Does your website play nice with mobile devices?
Actually what I really mean is when someone uses a mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad or and Android device to view your website are they actually able to view it in a way that makes it easy to read? Or does your website look the same way on a mobile device as it does on your laptop or desktop?
It’s a good question to ask yourself because according to recent statistics quoted by Small Biz Trends website about half (that’s 50%) of all website visitors coming to your site will most likely be looking at it from their mobile device.
And y’know what? There’s a really easy way to find out if your website is mobile friendly or what is sometimes in the web developers world called “responsive” (That means that it “responds” to different “viewports” or devices).
I created a video tutorial here:
on how to tell if your website is mobile friendly/responsive right from your laptop or desktop.
And what if your website is not mobile friendly? Well, it’s not the end of the world but it sure is worth fixing because you don’t want half of the visitors to your site just going away because they can’t comfortably read your site and consume your juicy content and offers.
The first thing you will need to do is to have a WordPress website designer (hey that’s me! wink wink!) and have them install a new WordPress “theme” that has a responsive layout. Usually installing a new theme means reformatting most of your content and images and, depending on the new theme, reworking some of the layout. A job like that could take between 5 – 10 hours to complete, again, depending on the theme.
As I said before it really is worth it to make sure your site works well on mobile devices. The world has been moving in that direction for a while now and it will continue to move in that direction well into the future.
