Before I get into today’s topic, make sure you subscribe or follow to get notified about all of my pest control marketing tips. Today we’re covering how to fix Website Mistake #3 Messed Up Mobile. 3 out of 5 consumers search for businesses on their smartphone. And that number is growing all the time. Google says that 40% of mobile users will quickly turn to a competitor’s website after a bad mobile experience. That means your website must be mobile-friendly if you want to maximize your website conversion and get as many leads as possible.
Step 1 is to make sure the mobile version of your website is fast loading. At my company, we evaluate pest control websites every day and one of the biggest problems we see is sites that load slowly on mobile. People have very short attention spans when they are searching online. If your website takes too long to load on their mobile device, they will simply click over to another website. If you want us to test the speed of your mobile website, just leave a comment below.
Step 2 is to make sure your website is easy to read on a mobile device. If the text is too small to read or the user has to scroll sideways just to read your website, they will definitely click over to another pest control website.
Step 3 The navigation of your website must also be mobile-friendly. A great way to accomplish that is a compact navigation style called the hamburger menu. It’s called that because the icon is made up of three horizontal lines that almost looks like two slices of a bun with the meat in the middle. When you click on the hamburger on a mobile device, a simple navigation page should pop up to fill the screen.
Step 4 is you want a contact form or a chat box to pop up when you pull up the mobile version of your website. This is important because it makes it easy for people to contact you to ask a question or book a service with you.
Step 5 is you want a click to call button that stays on the screen to make it easy for the user to call you. Very few mobile websites have this feature and we find that it really helps to get more people to call your business from the mobile version of your website.
Those are some of the most important steps for what to do on your website to make your website mobile-friendly. if you follow those 5 steps, you’ll definitely get more calls and leads from your pest control website.
