From restaurants to hair salons, many business owners are not keeping up with the changing tech and what hurts the business owner even more is the loss of revenue!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
With all the changes with search engines and mobile devices, a website needs to be designed to work on any device. This is achieved while the website is being built using CSS and HTML to resize, hide, shrink, enlarge, or move the content to make it look good on any screen.
The bottom line is that the user can have a good experience on your website using their smartphone. In the end, if they can reach you quickly and effortlessly, you have most likely have a new restaurant visitor or are selling your product to a new customer.
All our sites, from one-page starter sites, restaurant sites, all the way to multi-page ecommerce shops are made using Responsive Design. They will work on any device such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. We guarantee a Google Mobile-Friendly test of 95% or higher making sure that the user can use your mobile site with ease connecting them to you with no issues and at the same time, your new mobile site looks great!
One of the worst things that happens to me while looking for a restaurant online with my phone, is pressing on the phone number and nothing happens.
Studies show that a new visitor on your site will not put up with dead links or content they can not get to while looking for your business. You only have a few seconds to engage the user and get them to commit to you. Being able to understand your content, easily tap or scroll through the site and ultimately contact you is the job of a mobile-friendly site.
Take the time to look at your existing website. Does it resize itself to fit into the devices screen? Can you navigate to other pages easily? Can a potential customer reach you with a single tap? If your website is not built with Responsive Design then most likely mobile users are passing on your site, passing on your business. As of October 2015, Half of all Google customers Worldwide are using mobile devices to do their searches.
