Did you know that 21% of Australians only access the internet on their mobiles? And 74% of Australians rely on their phones at least as much as their desktop computers when searching for information, ideas and advice?

In other words, if your website isn’t mobile friendly, you are potentially turning off a big portion of the market (if you aren’t missing them all together).

If you've been reading our articles or doing online research for some time, this might seem like old news. After all, marketers and web developers have been talking about responsive websites for a good five years now!

However, a 2016 survey of 3,400 small businesses in Australia, Canada, the UK and the US found that 60% of small businesses still don't have a responsive website.

If you're one of them, here are five statistics that demonstrate why it's time to upgrade to a responsive site.
