Almost every new client these days wants a mobile version of their website without creating a new one. The solution is Responsive Web Design.
But What The Heck is Responsive Web Design?
It all started with Responsive Web Design, an article by Ethan Marcotte on A List Apart. Essentially, the article proposed addressing the ever-changing landscape of devices, browsers, screen sizes and orientations by creating flexible, fluid and adaptive Web sites. Instead of responding to today’s needs for a desktop Web version adapted to the most common screen resolution, along with a particular mobile version (often specific to a single mobile device), the idea is to approach the issue the other way around: use flexible and fluid layouts that adapt to almost any screen.
Responsive web design uses CSS media queries to serve different style properties depending on the screen size, orientation, resolution, color capability and other characteristics of the user’s device.
Using the responsive web design approach, a web page can adjust itself on the device it’s being displayed on.
Why Small Businesses Need to Switch to Responsive Web Design
More people are using mobile devices. A recent study found that 45% of American adults own a smartphone, and 31% own a tablet computer.
Check your traffic and you might just be shocked at how many visitors are getting to your website through mobile devices. (In your Google Analytics, select “Audience” on the left side, then “Mobile” to see what proportion of traffic is from mobile devices. You can even drill down to see which devices are sending the traffic.)
