Responsive Web Design
Responsive Web Design is one of the most important things you can do to improve usage of your website. Each user, regardless of the browser or device they are using, deserves and expects to get the best in their user experience. The excuse that they are using a mobile device or tablet, or a browser that is different than that on which your website was designed, is no longer acceptable. The rate of growth that has happened in the mobile market is stunning. Today as much as 50% of all users are viewing your website on mobile devices or tablets, and if history is any way to judge what the future will hold, then this number will surely increase. So many of you have great looking websites and believe that is all you need to attract new customers, where in fact you’re only kidding yourselves. Remember the old saying, “beauty is only skin deep”, and in the website world this is especially true.
If your website is more than 3 years old or you had it designed by a firm that did not advise you as to the benefits of responsive web design, consider this your advice. The very nature of the internet is one of constant change, and keeping up with it is imperative to staying competitive, especially when it comes to usability. While your website may be intuitive on desktops and laptops, this must carry over to the mobile and tablet user as well. The bigger companies are acutely aware of this and have staffs that are dedicated to advancing their websites, and responsive design is no longer the exception but the rule.
If you have not addressed the issue of responsive design with your web design firm, than you’re wasting valuable time in reaching the audience that is looking to do business with you.
