These days, almost everyone has a smartphone or cell phone in their pocket, purse, or hand at all times. Smartphones in particular have become increasingly popular in the past few years and are many people’s main source for internet browsing. In fact, since 2014, people spend more time browsing from their smartphone than any other device, including personal computers.
One of the most popular things people like to use the Internet for is shopping. As an RV dealer, it is crucial that you recognize the importance of having a mobile-friendly website in order to stay competitive in your market. Without a doubt, customers interested in your RVs will be using their smartphones to look at your website, inventory, reviews, etc. With that being said, here are the reasons why Your Dealership Needs to Be Mobile:
Easy Management: While it is possible to create separate desktop and mobile websites for a business, we have found that it is a lot easier for the business owners to have one website that works on all platforms. In order to achieve this, our team uses flexible layout techniques and CSS3 Media Queries to accommodate the user’s current preferences and create one flexible and adaptive site for all customers. Whether your site uses SiteSource or EZ-Site technology, business owners can manage their site to meet the needs of all users, making the process easier and more efficient!
SEO: SEO or Search Engine Optimization is basically a technique used to help your website appear in search engines (like Google) when people search for words or phrases related to your business. Having a mobile-friendly website helps improve your SEO because so many of your potential customers will be searching for your business on their mobile devices. How you appear in search results depends on the rankings that Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. give to your website. A site that is mobile-friendly will receive much better rankings compared to a site that is not mobile-responsive. Ultimately, this well help more people see your website!
GPS and Mobile Search: As we keep mentioning (because it’s extremely true), there are millions of people searching for businesses or services everyday on their smartphones. Whether they’re at a restaurant, an airport, or stuck in a traffic jam, people look to their phone for information. One of the great things about mobile-friendly websites, is they allow users to access their phone’s GPS system and search for nearby businesses or services. Without a mobile site, you may be missing out on opportunities for locals to see your website and visit your dealership.
Staying Ahead: If you don’t currently have a mobile-friendly website, you’re already one step behind your competition. Smartphones and tablets are going to continue to increase in popularity with the development of newer and cooler gadgets by Apple, Android, and other technology companies. Even if you don’t use one of these devices yourself, you should realize that most of your customers probably do. Whether you are looking to launch a brand new site, or you have a current site that is not mobile-friendly, don’t wait any longer to Get a Mobile Website.
