Why Do I Need A Responsive-Designed Website?
Responsive website design… what is it and why should I be worried about it? You may think your current website is fine. “My business is on the internet. That’s all I need to worry about.” But then you wonder why the small investment you made (or large one depending on how long ago your website was created) isn’t bringing any significant increase in business. Maybe because your website is not responsively designed. What is responsive website design? Simply put, it is a method of website design/development that changes how things are displayed as your website is viewed on various devices(desktop, tablet, smartphone, etc.)
Well here’s the thing, first off, are you sure your site is mobile accessible? What’s that you say? “I can access my website from my smart phone.” Anytime you have to “pinch the screen” to view the site at a readable size you’re not mobile accessible. Nowadays that’s a BIG DEAL; for several reasons. First and foremost it makes for horrible user experience. No one wants to use a site with bad user experience. It’s a pain to squint or pinch just to see what it is you’re business is providing. It’s time to fix this.
There are over 114 million people surfing the web at any given time; over 91 million of whom are looking for services or product
The internet is a critical communication, marketing, and sales medium for businesses. As of 2017 more people surf the internet from their mobile device vs a computer. For the first time in history mobile devices are being utilized more than desktops. You need a responsive-designed website to help your business succeed.
Are you willing to lose out on all those potential customers because you still have your website from ten years ago that looked awesome then but now it’s kinda fizzled out?
Since March 2018, Google has moved to mobile first indexing of websites.
First thing’s first, your best plan of action is to contact a web designer/agency that specializes in Responsive Website Design.
