Your webpage is your online calling card. It’s the first place most people go to learn more about you and make hiring decisions. You want decision-makers to see your site and think you’re the perfect fit for their event. To make
sure that happens, your site needs to look great on
More than 55 percent of web access today comes
from mobile devices, not desktops, and that percentage is growing. That means a decision-maker is more
likely to look at your webpage on her smartphone
than her laptop. So the question is: How good does
your site look?
Your clients aren’t the only ones looking at your
mobile site. Google is, too. In November 2016,
Google moved to a mobile-first index. That means
Google looks first at your mobile website for page
ranking, then at your desktop website for additional
support. Since this has just started to roll out, now
is the time to make sure you’re prepared.

a few years ago, today it could hurt your webpage ranking
in Google—and hurt your wallet, too!
Mobile-responsive websites are the better choice. Font
sizes, photos, and even layout automatically adjust to fit
the available screen size. From phone to tablet to desktop,
a mobile-responsive site always makes you look good.
