Do You Have a Responsive Website?
May 13, 2018 By Practice Growth Pras
The importance of a website that is mobile friendly cannot be understated for business owners. In fact, Google has reported that over 50% of searches come from mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
Yet, we still see an alarming number of medical professionals who have websites that are not optimized for viewing on a mobile device.
The best option for doctors who are looking to upgrade their website is a responsive design. In simple terms, a responsive website is one that can detect the type of device that a viewer is using and alter the layout of the website to best suit that device. So you can create a beautiful website that looks great on a desktop computer, but changes for smartphone viewers while maintaining that great looking aesthetic.
If you don’t have a responsive design, chances are you are losing clients because of it. Not only do your website viewers have a worse experience on your website, Google actually punishes businesses without a mobile friendly design in the search results. If you didn’t believe in the importance of a mobile friendly design before, that should be the deciding factor.
We equip all of our clients with a responsive mobile design so that they are in the best position to be found by their clients. Non-responsive designs often make it difficult to find a business’ contact information, which is one of the top reasons that viewers will leave a mobile website. If your phone number and address are not easily accessible, you are likely letting clients slip away.
All of this may seem a bit foreign for most medical professionals, but that’s to be expected. With the busy schedule that most doctors and administrators have, there simply isn’t time to keep up with the ever-changing world of internet marketing. But that’s where we can help!
