Your small business’s website is like a virtual business card, that any person can access at any time in order to learn more information about your services. Therefore, it is important for the website to have interesting content with an eye-pleasing layout and beautiful graphics. But have you ever wondered which device your clients display your website on? Many business owners focus on making sure that their website looks great on a computer monitor, while forgetting that less and less people access websites through PCs or laptops. Although using a computer is more comfortable for work related activities, many people prefer to surf the web on their cell phones or tablets due to their small size and mobility. Responsive Web Design is the key to excellent user experience on any device.
Everyone loves smart phones and tablets!
Since these small devices have functions similar to PCs or laptops, their possibilities are endless. The number one advantage being that they support web browsers, allowing users to visit all kinds of websites.
However, this could lead to a problem…
Choose Responsive Web Design!
If you don’t take it into account when building your website, the site will look messy on every screen that is smaller than a computer monitor. Unfortunately, some websites displayed on small devices can be disproportionately stretched out. Of course with the help of your fingers, you can adjust the size of the website on your smartphone to make it smaller. However, by making it smaller, the content will no longer be legible. This will force you to return to the disproportionately stretched out website and having to constantly move the site around with your finger, in order to read the entire content.
Is this the sort of website that you’d want to visit again in the future? Me neither!
More and more people use smart phones and tablets to surf the web, due to their convenient smaller size and mobility. Why turn on a computer, when you can use your smart phone at hand, which quickly connects to any nearby Wi-Fi network or your own data transmission provided by major cell phone carries. Responsive web design is the answer to all the above mentioned problems. It allows your website to adapt to the device your users are viewing it on. Users will be able to comfortably access your website without getting frustrated that not all the content is loading properly and you will have the certainty that your website looks exactly the same on every device.
Why have to worry that your website might look like pieces of a mismatched jigsaw puzzle on every device besides your own computer?
