While the growth of mobile and tablet is not a recent phenomenon, this year for the first time many brands will experience more mobile than desktop traffic. When the shift to mobile first occurred, brands were following the visitors, but not the dollars. With mCommerce conversion rates at one-third of desktop’s rates, and mobile approaching more traffic than desktop, the urgency to follow the dollars is critical.
