It’s 2015, and the way we browse the Internet is changing.

With more and more people using their phones to find information, you probably know that it’s important to give your customers a mobile friendly browsing experience on your website.

That’s why we just undertook a huge change with #thenewschedulicity. All of our users now have mobile optimized sites on Schedulicity.

This will make it easier for your clients to do business with you while allowing you to focus on what you do best: serving your customers.

As we continue to use our phones more than we use our web browsers to access the Internet, a mobile friendly website becomes increasingly more important, in more ways than one. Here are three reasons we made this change.

There are 3 Reasons It’s Crucial to Have a Mobile Friendly Website

  1. A mobile friendly website will make you more visible in search engine results:

In what has been coined “the Google Mobilegeddon,” Google announced that as of April 21, 2015 it will change it’s search engine algorithm to favor mobile friendly websites. With Schedulicity’s changes, it should become even easier for consumers to find your business’ Schedulicity page because they are all mobile optimized.
If your website was not responsive, you would risk being penalized by not showing up in search results. For a local business, this could put a big dent in business, as many of clients find your business through search.

  1. A mobile friendly website increases your bookings:

An empty appointment slot is like lost money, and if your website wasn’t responsive, you’d be giving fewer people the chance to book an appointment with you. Since 60% of web traffic comes from mobile devices, it’s important to meet the client where they are. Ensuring your website is mobile friendly makes it convenient for clients to book appointments.

  1. Mobile friendly websites serve your current clients better:

You’ve worked hard for each client you have. So you want to keep them around. One of the best ways to do that is to ensure that it’s convenient to work with you.Your current clients are definitely using their phones to find out information about your business, book appointments, and interact with you at least some of the time. Mobile friendly websites have become part of good customer service.

With the way our world is moving toward mobile, it’s becoming more and more crucial to ensure your website is mobile friendly. Schedulicity has you covered!
