[Video] Why Your Website Needs a Mobile-First Design

Did you know 88% of online customers won’t return to a website after a bad experience?

Now, try viewing your business website on your phone really quick. Does it look as good as it does on desktop? It better!

Here’s why your website needs mobile-first design.

 

Google favors mobile-first sites.

Google’s pushed web developers to create mobile-friendly sites for years now. Actually, Google is so dedicated to mobile they just announced they’re enabling mobile-first indexing by default.

The good news is: By now, most web developers are comfortable working on mobile-first sites. So it should be a fairly common (and doable) request for your developer to incorporate mobile-first design on your site.

In return, you’ll get better rankings and more organic traffic.

Mobile-first design simplifies your site.

While the initial switch to mobile-first design takes work, it simplifies your site in the long run.

You’ll have:

  • One site for all devices
  • Cleaner design

And, it lets you focus on writing really good content.

You’ll lose business without it.

Even if you don’t think a mobile-first website is important, your customers do.

In fact, 57% of internet users say they won’t recommend a business with a poorly designed mobile site.

So, without mobile-first design, you could lose out on referrals and return visits from customers.
