What is responsive website design and do I need it?
Responsive website design is a great advancement in web technology spurred on by the creation of mobile devices. Today, more people are accessing the Internet through tablets and smartphones than laptop and desktop computers. This all happened in just a few years.
As a response, website developers started building mobile specific websites which meant a business would essentially need 2 websites, one for computer visitors and one for mobile visitors. This forced businesses to fork out a few thousand dollars more to meet the needs of technology….until Ethan Marcotte came along and solved the problem of needing a website for each internet browsing device.
The key ingredient to responsive website design is a fluid grid. Essentially, this allows a website to size fluidly according to the visitors device. No matter what browsing device the visitor is on, the coding arranges content as needed for a better user experience.
Our responsive websites cost slightly more, but greatly increase your market visibility. It means you are reaching the other 1/3 of users arriving to your website through mobile devices.
