How to Make Your Website Mobile-Friendly and Load in a Flash

May 3, 2019 by kidd

3 seconds is all you have before a visitor leaves your site because it's slow. If your site fails to load quickly on mobile devices, 53% of people will leave.

Nowadays, it's hard to find anyone without a smartphone or tablet glued to their hand. People use their phone to research the hottest shops, the best restaurants, pretty much anything. If you can't be found on their phone, forget gaining their business.

Think of the revenue lost because your website isn't mobile-friendly.

So you're no longer missing out, here are three ways to make your website mobile-friendly fast.

Use a Responsive Design

A responsive website is one that's mobile-friendly. No matter how the user accesses your website (via phone or tablet), it shows up on the screen without affecting performance. 

However, building one yourself is rather difficult. To save yourself time and to avoid frustration, a custom website is a wise investment.

Compress Images

Oftentimes, the culprit of slow loading time is images. Ones with too big of a file take too long to download. It's annoying for users to have to sit and wait for images to load before they can get to the rest of your content.

To solve this issue, compress high-resolution pictures. This will optimize them so they load faster and without interruption.

Place Information Where It's Easily Seen

When people use their mobile devices for research, they want that information to appear as quick as possible. So they don't have to search your entire website, have your menu be easily accessible, preferably at the top of your site.

To assist users with their search, include an FAQ page. Users can get their burning questions answered without having to contact customer service or worse, go to a competitor. 

Get More Business with a Mobile-Friendly Website
