11-Essential-Facts-And-Figures-About-Mobile-B2B-Website-Design.jpg

The average UK household owns 7.4 internet-enabled devices. In many instances, a prospect may visit your website on their desktop or laptop and perform follow up research on their smartphone device. The days of desktop-only internet browsing are well and truly over. Based on authoritative sources, statistics and facts – learn why mobile B2B website design has become a necessity.

Prospects and your competitors prefer mobile optimised sites 

  • B2B sites which transitioned to responsive design experienced an 11% drop in bounce rate – the longer a prospect is on your site, the higher the chance of lead conversion.
  • 81% of websites currently use responsive design – Prospects have been conditioned to expect responsive design. If your site fails to deliver this expectation, chances are, prospects will visit a competitor.

A large proportion of your traffic comes from mobile devices

  • 90% of business executives use smartphones to research business purchases –  Mobile visitors are more likely to be free from distractions and more action-orientated, making a purchase more likely.
  • 18% of 18-34 year olds are mobile-only web users - The Millennial generation represent the current and next generation of workers. In the next few years, mobile use is likely to eclipse desktop among this generation.

Websites that haven’t been optimised for mobile are harder to navigate

  • 44% of people struggle to navigate on smaller devices – responsive design automatically adapts to fit a prospect’s specific screen size. 

Mobile optimised sites increase the chance of lead generation

  • 67% of users are more likely to purchase a product or service from a mobile-friendly site – Simplifying forms and navigation menus, while making buttons easily clickable, removes any barriers that stop your prospects becoming leads.
  • Websites that have been optimised for mobile triple their chances of increasing their mobile conversion rate to 5% or above – With mobile usage accelerating, the opportunities for lead conversion cannot be ignored.

Sites that haven’t adopted a mobile optimised site are penalised

  • Sites that haven’t been optimised for mobile have experienced a 10% decrease in traffic and 35% drop in visibility – This is a direct impact of Google’s mobilegeddon update, which penalised sites that aren’t mobile optimised.

Why you need responsive design 

Responsive design works by using CSS to change the way a page is rendered on different devices and screen sizes. On smaller smartphone and tablet screens, a responsive site retracts and rearranges elements of a site for easy viewing and usability. 

When choosing your strategy for mobile optimisation, there really isn’t any competition. For a cost-effective, simple and future-proof design – you need a responsive site. With smartphones and tablets set to be the first choice device for 50% of users by 2018, the time to adopt responsive design is now.

designing a B2B website for lead generation

This is an inline guide purely for the editor, it will not show in the final blog, designed to assist you with setting the options below in the 'Gate Trigger' section.

You will not be able to use the WYSIWYG editor for this it's code only so follow these instructions carefully.


Button
We cannot use a standard call to action to open the rest of the content, but we do want to track when someone clicks on the button to read the rest of the blog. Here's what the code should look like:
<a class="gate-trigger-button" href="#" id="11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design - Read the rest of the post" title="Read the rest of the post">Read the rest of the post</a>


Survey
Instead of using a button, you can ask people a what their intent of being on the blog is. Here's an example.
<h3 style="text-align:center;">Ready to read the post?</h3>
<p style="text-align:center;">Great, just let us know why you're here today</p>
<ul id="survey">
<li><a href="#" id="11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design">Answer One</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design">Answer Two</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design">Answer Three</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design">Answer Four</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design">Answer Five</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design">Other</a></li>
</ul>

If you want to connect what the user selects in the survey with the call to action at the bottom, use the following:
<ul id="cta-list">
<li><a href="#">CTA One</a></li>
<li><a href="#">CTA Two</a></li>
<li><a href="#">CTA Three</a></li>
<li><a href="#">CTA Four</a></li>
<li><a href="#">CTA Five</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Default</a></li>
</ul>


Form
We need to add the same form for each blog, you can if you want to make your own form but you'll need to change the formId which will be in the URL for the form e.g. https://app.hubspot.com/forms/145288/ee2dd282-1afb-4040-b67a-6ea2fe6e32cc/edit:
<script charset="utf-8" type="text/javascript" src="//js.hsforms.net/forms/v2.js"></script>
<script>
hbspt.forms.create({
portalId: '145288',
formId: 'ee2dd282-1afb-4040-b67a-6ea2fe6e32cc',
css: '',
onFormSubmit: function($form) {
gateTriggerForm('11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design');
}
});
</script>


CTA Form
If people are clicking the CTA but then not filling in the form on the landing page they're being taken to, it may be worth loading the form on the same page to see if that helps the submission rate:
<div class="cta-form-image">
<a class="cta-form-image-button" href="#" id="CTA Click - 11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design"><img alt="Title of the CTA" src="https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/145288/hub_generated/resized/21421668-c868-457c-8f68-142438f1e246.png" title="Title of the CTA"></a>
</div>
<div class="cta-form-inputs">
<a href="#" class="cta-form-inputs-close"><i class="fa fa-times" aria-hidden="true"></i></a>
<script charset="utf-8" type="text/javascript" src="//js.hsforms.net/forms/v2.js"></script>
<script>
hbspt.forms.create({
portalId: '145288',
formId: '80edeb18-6298-4325-9d45-eb64c02b2d1c',
css: '',
onFormSubmit: function($form) {
gateTriggerCTAForm('11 Essential Facts and Figures About Mobile B2B Website Design');
}
});
</script>
</div>
