Mobile Web Design Toronto
The mobile user experience needs to be designed.
Today's market is more connected than ever before. We’re surfing, shopping and banking with our devices on the go, and your customers are doing the very same.
Some things we think you should know…
Mobile is going to be the way of the future. It already is! Over 50% of your website traffic is coming from a mobile device! Internet usage on mobile devices will surpass the desktop by 2013. In Canada alone it is expected that mobile users will climb to nearly 30 MILLION subscribers. Canada was one of the first countries to establish a nationwide 3G network. Currently this footprint covers more than 90% of the population. Your customers are on mobile devices surfing the web and accessing information. Your website is being viewed on these small devices.
Lets face it; a phone screen is much smaller than a desktop screen. Websites were not designed to be enjoyed or display its tremendous capabilities and functionality on a small screen, and therefore, a new set of rules has been written for the modern mobile website.
Mobile websites specifically aim to tailor the user experience of the mobile Internet user today. The number of mobile Internet users has doubled in the last year alone, and with that number, the need for mobile compatible websites. As more and more people surf the web from their mobile device, web development has evolved once again to enhance the user experience, from its current insufficiencies. Almost 90% of all sites are not mobile friendly.
Mobile ready websites should display the most vital information with quality and presence through a mobile device that is consistent and complimentary to their counterpart site. In other words, you don't need to reproduce everything you've done on your existing website. Simply have the most important content developed for that smaller device, instead of being a tiny, unappreciated version of a site designed for the big screen. This will not only enhance the users experience but will capture your audience. Most of us are usually on the go when we're using these devices so getting to that vital information is key.
What happens to sites that are not mobile friendly?
Text and images from galleries and the like may be so small that surfing the site may be displeasing for the end user, having to zoom in and out to view information, or leaving the site because plugins such as flash is simply not supported and therefore not visible on a mobile device. It's kind of silly to be losing traffic or business over something that can be accommodated. We can help!
