Smartphones have revolutionized the way we interact with the society. They have become an important of our daily lives and people are depending a lot on their smartphones and apps to manage their daily tasks. Businesses are pushing hard to make their space in people’s phone via creating business apps and mobile sites to adjust them in this evolving trend.
Where smartphones made people’s life easier, it is also changing the way people shop and browse online. According to IMRG stats, 7.7% of visits to UK e-commerce sites came from mobiles in 2011, accounting for 3.3% of all purchases.
This may seem low, but though most have seen the light, not every retailer has launched a mobile site or app. For those companies with more forward thinking mobile strategies, the gains are there to be had.
This infographic from IMRG and eDigital Research contains some great stats on m-commerce growth from 2009 to 2012.
What do you like to shop or browse on your mobile?
I mostly look for books and music.
Music and movies
Some very interesting stats to consume. Will be interesting to compare in another 12 months the differences and if businesses have adapted to the mobile trend.
mcommerce surely makes our lives simpler. The last thing I remeber was sending a gift to my nephew on his birthday.
