We have just received the latest stats for our Tyresales site and they confirm the accelerating trend in smart phone and tablet usage . 34% of the visitors to our site are now using smart phones which is an amazing increase from the 19.8% figure when we first launched tyresales back in January.
We faced a lot of technical problems in converting our e.commerce platform to smart phone compatibility, in fact this task took 7 months, but now that I can see that 34% of our visitors are using smart phones, all I can say is thank goodness we did it! Where will this figure be in one years time?
I guess all of this reflects how the smart phone has become ingrained into our lifestyle. We have probably got Tyresales customers who are placing online tyre orders while they have lunch with friends or while they take the train to work.
The trend to smart phones for all sorts of computing can not be denied; but personally I still prefer using a large screen and a desk top computer. What about you?
p.s. Yes! you can find us on your smart phones and tablets too!
