Responsive Web Design
When built correctly, a website is one of the most important and influential marketing tools your business can have. A website allows your message to be online around the clock, and working for you. If you are going to invest in marketing, a website should be your #1 investment. We think a website should be well-designed, professional, easy to navigate and should be easy to find online, especially to someone searching for your product exactly.
Web Design for Multiple Devices
Mobile phones are now counting for over 60% of your website traffic, so it's time to get with the times and get a design that works for mobile phones or even retrofit your current website. You may have heard buzz words like your current website is not "mobile friendly" or "responsive". What is responsive web design?
"Responsive web design is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones)".
This type of design can be called a variety of things including: Mobile Friendly Web Design, Responsive Web Design, Adaptive Web Design, Mobile Website Design, Elastic/Fluid/Flexible Web Design.
Why Mobile Web Design A Must
Just because your current website isn't responsive, doesn't mean it's the end of the world or that you are lacking business. It's just you MAY be losing business because you are not MAXIMIZING the user experience. That's really what it comes down to.
For example, if you pull up your website on your iPhone, do you have to turn the website horizontal, or pinch your iPhone close up to read the text or click on the small links? If yes, then your website is probably not responsive.
Google is even indirectly saying that mobile-friendly is important. Just take a look at when you search for something on a iPhone. There is a tag right under the website .com name that say "Mobile-friendly". Google also lists it in their Google Webmasters Tools speed tests and mobile usability tools which is another indirect way of saying that SEO MAY just be impacted by mobile design.
