A website with an innovative design and high performance will achieve a high conversion rate. You must create a contextually aware, flexible experience for visitors to your site. Innovative design keeps users engaged with the content, increasing the conversion rate and reducing the chance of abandonment.
In today's mobile environment, more than 64% of users today browse and make purchasing decisions on a mobile device. Mobile web access is a dominating trend in our current internet economy, with many sites now seeing 30% (or more) of their traffic on mobile devices. Your website is part of the guest experience; it is an extension of your Hotel. It is the public’s first glance at what is offered, and your first chance to make a lasting impression. Choosing to offer the public a focused experience makes all the difference to the people visiting your standalone and mobile website.
