Responsive Website: All You Need to Know

Website Design Nigeria

If your business has a website, you’ve probably been hearing a lot about responsive design lately.

So what is a responsive website?

A responsive website is a single website that adapts to any screen size. It’s as easy to use on mobile as it is on tablet and desktop – no pinching or horizontal scrolling required.

The design instinctively adapts to the device it is being viewed on so it looks great on a mobile, tablet and desktop.

Why do I need a responsive website? 

If your website is not mobile-friendly then it will not be easy to view by the 38 million smart phone users in the UK, which could be losing you Responsive website designers in nigeriavaluable custom.
60% of people won’t stay on your site if it’s not mobile-friendly
67% of people are more likely to buy a product or use a service from a website that is mobile friendly
This is why Google ranks mobile-friendly websites above non-mobile friendly websites.

Why is a responsive website better than a mobile website? 

Responsive websites work effectively whatever device they are viewed on and all website pages are always available.
Responsive websites load faster than a mobile website – saving valuable seconds.
Google says, ‘40% of people abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load.’
A single responsive website is more effective and less time consuming than a desktop and mobile website:
– 1 site to update.
– 1 site to optimise for search engines.

How mobile responsive affects development cost

While it is rapidly becoming the standard, mobile responsive DOES increase the number of hours, and the skill level, put into both design and development.

So expect it to cost a bit more than a standard, non-adaptive website, say 20-25%.

But if having to pinch and zoom and scroll and email a link to themselves causes you to lose a client – isn’t it worth it?

Have you taken your website responsive? Have you seen benefits from the change?
