The Importance of Responsive Design

Basics of Responsive Design

Responsive website designs are a custom solution for your client’s various viewing platforms.

This ever-changing world demands websites that adjust to different viewing devices. Fully responsive websites will adapt to different screen sizes without loosing their design integrity.

Approximately 68% of all searches are done on a handheld device.  In other words, more searches today are being done on a table or smart phone versus a laptop or desktop.

—But don’t take our word for it, look around. You’ll see people surfing the net on handheld devices everywhere you go.

Why Make Your Website Responsive?

For the Customer with Multiple Devices

A design that looks nice but differs on various viewing platforms is not good enough. For example, customers might first visited your site on a laptop, then show their neighbors on a tablet, and finally on a smartphone in your store. During all of their visits, your website’s look should remain consistent.

A differing design or separate websites can lead to client frustration as they try to relearn how to navigate your site. It could also make your brand feel disjointed.

A responsive design, however, will allow your clients to seamlessly transition from all of their devices with your flawless design.

To Show Your Target Market You Care 

A responsive design means you thought of all your target market’s needs, regardless of the device they choose to use.

Let your clients skip the frustration of fumbling around a design that isn’t prepared to fulfill their screen size. Allow your user to easily navigate your site without worrying about zooming in or out on a website’s text or images.

This is a convenience that is often overlooked until you have to go through the hassle of actually adjusting their field of vision to read a website’s content.

The more frustration and obstacles a non-responsive design creates, the more likely your target market is going to leave and find a better user experience with a different and responsive website.
