You push, I pull, a response right? Well not exactly. A responsive website is one that reformats it’s content, depending on the device such as a laptop or phone, that the viewer is using. Responsive web design might be the best way to reach the most people. The benefits are many, here are some of the biggest ones…
Design just one website, not several
Don’t worry about leaving someone out
Easy to preview on any device size, just resize your browsing window!
How does all of this work?
Well it is really quite simple. The way web design was accomplished in the past, is the website would determine which browser the user is utelizing. Based on this information, it would direct the viewer to a website properly formatted for that browser. The result is maintaining several different websites, but viewing it can be optimized for each device. Responsive websites really don’t care much about the browser the user is using, just their screen size. Everything on the website is placed in spaces or areas, and depending on your screen size, these are simply re-arranged. Furthermore, the host stores several sizes of each photo, logo, etc, resizing these appropriately to fit any sized screen.
Do I need to worry about mobile devices?
Absolutely, today we find that around 30 percent of viewers on our network, are using mobile devices. Not having a mobile site doesn’t ruin you, just makes it a little more difficult for your viewers to read your content. Furthermore, we find that when sites do not have mobile or responsive sites for smaller devices, the average visitor spends about 40% less time browsing. That means they miss something they are really searching for.
Let’s make it responsive!
No matter what you do, having a website is very important. Thinking about how your viewers will be reading your content, needs to be a priority in your web planning and design.
