How Much Does Responsive Web Design Matter?

By August 23, 2013 Blog No Comments

It’s no secret that smartphone and tablet use continues to increase. As more and more users find themselves surfing and shopping on devices other than your traditional PC, the need for a responsive website is growing fast.

So what is a responsive website you ask?

A website that responds to the device that accesses it and delivers the appropriate output for it uses responsive design. Rather than designing multiple sites for different-sized devices, this approach designs one site but specifies how it should appear on varied devices.

“Day by day, the number of devices, platforms,
and browsers that need to work with your site grows.
Responsive web design represents a fundamental shift
in how we’ll build websites for the decade to come.”
– Jeffrey Veen – Vice President of products for Adobe

 

So what does this mean for you? It means that if your site isn’t responsive, you could be missing out on potential traffic on your site. Your visitors need to be able to navigate and interact with your site no matter what device they are using. No doubt that more and more consumers are making the switch to mobile devices…now it’s your turn.
