Let’s first understand the difference. Your current ‘desktop’ website viewed on a smartphone means visitors are pinching, zooming, scrolling or searching for everything, including your contact details. Not a good start, so much so that in a flash, they’ve gone!
Why mobile? More people access the Internet through a smartphone that a PC! People lead busy lives these days. The need to access information quickly and on the go is now the norm. If your website is responsive to any type of browser, including smartphones, you can dazzle your visitors by providing the ultimate experience.

Think of it this way, if you can encourage visitors who are browsing your website on a mobile device to stay longer on your website, you increase your chances of forming a relationship with that individual and receiving either a sale lead enquiry.
