The numbers are in and this year’s Black Friday saw an increase in online shopping, specifically on mobile platforms. With Black Friday sales on mobile-optimized sites up a reported 187% this year, it seems that a mobile site is necessary for eCommerce success. A study conducted earlier this year by Briteskies found that a surprising 65% of businesses do not have a mobile-optimized site. That fact, along with Black Friday sales results, clearly supports the idea that mobile-optimization is a crucial opportunity for eCommerce retailers. Read on below for additional reasons why eCommerce retailers should have a mobile-optimized site. Leave your comments; we would love to hear from you.
