What makes a good mobile website?
A mobile site can look good, and still not get the job done. A good mobile website will put the most important information right at the forefront. People have different needs when they’re surfing the website on their desktop, versus their phone, so it may not be the same thing in both places.
The important thing is to consider what your customers will be going to your mobile website to do.
Is it to…
- Find information
- Find out your business hours
- Get directions or find multiple locations
- Order products
- Check your catalog or menu
- Or something completely different
Once you know what your customer’s priorities are, then you’ve found your own priorities. Make it easy for your customer to find the information they want and do what they need to do on your website.
