Studies show that 95% of mobile internet users search for local businesses on their mobile devices, 61% of these users call the businesses after searching, and 59% visit the location.
Burbank, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
The amount of people that use mobile devices has been on the rise and is continuing to increase. As of January 2012, there are 45 million people in the United States that own tablet devices such as iPads, and almost twice that amount are using smart phones. This means that more than 145 million people are currently using mobile internet. It is estimated that by 2014 more people will be accessing the internet from their mobile devices than from their desktops.
Despite this continuing trend, not every business is ready for the mobile internet craze. This is unfortunate, as it can result in the loss of more potential customers than any business can afford to miss out on.
Improper use of flash can result in a website that only displays well on some devices while displaying poorly or not at all on others. Not surprisingly, many websites have difficulty displaying properly on mobile devices, which can result in a loss of potential customers.
“Studies show that 95% of mobile internet users search for local businesses on their devices, 61% of these users call the businesses after searching, and 59% visit the location,” says Austin Brooks, creative director at 981 Media. “90% of these people act within 24 hours of their search.” Considering this, it is vital that businesses utilize responsive web design.
The search for a company that can provide this can be a difficult one. Because of the way most companies build their websites, businesses tend to find themselves stuck with sites that look wonderful until they are accessed on a mobile device.
Many Los Angeles business owners struggle with display and indexing issues on their websites. Luckily, responsive design is one of 981 Media’s specialties. Their responsive, award-winning web design makes for websites whose display will not be determined by what kind of device they are accessed on.
Rather than create several different versions of the same website to accommodate each device on which it may be accessed, 981Media makes websites that respond appropriately to all the devices on which they may be viewed. This technology, which the company has aptly titled ‘Responsive Web Design’, is used to create websites that automatically resize themselves in order to fit any mobile device.
