In the above example, you can see, the design is seamless; easier to navigate, and comprehend.

Create a mobile app

According to smart insights, mobile apps projected to generate 188.9 billion U.S. dollars in revenues via app stores and in-app advertising.

But if you want to boost sales by encouraging sales, you need to have a mobile app.

There are top three reasons why small business owners should have a mobile app.

One-click checkout

One-click checkout is a process which enables customers to make purchases with a single click just by entering the payment details.

Amazon is already embracing it.

When someone decides to buy from your website, don’t make them travel the whole universe. Come straight to the point. Give an easy checkout process or just one click checkout. Having an efficient checkout process will increase their chance of converting.

It is difficult for people to fill the information on mobile and tablets. To buy something, people have to fill name, address, mobile numbers, mode of payment and other important details. But it really gets difficult for them to fill these fields in a 4-inch screen.

Eliminate steps which aren’t absolutely necessary to complete the purchase. Each added step will reduce the chances of conversion.

Learn from their consuming behavior and based on that give them incentives to entice them to buy. When your strategies are getting the desired results, you can then consider going for a mobile app.
