Why you need a mobile friendly website

As more and more people use their smart phones to access the internet, more and more websites are going unseen as they are not mobile friendly.

In fact, forecasts predict that by next year there will be 1.7 billion mobile internet users worldwide. That’s a lot of potential customers.

But if your site either won’t – or is slow to – download on a mobile phone, or is hard to read on a small screen, you could potentially lose thousands of dollars in sales.

Firstly, you need to be aware that Flash or Javascript does not work on all mobiles, so if your main website is built using these codes, it’s a safe bet you are already missing out on potential customers.

What else can you do to make your site mobile friendly? Here’s five tips.

  1. Get your developer to install a plug-in which can transform your mobile-unfriendly site into a mobile-friendly site in minutes.
  2. Write clear content so that when a potential customer is reading your copy on a small device, the benefits and the call to action are immediate – they don’t have to scroll down reams of text.
  3. Practice good design by keeping things uncluttered and simple with good use of white space and easily scannable layout.
  4. Create user-friendly navigation so customers can find their way around even on the smallest of screens.
  5. Don’t use too may images that may take time to download.

Direct Sites Online has the expertise to create mobile-friendly websites – or turn an “unfriendly” site around. So if you can’t read your site on a smart phone, contact us at or call 02 9557 7623
