Responsive Design: Get the Whole Picture

Posted by: admin • 17 Jun, 2013 0

More than 25% of the website traffic comes from mobile devices. Cisco predicts a 13 fold increase in mobile data traffic by the end of 2017.

A hefty traffic increase is to be expected in the future. Mobile users are increasing every month.

Can you afford to ignore the new mobile world?
Would you rather give your clients only half of the picture with your conventional website or provide them with the entire picture, a feature rich website that will mould to the size of their device screens?
You can do this by designing a separate mobile website or an app or by simply implementing a responsive design website. Which option is best for you?

Responsive design makes it easier for mobile users to view and navigate the site in their mobile devices.

Functionality
A responsive design website reduces the number of bounces – users leaving your website after the first page – by as much as 70-80% simply by re-organising the website content to make it more readable. It provides the user with the same functionality they would get on a desktop or a laptop without leaving out the “calls to action” so important to you, the seller.

Last but not least having only one website, the responsive one, instead of two – desktop and mobile – improves your search engine ranking as the traffic is no longer divided between sites.

The responsive design allows website owners to focus visitors on only one website and one version of URL only. This gives more effectiveness when tracking visitors.

Implementation
For most of the existing websites moving to a responsive design is the same as re-designing the site from scratch. If you have a website that is 2-3 year old you should consider at least refreshing its look and feel. While doing that, ask your provider for a responsive design. It might be slightly more expensive but the extra cost will quickly be offset by reduced maintenance costs, increased traffic and better conversion.

On the other hand, a responsive website would set you back a lot less than the apps you need in order to provide the same functionality.

Maintenance
When it comes to website maintenance, a responsive design beats the mobile website and the apps hands down. Updating a well-designed responsive website is as simple as making the changes in one place instead of 2 or 3 and if you have a content management system supporting the design, you can update the content yourself in a flash.

Responsive websites enjoys low maintenance cost, increased traffic stats and better conversion rates.

Conclusions
The responsive web design is, without a doubt, a feature rich, cost effective solution that ANY website owner or webmaster should consider.
