Your mobile website is arguably more important than your web site. This is because people are constantly attached to their smartphones. Without a proper mobile web design, you may risk pushing customers the other way. In today’s blog, we’ll look at 5 tips that will help you succeed.
1. Optimize content for mobile
When you’re writing content for your main site, keep in mind that it should be optimized for your mobile site as well. Run-on paragraphs and long verbiage can detract from the customer experience. A helpful piece of advice to make this happen is to think mobile first, web second.
2. Make space
Just like you wouldn’t want a bunch of things crammed together on your website, the same applies to mobile. Make sure to leverage white space where it is needed to provide a friendlier mobile experience. Another small but useful tip is to replace big numbers with percentages. This is another great way to make room!
3. Use a drop down navigation bar
On mobile, you don’t need a full-on navigation bar at the top of your page. It makes your site look unnecessarily stuffy. Instead, make use of a drop down menu to make room, and provide a more elegant UI.
4. Keep in mind a responsive design
Engagement is key to gain a customer’s attention. Be sure to implement animations, CTAs, interactive elements, and anything to keep customers interested for more. Remember not to overdo it, but do be sure to keep this tip in mind.
5. Get rid of pop ups
Last but not least, get rid of pop ups. This can detract from the overall experience and discourage customers from further engagement with your mobile site.
