The Importance of Having a Responsive Website

Do you keep hearing the term Responsive Web Design but you’re still not certain as to what it really is? RWD (Responsive Web Design) refers to the actual approach in which a website is laid out and the coding that goes into the framework of the site. Both of these components play an imperative role in providing an optimal experience for all viewers on a desktop, tablet or mobile device. Living in a digital society means taking the rights steps to ensure that your website is not only easy to navigate on all types of devices but also that the scrolling, panning and resizing is spot on.

When users go to visit your website on something aside from a desktop computer, they want it to be an enjoyable experience. Users are looking to find the exact information they would find on your site on a desktop right on their mobile device or even on a tablet. A responsive website should and will automatically adjust itself on various devices, these elements include: any text, pictures, video and navigation elements. The less zooming and searching around for the viewer means better end results across the board, it should  not have to take users several minutes just to zoom in close enough to read the text, try to search out the contact information and finally find a phone number 6 clicks in.

Internet traffic coming from mobile devices is growing exponentially, each day, more and more people are using their cell phones to do their banking, shop, communicate and pay their bills- hence why it’s so important to make sure that your website is responsive. It may seem a little daunting to have to pay a little bit more to ensure that your site is responsive or that your mobile site is setup in a fashion that makes it extremely simple for users to navigate but the cost is absolutely worth it and you will see that it can pay off in the long run. Imagine for a moment that your website was not responsive and that a potential client/customer went to visit your site on their mobile device… it was not easy to find what they were looking for, the search took forever and now the user is so frustrated that they simply close out your site, go to one of your competitors’ sites which is responsive and bam, just like that you lose a potential customer.
