Make sure your website is mobile friendly! Important factors are: –

  1. Speed – make sure all pages load quickly
  2. Simplicity – make navigation intuitive
  3. Size – design your site so even the largest hands can interact with ease
  4. Visible – ensure your content can be read easily on different sized devices
  5. Accessibility – your website should work across all mobile devices and handset orientations

Check out how your site functions on a device by visiting a test site (other sites are available!)

Make sure your business website is optimised to perform at the best level on mobile devices.   A good percentage of social media users do so on a mobile device, therefore it is reasonable to assume that if they follow a link to your website, they will be viewing on the same device.

Make sure your mobile site looks good and works as well as your desktop site.  It is always a good option to allow people to swap to the desktop site should they choose.  You can use a tool such as Google’s Mobile-Friendly tool to check how your site is running.

We will be doing a lesson piece on best practice for mobile sites shortly so watch this space!
