Always go mobile-first
This is the most important rule of 2019.
Nowadays, people are very mobile and browse on their phones and tablets. In 2018 alone more than half of all visits happened on a phone (and that does not even include tablets!).
On our NATULIQUE website, more than 70% of all visits come from a phone or a tablet. So if your website still does not scale or work on mobile, you are in trouble. Whether you are having someone make your salon website design for you, or you channel your inner web-designer-Potter and wave your wand, do it thinking mobile-first.
These are some simple steps you can take to make your website mobile-friendly:
– Test it on a real device: Mobile-first means that you design your website for browsing it on a phone and once it looks good, you check that it works on your desktop computer.
This will ease up your clients’ online booking process on-the-go and take away the stress of navigating around a cluttered, non-mobile-friendly website.
– Avoid large and complex graphics: When proof-checking your website on a mobile device, make sure that any and all graphics look good and are easy to comprehend. The same applies to texts – comprehensibility is key!
Trust us, your clients and visitors will love you for it – and you will have more happy people in your chair.
