The Tide has Turned: Mobile Users Outnumber Desktop
Within the last few years, mobile users officially tipped the scales over desktop ones: 61% of website visits in the US came from mobile in 2020, while worldwide the number rose to 68.1%. However, for many business owners who comes from traditional “brick-and-mortar” backgrounds, it can be difficult to handle both a beautiful desktop WooCommerce site alongside a smooth mobile user experience.
As we’ve written about before, e-commerce sites need to adapt their mobile layout to the design features and limitations of viewers browsing their site on a tinier screen!
That means more simplistic visuals, “swipe-through” slideshows (to browse product after product), and clickable buttons that “expand” or minimize content/product descriptions. That way, you can neatly pack in all the features of your site without overwhelming users browsing on their phone.
WooCommerce Mobile is a Whole Advertising Frontier
Along with that, advertising your WooCommerce store across mobile apps gives you a whole new level of promotional exposure. Again, your mobile ad designs need a different aesthetic when compared to desktop. The dominant form now are “swipe-able” slideshows that present your product with a beautiful, simple, bold background. That way, while playing their favorite mobile game or browsing their favorite news aggregator, users see ads for your WooCommerce store!
Diversifying where you place your online ads is key to a successful digital marketing strategy. It can seem a bit overwhelming to think about at first, but it is much easier than you might think to be running ad campaigns on desktop, mobile apps, and across the web. By fine-tuning each ad campaign to the medium it runs on, you have a much better chance of increasing your WooCommerce sales 😊
