Having a mobile friendly site is now crucial for businesses and here is why:
Those are some pretty important stats to consider when developing a online presence.
Mobile phones are so portable that people use them as a main source for surfing webpages and browsing through apps. People are wanting simpler applications to suit their fast paced lifestyles. If a mobile site is too hard to navigate many consumers will give up on the page and won’t proceed with a purchase or be interested in the company or products. It is vital to make a site that can adapt to multiple devices such as computer, mobile and tablet screens.
Many companies have different layouts from web browser to mobile device but it is important to make sure your consumers can recognise the brand straight away.
Carlisle Homes has two very different layouts to adapt to different screens making the usability easier and they still ensure their logo and colour scheme runs the same across devices.
They have kept the same symbols and colours for the side bars which makes consumers feel more comfortable when using the site on different platforms.
There are companies that have gone one step further and created apps for those loyal consumers or people who want something quick and simple to access.
Front runners for real estate apps are Domain and Real Estate.
These apps create a hub where searches for properties, either in the area or across the nation, is made easy.
I have herd from some consumers that Real Estate used to be very popular but Domain is now a favourite.
Why do you think this could be?
Maybe check out the apps for yourself and see. I’d love to hear which one you like better.
