Get smart when it comes to these common mobile myths. Read on to discover how, as a Vizlly customer, mobile optimization is within your reach!
Myth 1: Mobile optimization isn’t important for hotels.
The stats don’t lie, we’re increasingly attached to our mobile phones. In fact, 79% of smartphone users have their phone on or near them for all but 2 hours of their waking day (IDC Research). We use mobile phones to buy coffee, check Facebook, get directions and even make the occasional phone call, so it’s no surprise that travel shoppers are using mobile devices to research and book hotels.
Research shows that 61% of consumers who land on a website that’s not mobile optimized will leave it in search of a site that is (Google). Properties that aren’t optimized are missing out on bookings from these devices. Mobile optimization isn’t the future for hotels, it’s the present.
