Another week, another blog about website responsiveness. BUT that should tell you just how important it is!
There are countless examples of websites that badly-designed or non-responsive sites have ruined user experience. But we’ve got your back, so you don’t frustrate your customers with these two (easily avoidable) mistakes.
This week I thought I would share my top tips for making sure your website converts great to mobile devices. Because, as we discussed last week, the majority of people are searching online using their mobile devices. Twice in one month, clearly we feel very passionate about this topic.
Here are my top two (that’s right, just TWO) things to make sure the 64% of customers searching on their phones love your site.
Speed, that’s a thing.
As Chandler Bing stated, “It bodes well for me that speed impresses you.”
With that in mind, ask yourself, “Does my website load within three seconds?” Because that’s all the time you have before 83% of mobile viewers bounce.
Some of the things that could be slowing down your mobile website are:
- Images are not condensed
- Too many “heavy” elements like video
- Cluttered code
Aaand here we go with the size again…
? PIN IT
- Are your buttons and links big enough to tap with a finger (or thumb)? Because who has two thumbs and buying power??? YOUR CUSTOMER!
- Are your headlines TOO BIG, or your font TOO SMALL?
- Landscape images look great on desktops but don’t translate to portrait views on phones. Do you have alternative images for mobile viewers?
- Don’t forget your forms!!! If it stays small, your customers will have to zoom in to fill it out, and nobody has time for that.
Now go forth and kick a**!!
