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?
Why is a responsive website better than a mobile website?
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?
