Why Responsive Design is Important!

Having a mobile responsive website is not just another option—it’s a requirement! Read about the importance of  responsive design

 Can you ever recall trying to view  the shrunken version of a desktop website on your phone?  Where you had to pinch and zoom just to see anything. Think back to how you felt and how long it took you to get what you wanted on that website. It was likely not a pleasant experience.

Now imagine how your client would feel and behave if they were in your shoes.  A website needs to be user-friendly on any device including smartphones. If not, your business may be losing out on leads and sales.


The Facts

To ensure your website offers an experience tailored to handheld devices (without creating a separate app), you need to have responsive design as a  solution.

Did you know that:

  • 40% of users have gone to a competitor’s website after a poor mobile experience.
  • Over 60% of searches online now come from a mobile device.
  • Websites not optimized for all these smaller screens can experience a decline in their search engine rankings. This means that they are not getting found online!
