- Smartphone visits increased 84%
- Smartphone pageviews increased 96%
- Smartphone orders increased 101%
- Smartphone revenue increased 79%
In June 2013, mobile devices generated nearly 35% of total online visits (22% smartphones; 13% tablets), a 5% increase from May 2013. iOS continued to dominate, with 76% of smartphone revenue and 99% of tablet revenue coming from Apple devices.
"Mobile is requiring retailers to reprogram their customer experience," said Chris Mason, Branding Brand co-founder and CEO. "With mobile visits on the rise, it is now possible for someone's first impression of a brand to come from their smartphone site."
