THOSE POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS WHO ARE ON THEIR SMARTPHONE
SEARCHING GOOGLE FOR THE SERVICE OR PRODUCT YOU SELL.
BUT WHEN THEY FIND YOUR WEBSITE THEY CAN’T EASILY FIND
THE INFORMATION THAT THEY NEED TO CONTACT YOU
& WHEN THEY DO THEY CAN’T USE IT ON THEIR MOBILE.
SO THEY LEAVE YOUR WEBSITE AND GO TO YOUR COMPETITORS.
A survey of major retailers revealed that traffic from customers on the move – or slumped on sofas – has overtaken browsing and buying from desktop computers. The survey showed that 52 per cent of all visits to retailers’ websites were from mobile devices (source: StatCounter) compared with just 3 per cent in 2010. – and then came the GOOGLE MICE UPDATE and now the MOBILE FIRST ALGORITHM CHANGE
HAVE YOU LOOKED AT YOUR WEBSITE ON A SMARTPHONE? IT’S PROBABLY AN UNSATISFACTORY EXPERIENCE.
Try it – did you think, “Blimey that’s hard work now I think about it”
It’s so small you can’t read it and you need to keep on pinching, expanding & sliding then you lose track of where you were and can’t find the link you’re looking for, or see the pictures and when you do find the link you end up clicking the next link down – what a mess?
You really ought to get yourself a proper mobi website. A mobilised site is not competition for your existing site, it’s a partner! Have a play with the smartphone emulators below, your desktop p.c. won’t have a touch screen but the scroll bars allow you to move the page. They’re quite large compared to many of today’s mini smartphones but you still need to manipulate the desktop websites constantly – then when you find the phone number……….. do you read it out to your mate so they can type it into their phone?
Or find pen & paper & write it down so you can close your browser, open the phone software, type it in? Or if you know how to copy & paste the number by moving little sliders……….
With the dedicated mobile websites shown, one touch on the ‘Contact Us’ button & on a smartphone it opens up your phone software, another touch on your little green phone icon and….ker-ching – they have direct contact with you.
The mobile emulator views of desktop sites below are device-dependant renditions which can vary between individual devices, expanded here sufficient to make the text readable. Other mobile devices will show your website fully reduced to show the whole page on the phone’s screen at around only one sixth of it’s original size making it unreadable.
THE SOONER YOU PICK UP YOUR PHONE AND CALL US,
THE SOONER YOU’LL GET MORE CUSTOMERS
Your desktop p.c. (by definition) might not support the mobile functionality that the above emulators include. Some colours may not match a smartphone display, buttons may appear as bars & text may be in your p.c. default font. If you have Skype on your desktop then clicking the “Contact Us button” might try to open Skype, without Skype it will return: Action Unavailable or similar. Feel free to contact us with your mobile telephone number and request an sms text of links to mobile sites that you can browse through for an exact rendition of all features and functionality.
Obviously this dot-co-dot-uk site is for B2B information purposes and to provide the required details, it is not designed for mobile browsing. It’s unpredictable rendering on a narrow screen internet enabled mobile phone demonstrates the need for having your own mobile site.
