Mobile Responsive NOW Required For Marketers!
What is a mobile-responsive website design? That is, what does it actually look like on a phone? Not so long ago mobile-responsive was only recommended; today it’s NO LONGER a recommendation, it is an absolute requirement for the serious marketer!
The number of consumers viewing websites from a mobile device has surpassed those via desktop and, for companies unprepared, it is a problem. Why is it a problem?! Make it unpleasant for a consumer to navigate website information and assume they will leave & look elsewhere. Can you afford to lose the business?
The Top 8 Reasons You Simply Must Be Mobile Responsive!
- Consumers Are Mobile: Your consumers visit via a mobile device. Serious marketers want to support the BEST visual experience possible … so they don’t leave!
- Search Engine Indexes: Not just Google, but Bing and the others say they want mobile-friendly responsive content so they only have to crawl & index one page URL per subject.
- Search Engine Rank: Google has announced mobile-friendly content will see a rank advantage because it’s in their best interest to make the search user experience best possible. They have hinted non-responsive content may be discouraged or even dropped.
- Cost: Mobile responsive content conforms to all devices eliminating the need to create, manage, and incur the cost of 2nd mobile sites or apps’.
- One Digital Footprint: One website with one set of URLs is one SEO and one SMM challenge. Why volunteer to duplicate the effort of ranking two sets of the same pages?
- Consumer Experience: It must be easy to see and to navigate content. Instead of content presentations on phones where panning, stretching & scrolling across is required, a vertical approach that maintains ‘aspect ratio‘ for all content is what’s best for users.
- Image Experience: Maintaining image ‘ aspect ratio’ versus seeing a quarter or a half of that picture matters when it comes to keeping them interested and on-site!
- Lead Capture: A contact form is where a marketer captures leads. Mobile contact forms automatically adjust to the size of the user’s screen, making it convenient to fill out. Wouldn’t it be terrible to lose a lead because someone thought the contact form was too difficult to complete?
