Should we call it an ‘inevitable’ option today? 100% yes. Possessing a fully functional Mobile friendly website has become a must for every business that depends on its online site for business development.
Statistics : The statistics that we have today would best answer your questions and justify why your business badly depends on a Mobile ecommerce website. 25% of Americans access internet only from their Mobile devices. And before your blink your eye there will be a slight increase in this percentage already. There are 5 mobile phones for every single PC existing today. Out of 10 mobile searches, 9 lead to action, in which over half end in purchase. All the stats that we come across regarding mobile computing, hints only one thing clearly: Mobile is your future, that’s where your fortune lies.
The more you delay in launching your mobile ecommerce website, the more advantage is your competitor taking on you. Say for example your mini online book store had 250 regular and loyal customers who have been using your service for over 3 years now. And as the mobile fever is catching up, irrespective of what age group they are they are going to buy a mobile device themselves and later as they search for your service online to use, and if they don’t find easy enough to use it through mobile platform, then they are going to look for an ‘alternative’ who has a smoother user mobile site which is your devilish competitor. And in no time a donkey will be chewing your ‘long list of loyal customers’.
