Here are some steps to take to make sure your agency’s site is mobile-friendly:
Make sure your website is optimized for mobile use so it downloads quickly and renders well on mobile screens. Don’t assume your site will be “fine” on mobile; access it on different devices – smartphones, iPhones, and tablets – to make sure it looks good.
Make content fun and engaging to attract busy people on the move. People using mobile devices are usually on the go, so make your content compelling enough to earn some of their undivided attention.
Add an app to let customers take advantage of self-service options. The popularity of apps is on the rise; people love their convenience and ease of use. Make sure your app is colorful and consumer-friendly for best results.
