Now if you’re like a lot of business owners you’re probably scratching your head and are about to open a new tab and google “what is a responsive website?” Well, don’t open that new tab just yet. I am about to let you in on all you need to know about responsive websites! Keep reading to learn more.

Responsive?

First off, let’s define what a responsive website is. A responsive website is one that can adapt to different screen sizes and resolutions. A responsive site automatically changes itself to fit the device it is being viewed on. For example, if you’re viewing this on a web browser go ahead and drag your window in or out and notice how the content on our site shifts around to fit whatever size you manipulate the window to be.

How Does It Work?

Responsive websites work via media queries and breaking points. When we set up your website, we set up multiple media queries and breaking points. These points are where the content will need to move around the page. At each of these points, we set up a design for your site. The design shows how it should look when the window/screen is that size.

When it comes to breaking points, we use a grid system to define when things on your site will change. Check out the different sizes with pixel sizes below:

  • Minimum: 500px (Portrait Phone Screen)
  • Small: 768px (Landscape Phone Screen, Portrait Tablet Screen)
  • Medium: 992px (Landscape Tablet Screens & Smaller Laptop Screens)
  • Large: 1,200px (Most laptops)
  • Maximum: Anything bigger than 1,200px (Large computer displays, etc.)

Through the use of breaking points, we can adjust your page’s content for not only different window sizes on your computer, but even on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets! Talk about catering your site to your audience!

Why Should You Want Responsive?

If you keep up with technology trends, you will notice that screen sizes are constantly changing! We are continually getting bigger phone screens, multiple offerings in computer screen models, as well as different tablet sizes! Having a responsive website means that your site can adapt to any size screen. Whenever someone visits your site, they can engage with the content on your site with no problems with a responsive site incorporated!

Having a responsive site is also a great thing to have when it comes to your SEM campaigns. Think of it this way, you have 780 clicks to your site from your digital marketing efforts and your site is not responsive.  There is a very high chance that users are not following through with a conversion on your site because it is not formatted to their screen. Not to mention, Google’s Mobile First Initiative is kicking in soon and your m-dot mobile site (ex: m.facebook.com) will no longer meet Google’s standards. Switching over to a responsive site will assure that your site is mobile-friendly and will meet Google’s new standards.

With competition being stiff in your industry, why would you want to lose a sale or client because of your website not reworking itself to meet the needs of the user?
