Responsive Website Design

What is a “Responsive Website” and How Can It Help Your Business?

In the past, people viewed websites mainly on desktop computers where websites had a fixed (or permanent) width to fit the size of the screen. With tablet and smartphone advancements, website design has evolved.

What is a Responsive Website?

Viewing websites on tablets and cell phones is becoming increasingly popular. Responsive websites offer a fluid grid that allows the website to “respond” to the screen size of the device that you are viewing it on. Simply put, the elements of the website are rearranged, or stacked, to fit on the screen so that they can be viewed at a comfortable size that adjusts automatically depending on the device you are using. It even changes depending on how you are holding the device, adjusting the content vertically or horizontally to fill the space well. You don't have to search, scroll or resize to find information.

How Can A Responsive Website Help Your Business?

Viewing websites on tablets and smartphones is becoming increasing popular, therefore it represents a large market of potential customers. Mobile sales are already overtaking desktop sales. Here are a few more reasons why a responsive website can help your business:
  • Google prefers responsive website designs as the industry’s best practice.
  • Responsive websites provide an excellent user experience, because it is easy to view a website from a variety of devices and hand-held positions.
  • Social media is frequently viewed on mobile devices.
