Why Having a Responsive Website is Important

More people are now using mobile devices for every part of their daily lives. For companies that want to stay competitive, it's critical to have a responsive website. As the role of mobile devices continues to explode for both personal and professional use, companies need to employ strategies that broaden their reach by making a website accessible to all mobile users.

The Benefits of Responsive Design

According to Marketing Land, there are 3.65 billion global mobile users. Potential customers choose to access your website in a variety of ways. As a part of multi-channel marketing, it’s crucial to have a web design that reaches your target audience and works on all devices such as desktops, laptops, netbooks, tablets and cell phones. A responsive website makes this possible.

A responsive website adapts to the screen size, orientation and resolution of the mobile device it’s rendered on. This flexibility presents mobile content in a clear, readable and easy to navigate format. Without a responsive design, the text, images, and layout of your website may appear distorted, illegible or muddled on a mobile device. This results in potential customers quickly moving on to a competitor’s mobile-friendly website.

An attractive design that displays correctly increases the amount of traffic to your website. For continuity, you want your website to look the same on all devices so as not to confuse your customers.

With a responsive website, your company remains current with the evolving technological advances of mobile devices. You also have more marketing options with a responsive website. Mobile marketing is becoming a standard part of any company’s marketing plan. A responsive design improves the effectiveness of your marketing campaigns and improves the return on investment (ROI) of any marketing strategy.

"We hired Eric to help CSU-Global Campus build out a new website as our previous one had many issues. Eric listened to our needs, helped us shape the frame for what we wanted, and built it out exactly how we had hoped for. He was efficient and responsive to our needs and changes for the website but while teaching us our to help ourselves with small edits. After the successful launch of the website, we have kept Eric on board for his help in other areas because he is so knowledgeable, friendly, and quick to respond. I would highly recommend Eric to any business who has a need for web services."
