The days of unlimited data plans are coming to an end. No longer can your mobile website get away with forcing visitors to download large images and pages.
Demonstrate to your mobile website visitors that you understand data usage and will do what you can to lower your website’s impact on their data usage.
Easy Access to Contact information
Mobile users have one-click access to a phone, so it’s important for your website to offer easy access to a contact number. Also, because of easy access to directions and navigation, it’s always a good idea to have your address easy for mobile users to find.
Focused and Organized Website Content
Mobile users are on the go. They don’t have time to search around your site to find the information they’re looking for. That’s why your mobile website content must be focused and well-organized so they can easily find what they want without having to spend time looking around and searching.
Large Buttons for Easy Navigation
Let’s face it, finger clicks are not as accurate as mouse clicks. To help users quickly and easily navigate your mobile website , make sure links and buttons are large enough for them to click without having to zoom in.
Link To Full Website
28% of Americans use a mobile device as their primary way of surfing the Internet.1 Some of these users are fully comfortable surfing on smaller devices and want full access to your standard website.
