What’s Responsive Design?

It’s just a simple fact at this point. Mobile devices like smartphones and tablets are quickly taking over as the device that people are choosing to surf the internet with. Checking emails, using social media and online shopping are all made easier and more efficient when you don’t have to be stuck at a desktop to do so. It is because of this that it is incredibly important for your website to have a mobile responsive design.

What is responsive design?

This is when your website can be accessed from any device, and maintain the design of the  content, images, and structure regardless of device. There’s no zooming in, zooming out or moving the entire screen all around to search for what you’re looking for. A mobile responsive site gives your visitors a beautifully constructed design created especially for their device.

Here are some very valid reasons for making sure your website is mobile friendly.

People are choosing their mobile devices more and more.

Just look around and you’ll agree that more often than not, people are on their mobile phones. They socialize through them, they conduct business through them, and they shop on them. So, why not make their experience on your website a pleasant one? Google says 61% of users are unlikely to return to a mobile site they had trouble accessing and 40% will visit a competitor’s site instead. If these statistics are not enough to make business owners run to the nearest web designer, check this one out. A CMS Report states that 57% of users say they won’t recommend a business with a poorly designed mobile site. Yikes!

Your visitors deserve a better user experience.

The ease of a professionally produced website and mobile design contribute to your visitors overall experience. You want their entire visit to be painless, efficient and even fun. Anything that hinders this process greatly diminishes their feelings about your company. Do not give them any reason to entertain negative thoughts about your business, including any troubles they may encounter when accessing your site through a mobile device.

Stay ahead of your competition.

Based on statistics and reports, it is probably safe to say that your competitors are not making use of responsive designs. This means that they are losing out on potential customers. Make sure that you are ready to greet these customers with open arms and a mobile friendly site.
