In a survey by Design Shack, almost 50% of web design companies didn’t consider mobile users when building websites. Mobile users now account for over 15% of all UK web traffic so mobile websites should be considered in every web design project.
David Appleyard of Design Shack said: “The volume of traffic accessing websites using mobile phones is only going to rise for the foreseeable future. Web designers need to start adding mobile usability to their list of services quickly, and those who fail to adapt to these changes risk being left behind.”
In a market that moves so quickly and with an upward trend rocketing forward, web design studios need to consider the mobile platform. In certain markets you could be loosing sales if you don’t have a good mobile website. Most websites will perform well on the iPad but having a specifically design website for use on the iPhone and other similar mobile devices will mean users on those devices get a fully tailored experience that will drive more sales. Done right, a mobile website design doesn’t need to be expensive, you don’t need to create a completely separate website and the benefits far out way the costs. Having a mobile websites these days should be the norm but sadly it seems that a lot of web design agencies aren’t considering mobile web design important.
