The Nightmare Scenario:
Allen, a road building contractor, wakes up to find that a critical piece of heavy equipment has been vandalized and destroyed on his job site overnight. He needs a replacement right away–he pulls out his smartphone, and googles: “Compactor for Sale”. A list of compactors appears but unfortunately your dealership, which is nearby, does not appear on the list. Allen buys a compactor from another dealership that he found on Google on his smartphone…
The Stark Facts:
- In May of 2015, Google modified it’s indexing and search technology so that now it gives priority to mobile-friendly websites when users search from mobile devices…
- In 2016, mobile users on smartphones and tablets account for 65% of all internet traffic.
The Bottom line:
If your company’s website inventory is not mobile friendly you are missing sales opportunities when your customers are searching for replacement equipment from their smartphones while on their work sites or in the fields.
