Really That Important?
Is having your website responsive for mobile devices really that important? Or is it just a nice-to-have bone-throwing exercise for your customers?
While sitting by the fire this past weekend with a millennial professional, these words popped out: “I do everything from my phone.”
While out to dinner the other night I saw a mom with her daughter and two college friends. Who was the only one glued to her phone during dinner? The mom! Hmmm! Not just the youngsters.
Follow up both of these situations with a slice of info from Google that a new site ranking metric will be mobile responsiveness, and things start to get interesting. Now throw in that 80 percent of searches will be from mobile devices and, well, I guess we have lift off.
Who’s Getting Mobile?
What was all the noise when the mighty Facebook was going public? “They have weak mobile revenue.” “They have no mobile strategy.” I think we can all agree that they cleaned that mess up toot sweet. Why emulate a company that has 18 percent of the earth’s population using their service? Do I really have to answer that?

Make it easy and they will come, shop, visit, click, share, post, paste, view and buy. Making your site responsive just makes sense, PERIOD. It’s more than the fries with your burger question.
