When creating a website, it’s important to think of your audience and what way they’ll be connecting with you: will they glean information from your site from home? The office? On their smart phone while on the run?
Websites re-size for different devices, and it’s important your website is it’s best version for every customer…whether their accessing your site from their desktop, iPhone or tablet.
What is a responsive website?
Having a responsive website means the code, or the language, that is written to tell the page how your website should look to a viewer will adapt to any and all screen sizes so the website content and look won’t change.
A responsive website allows the layout of the page elements to grow or shrink based on pre-determined maximum or minimum page widths, which are based on cross-platform devices your customers may be using.
Ensuring your website is responsive means your site won’t need to have a mobile-only website for mobile browsers on smartphones, which will have a different look than your full website. Because mobile screens are smaller and often shaped longer than they are wide, websites must re-organize how they display information which can result in some graphics or information being lost.
Having a responsive website is important for your business to ensure your customers get the full experience from your website by having it optimized for users on any browser or device.
Why should I have a responsive website?
With the future in mobile technology, we want to ensure your website is responsive so your business’ customers will be pleased with your site and their ability to find information easily. Without a site that’s easy to use on the customers’ favourite device, they may leave for the competitor whose website is easier to use.
