As an up and coming online retailer, getting mobile is a must. Embracing a new platform and using it to your advantage serves to embrace a new audience and widen your virtual appeal to a larger market. Research suggests that mobile shopping is an ever growing market; in 2011 mobile traffic made up only 6% of global internet traffic, this grew to 10% in 2012 and 15% in 2013. In fact some research suggests that mobile device traffic is set to overtake fixed internet access by 2014. Whether these figures are ambitious or not, this space is growing and online retailers need to be aware of this.
