Over 40% of online retail sales are now made via mobile devices (source: IMRG) and from 21st April Google will begin to prioritise mobile-friendly sites in its search rankings, so it’s more important than ever to go mobile.
We offer a number of different mobile-friendly solutions for online retailers, including eCommerce stores with responsive and/or adaptive designs, and more recently we’ve also launched our new fixed format mobile sites – an affordable option for retailers that have a Visualsoft desktop site.
We’re also really pleased to announce that we can now design and build native iOS mobile apps for retailers with stores on our platform – an ideal option for those looking to build and retain customer loyalty. Shoppers can download our store apps directly onto an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch (running iOS 6.1 or higher), browse complete product ranges, be the first to know about special offers, and easily purchase items via PayPal Express Checkout.
Tim Johnson, Chief Sales Officer at Visualsoft, says: “With more and more customers choosing to ‘swipe and shop’ from their favourite stores, we’ve developed our own app solution to make sure the retailers we work with don’t miss out on the mobile boom. The first iOS app we’ve built on behalf of one of our clients – Dollywood Boutique – is now available on Apple’s App Store and we’re looking forward to launching many more in the coming months.”
