Is your website Responsive ?
For most business owners this question may never be asked, but in today’s internet, the answer may mean the difference between success and failure of their online business and overall web presence.
So what does the term “Responsive” mean in relation to your website?
Well, when web developers talk about a website being “Responsive across all Platforms”, we are talking about the coding of the website and its ability to format well across all platforms and devices.
We are talking about the way the website looks visually on various screen sizes that make up today’s collection of devices that people use to access the internet. For example, widescreen HD desktop monitors, tablets and smartphones. And in both orientations of portrait and landscape modes.
As a web developer, I am asked to look at the websites of potential clients who are looking to see if their websites are up to date or need updating. The first thing I check is to see how the website formats on mobile devices like smartphones.
Why is that important? Well as we all know mobile smartphone use is increasing every day, and many people use their smartphones to surf the internet and to purchase products online.
So if your website isn’t responsive and mobile optimized you will miss out on potential mobile sales, especially if your website utilizes a shopping cart system.
However, regardless of what type of website your business has and what functionality it utilizes, the website needs to look attractive and be usable on all types of modern devices used for accessing the internet.
There have been instances where I have looked at websites that looked fine on an HD desktop monitor but were not even usable on a smartphone.
