Mobile usage is increasing every year, and with four in five users accessing online shopping through mobile a positive user experience equals a better conversion rate. Conversion can mean prompting a customer to 'click' on a link, or make an enquiry or sale... either way, a mobile website impacts the visibility and growth of your brand and business. A mobile responsive website is also now a google requisite for site indexing.
When looking at a website on a small screen, ask yourself “Is it easy to navigate and read information on this website?” If you have to repeatedly zoom in and out then this does not equate to a good user experience. It's as simple as that, mobile-friendly websites serve a specific set of graphics and menu options to users, all designed to simplify and improve the experience when viewing on small screens.
