I’m sure many of our readers can remember a time when phones were not smart, tablets were made of stone, and computers were our only access to the worldwide web. But that is no longer the case. We live in a world where technology is always changing. Screens range from the size of your pocket to the size of your television – and everything in between. How can you make sure that the message you want to convey is looks good – regardless of what screen your viewer has?
The best way to ensure that your message is read loud and clear is by having a responsive website. A responsive website is designed to adjust it’s layout to fit different types of screens. This allows your viewers to see your website comfortably, no matter what device they are on.
Is your viewer on a desktop with a widescreen view? Is he or she snuggled on the sofa with a laptop? Or is he or she trying to view your site on a smartphone at the corner coffee shop? If your website is responsive, your site will look great on all these screens.
So, Why Do I Need a Responsive Website?
There are many reasons why a responsive website is important. For starters, having a responsive website likely impacts the way you rank on Google. As they have mentioned before, “responsive design is Google’s recommended design pattern.”
Besides, you want your viewers to have a great user experience, right? If your potential customers are forced to zoom in on a tiny webpage, or is unable to see it all together, chances are extremely high that they’ll look for an alternative website – and will probably land on a competitor’s page.
Is it easy to go responsive?
That depends – if you choose to do it yourself, it could take a great deal of time and energy. You’ll also need to know quite a bit about CSS. Naturally, this option is overwhelming for most business owners. Instead, consider hiring a company that not only specializes in responsive website design, but also knows how to optimize your website for great results on search engines.
