We know you have taken notice. Everywhere you turn, there is someone glued to his or her smartphone. No longer is it just kids texting their friends; us adults are using them too – and for business!

People are in love with their phones and the ability to easily access information at a moments notice. It has been reported, that by the end of 2017, over 2 billion smartphone and tablet users will make a transaction over their mobile device. The problem is, phone and tablet screens are small. Reading and navigating a website through a mobile device can be frustrating. A potential customer who gets frustrated with your site will quickly hit the back button and move on to a competitor’s site. So, the question you have to ask yourself is: “Is my website mobile-friendly?”
