The move towards mobile
With mobile web browsing accounting for almost 20% of all web activity and rapidly increasing, your online content needs to look great and work flawlessly on smartphones and tablets too. This is where responsive web design (RWD) comes in.
What is a responsive website?
A responsive website can detect what type of device a visitor is using (e.g. a mobile or an iPad) and 'respond' by adjusting the design elements accordingly.
For example, buttons may become larger on mobile devices to suit a touch screen interface. Page load times may be reduced to make your website work better on slow mobile internet connections.
Solutions to your problems
- Visitors leaving your website because it's too difficult to interact with? You need: faster load times, an easy-to-use interface and optimised navigation
- Potential customers abandoning their baskets due to over-complicated procedures that just aren't suited to slower mobile internet connections? You need: a quick, easy-to-use checkout process and a simplified product catalogue
- Missing out on potential customers because your site only works well on certain devices? You need: to maximise your company's online reach with a responsive website that's accessible on all major mobile platforms and devices

Better for search engines and users alike
Google recommends responsive web design over separate desktop and mobile versions. Responsive websites are easier for Google to crawl, which can help the search engine index more of your site's content (more details here). Your customers or clients win too, as it is easier to interact with and share content from single-URL responsive websites.
