Responsive Web Design
Responsive web design means your website adapts automatically to display on different sized devices. It means that more people can see, and interact, with your content.
People are five times more likely to leave a mobile site that isn’t mobile-friendly.
What is Responsive web design?
Responsive web design is where a website automagically adapts its layout to suit different screen sizes, e.g., desktops, smartphones, and tablets. The layout remains legible regardless of the device your visitor is using. Think of it as one site fits all.
Given that more people use tablets and smartphones than desktop computers to access the Internet, this is a key consideration if you’re a website owner and you don’t want to prevent anyone from being able to read your site.
Is responsive web design important?
Well, yes it is. More now than ever, actually. The major benefit of having a responsive is that you don’t have to create multiple versions of a website, nor do you have to spend extra convincing your audience to download a native app.
In fact, did you know:
– 65% of local searches are performed on mobile devices
– 85% of smartphone users use their phones to browse the internet at home.
– There are currently 17.5 million mobile internet users in the UK
So, it’s not really a “nice to have”, it’s more of a must.
I’ve already got a website, can you responsify it?
I can certainly have a look! Often, older websites have been constructed in a way that made it complex to turn it into a responsive design so a rebuild may be required, but that may be an opportunity to freshen up your site so, no bad thing.
I’m happy to have a look and give you my opinion and don’t worry, I’d rather sell you nothing at all than something you don’t need.
