Build websites for mobile phones and other devices
What is a mobile website and can it improve my business?
Can creating a mobile version of a website improve your business and draw new clients? What does ‘a mobile website’ mean anyway?
Mobile website is a site which can be accessed from all devices, such as mobile phones, tablets, desktop computers etc., and viewed on all screen types and dimensions without it influencing user experience (UX).
Mobile or responsive design is no longer a new thing in web design. It emerged as a reaction to constant usage of mobile devices which can access the Internet at any time or in any place, thus enabling its users to obtain information quickly. People are now so used to the Internet that they can barely make it through a few hours without using it.
In the past, internet searches came from desktop computers only, so websites were designed accordingly. However, in the past five years or more, we witness the growth in the number of mobile users. In fact, in 2016 mobile search has grown immensely up to 41% worldwide!
The experts predict that in the following years, mobile search is going to top desktop search, which is already going down (it is currently at 53.7%).
If we take these two facts into consideration, the answer to the question we have asked at the beginning is clear: adapting a website to mobile phones is a smart investment now and it will certainly be in the future.
