48% of UK Online Businesses Will Have Mobile Websites in 2013

Because of the fact that standard e-commerce websites when viewed on a smartphone or tablet can be difficult to navigate, UK businesses are committed to have mobile websites up and running this year. One UK company, Twistfix, will be using Mobile Website Design and Development Company Brickweb to help accomplish this task. Twistfix is an online supplier of masonry crack repair products to the construction, repair and renovation industries, as well as DIY-enthusiasts.

According to PRWeb, this is in direct response to the meteoric rise in popularity of smartphones and tablets, of which there were an estimated 7 billion worldwide at the end of last year.  Customers that cannot properly use a website with their mobile device will often turn to a competitor’s website that supports mobile devices thereby losing business.

This looks like a trend that will probably eventually force any online company to offer a website suited for mobile devices or face the real possibility of becoming extinct.
