Whether we like it or not, we live in a mobile first society. With more than 80% of all online activity coming from mobile devices (mostly smartphones). And, according to Google, if a person has a negative experience on your mobile site, they are 60% less likely to purchase from you in the future.
More than likely, you're a part of that 60% as am I, having been on sites that just took way too long to load. Let's face it, we expect websites to load faster. I mean, it is 2018 right? As business owners and those of you who want to start/own a business, it's time to get real. Your digital footprint is the most valuable part of your marketing and if you're not on it 110%, you're missing business opportunities.
Maybe you're reading this and you're shaking your head yes. But in the back of your mind you may be thinking you just can't afford a new website, or an IT guy/gal. That's ok. You honestly don't need a huge budget or even a dedicated IT person to improve your overall mobile speed.
The geniuses over at Google have created a website that not only tests your site but gives you a detailed outline of ways to improve it. As if that wasn't enough, they have tons of articles and resources designed to give all of us small business owners a leg up!
