We’re going to take a look at three things that are very important for a small business owner to be aware of and to be preparing for if you have not already. I am going to be showing you some statistics. I am not usually a numbers person but I’m going to be showing you some statistics that go along with all this that make the case for being ready for mobile.
The three things that we’re going to look at are mobile traffic, which is are you getting mobile traffic to your business, are you getting it to your website, and if so, how much? That’s an important question, because if you’re getting any more than 25% of your business from mobile you really need to have a plan for accommodating those mobile customers. We’re going to talk about what I need to do to have your website mobile ready, and finally, how to be able to take payments from mobile buyers. We’re going to take a look at all three, and as always I will be showing you the most simple, elegant ways to do all these. Not complicated, not hugely expensive, but what’s the best way for a small business to approach these.
The first thing you need to know is am I getting mobile traffic. If you are a brick and mortar location you can simply ask people how they found out about you, and did they do it from their smartphone or did they do it from home on their desktop or laptop. You also want to be taking a look at your website and how much traffic your website is getting from mobile customers. There’s actually a pretty simple way of doing this.
But before we take a look at that I want to show you the case for getting mobile traffic and the trend that’s happening in mobile. These are statistics from socialmediaonlineclass.com from our Google Analytics account. This shows us how much of our traffic to our website is coming from desktop vs mobile vs tablet. Now starting in 2012 almost 90% of our traffic was desktop, this big blue circle here. Only 5% was coming from mobile and only 5% was coming from a tablet.
Now in 2013 that desktop traffic dropped by almost 10%. We’re now down to 81%. Mobile more than doubled from 5% to 11 and tablet had a smaller increase from 5 to 8%. Now last year we saw a significant drop in desktop traffic, and again, mobile traffic increased now to 16% and tablet is staying steady at about 8%. I’m predicting that we’ll see more of this as we go through 2015. I think you’ll see desktop drop down to probably around in the 60%, and in 2016 we’ll probably be looking at a half and half scenario.
That’s a really, really important thing to know, is how many of your website visitors and in-store traffic visitors are coming for their mobile phones. Now that was a global figure that I was showing you before. These trends are globally. Just here in the United States it’s actually even more so. Desktop has dropped from 75 to 71% and almost 20% mobile traffic. That’s a significant increase in mobile visitors. You really need to make your business mobile-friendly.
How do you know how much traffic you’re getting from mobile visitors? You want to use Google Analytics, and I’m going to show you how to do that right now. Try that again.
