Mobile optimization can increase sales, generate more traffic, and boost customer engagement. Here at GHI Internet Services we are pushing Mobile Websites to our current clients due to the growing rate of mobile users, it’ll give you an edge over the competition, too.
Smartphones and other mobile devices are widely used throughout the world, and the number of users is steadily growing. In 2009 mobile browsing represented 0.7% of worldwide browsing activity. By August 2011, that number had jumped to 7.1%, a 1000% increase!
Mobile Optimization Boost Sales
