1. What is everyone using?
The number of people searching the internet on mobile devices has now surpassed the users searching on desktops. (According to Comscore). We are all attached to our smartphones, taking them with us everywhere, so it makes sense that these statistics are changing. So you want to make sure you are staying relevant in today’s market. Have you ever gone to a non mobile friendly site on your phone? The text is tiny, you have a hard time selecting the menu, and before you know it you are just exiting the screen because you are frustrated. That is probably a lost customer that never go the chance to connect with your business.
You know the saying:
“You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”

Adjusting to this market could mean more sales to your business.
