• On average, 9% of total website visits in 2012 were through mobile devices – a 225% increase YOY.

Don’t be left behind.
Traditionally, websites were developed to be viewed on a desktop or laptop. This design does not translate well onto hand held devices, leaving users frustrated with distorted content and slow loading. Studies show that optimizing your website with a mobile-friendly version are more likely to increase the likelihood of returning visitors and drastically reducing bounce rates.
