’re forgetting about half of your audience.

With today’s on-the-go world, you have to be able to support visitors to your site on whatever device they use. Based on current stats, a non-mobile friendly site risks losing over half of its visitors.

Think about it. If visitors can’t easily navigate, can’t find information, or are frustrated by a desktop site presented on a small screen, they aren’t going to have a positive experience with your brand. That can leave the impression that you don’t care to support the needs of customers.

So, what is a mobile-friendly website?

Mobile-friendly websites are designed to accommodate the screen sizes and functional needs of mobile users. On a mobile-friendly site, content dynamically re-sizes and re-aligns based on the screen size of the user’s device to retain its readability and clarity. In certain cases, assets are optimized or even hidden to ensure a fast and enjoyable web browsing experience. A mobile friendly site also anticipates the ease of navigation by swiping, tapping, or gesturing rather than using a mouse and a traditional menu.
