Mobile Friendly Sites: Why and How?

Can’t attract mobile-users to your website? Then learn to make a mobile friendly sites

When in the process of building a site, clients first concern is rarely whether or not the site is mobile friendly.  Design, colors, content, etc, all come first.  Why should this feature be as important as your site’s design itself?

In addition to checking out your website on a phone, you can analyze the mobile-friendliness of a site using comprehensive online tests. Google has one that is quick and offers an image of what your site looks like on a mobile device. You can find this tool here!

Why is it important to have a site that is easy to access on a phone? Simply because consumers use their phones to do research and to shop as much as, if not more than they use laptops. If a site functions poorly on a mobile device, the odds of customers staying on the site and contacting you is lower, and the work you put into the look of the site is wasted.

Obtaining a good mobile-friendly score is about the format you use.  Custom-coded sites are more difficult to make mobile, so nowadays, web developers will use plugins and applications to speed up the process. WPtouch, for example, is a WordPress plugin that adjusts your site without changes the code. It is good, in the meantime, to get into the habit of building with mobile responsiveness in mind. Using a company aware of responsive design and screen size will dramatically improve the quality of your site.

Mobile-Friendliness is rapidly becoming one of the most important elements of a website. The more your customers continue to use their phones for business, the happier they will be to use your mobile responsive platform!
