Catering For Mobile Is The Way To Grow Your Business In Africa
Numbers don’t lie, and when it comes to Africa, the next big global growth market, mobile is king. Africa already has 122 million active users of mobile financial services, more than half the global total.
The number of smartphone connections is forecast to double from 315 million in 2015 to 636 million in 2022 â€” twice the projected number in North America. Over the same period, mobile data traffic across Africa is expected to increase sevenfold.
With these impressive stats in mind, and the exponential growth ahead, it is wise for businesses to ensure they are set up to benefit from this section of the market by catering to mobile users.
One important way to do this is by ensuring that your business’ website is built in a responsive way, which means that it is not developed only to work well and look good on a typical computer, but on a mobile phone and tablet as well.
