Benefits of Responsive Website Design

Benefits of Responsive Website Design

This has been hailed as the ‘Year of Responsive Design’, and with increasing preference of readers to read news online across multiple devices (i.e. tablets and smartphones), it is becoming increasingly important.

1. Increasing your reach to tablet and mobile audiences

The proliferation of web applications on tablet and mobile devices has been the driving force. Traditionally users would be re-directed to a device-specific site, but now one site can be implemented across devices.

Tablet sales may exceed 100 million this year, meaning that responsive design has never been more important. Some responsive websites are already experiencing up to 40% traffic from tablet and mobile devices, giving a strong commercial imperative to accommodate smaller screens in a unified design.

2. Increase sales and conversion rates

Consistent user experience, devoid of redirections or CSS, will have a positive impact on conversion rates. Responsive design removes many old inconsistencies of multiple sites such as functionality and performance.

3. Consolidate your analytics and reporting

A single responsive site means no longer having to track user journeys, conversion paths, funnels and redirections between sites. Tools like Google Analytics are now optimized to handle multiple devices and responsive reporting. Tracking and analytics will continue to function and be condensed into a single report, enabling easier monitoring and analysis.

4. Increase your visibility in search engines

Responsive Design means you can manage one website with a single set of links. This allows you to focus on link outreach with a consolidated Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) strategy unified across devices. Quality content which is regularly released improves your search engine ranking page positioning. Fewer resources can be wasted in low-level duplication of content across sites, increasing your chances or a higher ranking.

5. Save time and cost on mobile development

Standardized testing methodologies can now be used, removing the development, support and maintenance overheads related to having device-specific sites.

6. Save time and cost on site management

A single administrative interface can easily be optimized, using layout and work flow tools to manage the correct content, or site templates that are being used for different devices.

7. Enhance user’s offline browsing experience

The offline browsing capabilities of HTML5 means that sites can be easily accessed ‘on the go’. Contained in hybrid HTML5 web applications will increasingly be consumed on the move and in the absence of an internet connection.

Conclusion

Responsive design keep you ahead of the trend. The demand for media-rich mobile internet and apps is burgeoning, so several important implications must be addressed – development and maintenance costs, visibility in search engines and better conversion rates. Tablet and smartphone sales are exploding. Responsive design is key, and content consumption on mobile devices will only continue to increase.

      It is my pleasure to recommend Mangat, he is a highly qualified and trained web professional, ethical and an endless worker. While he finds solutions to obstacles presented in transactions, he is proactive, foresees problems before they arrive and recommends a strategy. Mangat is an outstanding negotiator and has great people skills, he is a leader and is involved in multiple activities at the same time, yet he manages to take good care of business and his clients. It has been a pleasure having him on my team for 2 years now and so far we have developed all web projects successfully.
