The latest KPCB mobile statistics show that mobile now accounts for 51% of time spent online in the USA. It’s more important now than ever to ensure that your site is capable of displaying correctly on all devices, including mobile phones, tablets, and larger screens.
Traffic from mobile devices in the US is twice as large as traffic from apps. And it’s growing 1.2 times faster. Traffic for desktop traffic has remained flat since 2008. If the current trend continues, mobile will not only contribute more than 50% of visitors, it will produce the majority. While monetizing this growing audience has proved more of a challenge, the importance of catering well for mobile visitors to your website can hardly be overstated for any organization, irrespective of size or budget.
Many studies have shown how conversions are higher and abandonment rates lower when content is optimized for use on mobile devices. So how do you make sure that you are effectively addressing your customers on mobile devices?
