“Responsive website is no longer a luxury. It’s a necessity”
The top 4 questions about Responsive Website Design
Responsive website design [RWD] is a web development approach to building a website that is simply able to adjust to whichever screen size it is being viewed on. This provides an optimal viewing capability and enhanced the user experience for potential customers who will be visiting your website from a Smartphone or mobile device.
So with a non-responsive website, if someone was to view this from a mobile device or a smaller screen, they would often have to zoom in to read the text and click on links. A non-responsive website leads to a frustrating user experience and causes a lot of people to quickly leave in favor for websites that are mobile friendly.
According to Google:
- 48% of users say they feel frustrated and annoyed when they get to a site that’s not mobile-friendly
- 36% said they felt like they’ve wasted their time by visiting those sites
- 52% of users said that a bad mobile experience made them less likely to engage with a company
- 48% said that if a site didn’t work well on their smartphones, it made them feel like the company didn’t care about their business
In the already competitive world of online marketing not having a responsive mobile website could mean the difference between you and your competitors.
Responsive web design is achieved by a web developer including instructions (or lines of code) to re-size the web design relative to the size of the device it is being viewed on. There is a multitude of different screen sizes across phones, “phablets”, tablets, desktops. Screen sizes will always be changing, so it’s important that your site can adapt to any screen size, today or in the future. In, responsive web design, the layout changes based on the size and capabilities of the device. For example, on a phone, users would see content shown in a single column view; a tablet might show the same content in two columns.
The use of mobile devices to surf the web is growing at an astronomical pace, but unfortunately, much of the web isn’t optimized for those mobile devices. Mobile devices are often constrained by display size and require a different approach to how content is laid out on screen.
This means that businesses with a mobile web design are likely to receive a higher proportion of traffic from search engines than those who do not. Ultimately an increased volume of traffic will result in an increase in sales and leads for your business. According to eConsultancy 70% of companies that designed a website specifically for mobile had increased sales
