Any professional web designer knows that a responsive web design is a must for modern websites. However, in reality, not all website owners are ready and/or eager to add the responsive mode to their website’ toolkit. “Why neglecting a responsive web design means going downhill?” and “How can your website benefit from small-screen devices?” are the two questions that we want to cover in this post.
In short, a responsive web design is a set of tools that allow your website to look smart on any modern device. It means that regardless of how big a screen of that device is, your prospective online visitor will have the smooth experience while browsing your website. As this data from the responsive website infographicbelow demonstrates, the share of the traffic coming from devices other than a desktop computer was already 54% in May 2017. In other words, a number of users of small-screen devices is constantly growing, and responsive web design may be your best business investment this year.
If when reading this post, you start wondering how you can get a responsive web design too, then here is great news. There are two ways to make sure that your website follows the latest tendencies in the web design in terms of being responsive. One way is to hire a web agency. The agency can either come up with a mobile-friendly version of your website or develop a mobile app (for more details on the difference between the two options, see the section below).
Another way is to opt for website builder templates that are already 100% responsive. This is a perfect way for non-programmers who do not want to bother with details about a responsive web design. Usually, with pre-populated website templates, you can see right away what your future online project will look like on modern devices. To do so, just switch between different modes, i.e. a desktop, a tablet, and a mobile (horizontal and vertical options) in the live demo.
