Did you know IDC predicts there will be 1.3 billion mobile workers by 2015? Or that 40% of shoppers consult three or more channels before making a purchase decision. This is happening often times while they are shopping even at physical retail locations.
57% consumers will not recommend companies with poor mobile sites. This is important since 77% of consumers are likely to buy a product via recommendation and conversions are 4-10 times higher coming from trusted brand advocates.
The modern consumer of today is mobile, social, savvy and smart. They often hold knowledge in their hand more powerful than the sales representative standing in front of them.
They are not thinking “what device should I use to access website a, b or c to make a purchase decision so that the website displays best?”
Instead they are picking up whatever device is charged and available, not “borrowed” by a colleague, kid or spouse!
