Why Build a Mobile First Responsive Site?
Your immediate gains: Studies show that 72% of smartphone owners made a purchase from their mobile phone or tablet-based local search. If your website won’t fully load fast for tablet and smartphone users, they are more than likely going to search for a faster loading competitor business or buy your competitors products online instead. Your long-term gains: Since early 2014, mobile Internet users have outnumbered desktop users. By investing in a mobile first responsive website, you are preparing your website and your business to respond to the increasing customer demands of today.
