mobile responsive web design

In the ever changing world of technology it is important to keep your business at the top of its game. In 2015 51% of people spend nearly 6 hours a day looking at their mobile phone! So if you cannot reach your target audience through their mobile then you are losing out to your competitors.

What is a mobile responsive website?

When a website is mobile responsive, the layout adapts based on the size of screen they are presented on.  There are generally four different sizes of screens that can be used for a mobile responsive website design, these are a widescreen desk top computer screen, a laptop or smaller desktop screen, a tablet devise and a mobile phone.

So in essence having a mobile responsive website allows your customers to search for you and look at your website wherever they are and whatever device they are using.

How can I get a mobile responsive website?

Firstly, check whether your website is already mobile responsive. How do I do this? Just simply look on a tablet or mobile phone and see what your website looks like. Do the elements change slightly to allow the mobile user to have an easy friendly experience or do they need to zoom in and move around to try and read what is on there? If it is the latter then your website is not mobile responsive.

Next you could get in touch with a website designer and talk through your options. If you have a website build on WordPress it might be a case that you just need to change the theme or you might need a re-design but don’t despair there is an option out there for you.
