Mobile devices have quickly become the primary method of accessing the internet for billions of users all over the world. Capitalizing on this market is crucial for your success as a business-to-consumer company; this means you need an eCommerce platform that displays beautifully on a wide variety of devices and screen sizes, and your customers should feel the same confidence shopping on your mobile site as they do on a desktop site.
How to Capitalize on the Mobile Market
Making the most of the mobile end of your eCommerce platform generally comes down to the responsiveness and speed of your web design. Modern customers won’t bother with a slow-loading, clunky mobile interface when so many other eCommerce businesses have streamlined, beautiful mobile sites that respond just as well as their desktop sites. Responsive design, or web design that responds to the device on which a user views it, is crucial in this regard, and Magento managed support from Forix can help you develop a functional and successful mobile eCommerce strategy.
