Designing Responsive Websites
WHAT IS A RESPONSIVE WEBSITE?
Responsive Web Design is where the website will adapt to different screen sizes. Whether you are viewing the website from your phone, tablet or laptop, the site will still look great!
WHY IS HAVING A RESPONSIVE WEBSITE IMPORTANT TO YOUR BUSINESS?
As of 2019, slightly more than 80% of adults in North America own a smart phone and most internet access is made through some type of mobile device. If viewers of your website have to pinch and zoom to view content from their device, you are losing visitors and their business.
Providing an optimal viewer experience on your website is important to retaining visitors to your site. The longer a viewer remains on your site, the more likely it is that they will contact your business, or in the case of ecommerce sites, make a purchase.
Users will leave your website within a few seconds if you do not provide them with an easy to navigate, legible to read, interesting to view site. Google logs viewers who visit 1 page and leave your site as Bounce Rates. Too high a percentage of bounce rates, suggests to Google that people are not finding what they are looking for on your site and then decreases your website traffic. And, in addition to loosing leads from Google, almost 60% of internet users will not recommend a business they have had a poor mobile website experience with, meaning you are losing out on referrals as well.
