During the summer of 2015, for the first time in history, the percentage of searches carried out by mobile devices on Google.com overtook the percentage of searches performed on a desktop computer. Since then, things have only continued to shift towards mobile. If you do not have a mobile-friendly website today, you are missing out on business. Here are some of the ways that you can make sure that your website provides a flawless experience to those visiting on a smartphone:
Use the Right Layout for a Mobile-Friendly Website
Mobile-friendly website design can provide a beautiful and seamless browsing experience to visitors on desktop computers, tablets, cell phones, and other devices. Website layout and design are key elements of making sure that your website loads quickly and legibly for all. Working with a professional ensures that your website will reformat correctly to suit the device it is being displayed on.
Create the Right Content
The layout is one piece of the puzzle, but if you have too much content or content that does not suit a mobile viewing experience, your website will still be inefficient and not as effective as it could be. When writing copy that looks great on mobile devices, you should focus on key points instead of lengthy paragraphs. Integrate calls to action throughout each page and keep forms as short as possible to avoid losing customers in the middle of a transaction.
Space Links Out
Another hallmark of a good mobile-friendly website is links that are placed as buttons or spaced out. Few things are more irritating than trying to click a small link on a mobile device and accidentally clicking another instead. Ensure that every hyperlink on each page of your website is not placed close to another to avoid this frustration. Additionally, consider displaying links as thumb-friendly buttons whenever possible.
Choose Font Carefully
Fonts that look fantastic on your desktop and that seem appropriately sized might not feel the same on your mobile device. Take time to confirm that fonts are readable on tablets and mobile devices without sacrificing your branding. We can help you choose a font or a combination of fonts that will look fantastic on your website and provide every visitor with a great experience.
