If you are searching for a website designer or developer, one of the common words you encounter in their ads/website/sales pitch is “RESPONSIVE WEBSITE”. They would say “We provide responsive websites” or “Our websites are responsive”. Now what do they mean by it? And why is it mentioned so often and given so much emphasis on. Let us explain.
Now first, let’s understand what responsive web design means before getting into the importance of it.
RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN MEANS THAT THE WEBSITE IS DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED TO RESPOND TO ANY SCREEN SIZE, PLATFORM OR ORIENTATION OF THE USER’S DEVICE
In the below image, you can see how the website for Ankura Foundation is optimized for every device and screen size. The design, images, fonts are responding according to the device. So http://www.ankurafoundation.org is an example of a responsive website.
Not every website is responsive and that is what you should be sure of when selecting a website designer. Check their portfolio of work on devices like mobile or tab to see how they appear. Are the headlines appearing as they are meant to be or are they getting cropped? Do the fonts look too big? Are the images too small in height? Is the call to action visible? Because these small things make a big difference!
Check out the statistics in the below infographic to understand how important it is to have responsive web design that adapts to mobile devices.
Now that you know the facts, don’t ignore them. Get a responsive website to get the best results!
