Ep. 138 | Why Your Medical Practice Needs a Mobile Website Design
Analytics show the majority of patients are starting to access your website from their mobile device (phone or tablet). In fact, for some of our clients we see as much as 70% of traffic coming from mobile devices, and that’s why your medical practice needs a mobile website design.
Think about it. Ever notice the Facebook desktop website completely sucks (sorry, Mark), while the app runs seamlessly on your phone? It’s because Facebook knew early on the majority of users were shifting over to a mobile-first mentality and they wanted to be ahead of the curve. Well, the curve is here whether your practice is ready for it or not.
In this episode we explain why desktop viewing is becoming more obsolete, and why it’s so important to embrace mobile viewing (sometimes called responsive web design) as soon as possible by focusing your efforts on making sure your practice’s page is mobile-friendly and optimized for seamless searching.
