You might be wondering ’why do I need a mobile friendly website’. The reality is, with smartphones becoming the new “pocket-guide” for internet users, having a mobile friendly site is paramount. We made it our mission to go and find the top 3 most compelling reasons why you should seriously consider always keeping your websites mobile compatible.
Recent intensive research has shown that up to 80% of all internet searches are conducted on smartphones alone, with about 12 percent alternating between Phones and Desktops. This then leaves a meagre 8% of internet users that use desktop only. What this then means, is that if your website is not mobile phone compatible, you are potentially losing out on between 80% and 92% of potential customers.
Google says so
Every Internet user is an underling of Google. And everyone knows if Google says so, it must be true! Google knows best, and it has been specifically set up to favor Mobile friendly websites when they receive a request on their search function. This is obviously because google also knows what we know. Mobile is King. It has been repeatedly proven that your SEO (Search engine optimization) significantly improves with Mobile Compatibility.
Social Media is king
Mobile compatibility is indispensable for a successful Social Media Marketing campaign. 87% of Social media campaigns that offer direct access to your website with one-click, are utilised by Mobile Users. This means that without mobile compatibility, you will never be able to run even a remotely successful social media campaign, and you will not be able to take advantage of valuable, basically free platforms for effective social media marketing
Cyclonic media understands all of this and make it our mission to make every website the very best whether viewed on Laptop or Mobile device. Mobile compatibility is embedded in our original design, and in our original quote, because we firmly believe it should not be an optional extra. It is a necessity.
