Professional Community for Automotive Marketers, Car Dealers, OEM and Suppliers
In a recent blog post of mine, I highlighted some research done on mobile ads and if it is worth a dealership to spend money on it. Today, I am here to tell you why you should have a mobile site for your dealership (if you don’t already). Some 12.6% of total website traffic was generated via mobile device in the fourth quarter of 2011, up 102% from the 6.3% recorded a year earlier, according to the Walker Sands Quarterly Web Traffic Report. Additionally, according to AD:60, having a mobile site is a must and they have compiled an infographic that lists 10 Reasons Why You Need a Mobile Site. “The list should obliterate any reasons against putting mobile at the top of your digital must-haves,” Alex Matjanec said, partner and CMO of AD:60.
So here are the top 10 Reasons you need a mobile site:
4. The proportion of mobile-only users is even higher in developing countries
5. Mobile commerce is growing fast
7. Couch Commerce is rising
8. Smartphone users have a higher than average income
9. Mobile sites are important for both physical and digital stores
10. Your normal site is not thumb friendly!
Still not interested? Well, mobile search queries already account for roughly 15% of all Google search volume across categories, according to Google. So what are you waiting for? By creating experiences that connect, convert, and engage your audiences you will be sure to attract your tech savvy shoppers as well as provide better services to existing customers. Therefore, in saying that, set up a user-friendly mobile website ASAP! Thumbs are the new fingers!
