Just last year we gave the Hardy Buoys Smoked Fish Inc. website a fresh new look and now everything runs smoothly on mobile and tablet devices (responsive website design). Since then we’ve done the same for many other websites and small business websites like Returning to Hope and Bebbington Industries.
We’ve mentioned before and in a few of our published articles (Feb. 7, 2013,“Responsive Website Design is the Smart Solution for Business”) how important it is for your website to be mobile friendly. Many of the businesses we worked with last year and the ones mentioned above, learned about responsive website design by reading one of our articles and then enquired about making the switch to a responsive designed website. Most, if not all of these businesses are now seeing great results and getting a boost from mobile traffic. Now, mobile users are entering the website and viewing page after page and are able to make buying decisions, where before, most of these mobile users would enter the website and leave since the website was not friendly to mobile devices.
Today we are going to add to the above, it’s even more important for e-commerce sites to be a responsive too as it can have a huge impact on sales for e-commerce sites. With around 60% of all consumer web-traffic being done using mobile devices, it’s now critical for e-commerce sites to support mobile platforms.
Here’s some interesting stats:
- 60% of consumers are using either a mobile phone or tablet to browse online
- 45% of consumer sales are made on mobile devices
- 78% of consumers are opening emails on a mobile device
- Visitors from emailers are 10x more likely to buy something compared with traffic from social media
