47% of businesses don’t have mobile-friendly websites. This means that 47% of businesses are missing out on over half of consumers. The days of the desktop are done. Consumers want everything on-the-go, and if your site isn’t mobile-friendly then you’re falling behind.
More than half of internet users will simply give up and bounce from a site if it fails to load within four seconds. It’s no secret that a high bounce rate equates to a poor UX. And with Google’s emphasis on mobile-friendly websites, slow page speeds can cause major SEO issues.
