RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN

All-Platforms-ExampleWhy You Need a Responsive Website
With a huge increase in mobile traffic from tablets and smartphones, you may be losing a large amount of traffic if your website isn’t optimized for mobile traffic.

Even if your website loads fast on a mobile platform, it’s still not enough for a visitors browsing experience on their smartphone or tablet. Instead of creating a separate website for the tablet and smartphone visitors, use a responsive website design instead.

 

What is Responsive Website Design?
Responsive web design is implementing the design of a website for an optimized point of view.  It allows the user to easily read and navigate your content without having to scroll or resize the window. Instead of having a separate website for different platforms, have one website that “responds” to the platform and user accessing the site.

 

Why a Responsive Website Matters
When someone visits your website from their computer, and wants to revisit it on their mobile device, they expect to get a similar experience. Consumers expect the same experience on all devices, and it’s your responsibility to provide it to them.  In this day and age, if a visitor can’t find what they’re looking for form you fast enough, and in a format that they can easily read they’ll happily go to your competition.

 

Visitor Retention
From different screen sizes, Internet browsers, and operating systems, to different hardware from smartphones, tablets, and laptops, the consumer is your main focus. In order to keep a visitor returning to your website, you not only need great content but a responsive website that adapts to their changing platforms. Almost everyone out there has more than one device they can browse the Internet from, and a responsive website that responds to mobile as well as desktops is necessary.

 

The Future
As current trends show, mobile traffic isn’t slowing down anytime soon and neither will desktop or laptop traffic. It’s no fad and responsive web design is the future.
