Embarrassing website fail

Take a look at your site now on your phone. Now look at your competitor’s. Is your site easy to navigate? Is theirs?

We crossed a tipping point last month. According to research from Capgemini, 52% of visits are now from mobiles or tablets. If your site isn’t built with mobile in mind, you risk turning away customers. With a Nettl :one site, get a website that works on mobile, tablet and desktop in one.

Oh dear, Witcham Bakery. They just wanted to flog their finger buns and donuts and they’ve gone and made a ghoulish error.

Does your website let you down as badly as theirs? Probably not. But how does it look on your mobile phone? Take a look now. Does it all reflow and rearrange itself, so the text is nice and readable and the images fit the page? Or do you need to zoom in to read it, then pan left and right? If so, then that’s awkward for your visitors and you could be turning them off.

According to a survey last month by Capgemini, we’ve crossed a tipping point. Most visitors are now coming to websites on their mobile phone or tablet. If your website isn’t built with mobile in mind, you risk losing business. With a Nettl :one site, get a website that works on mobile, tablet and desktop in one.
