Responsive Web Design

More than 50% of traffic to most websites is now from mobile devices and that figure is growing all the time.

The reasons are obvious….

  • High quality smart phones with fast connection speeds
  • High traffic drivers such as Facebook and Twitter apps
  • People require information whilst on the move

With this in mind it is important to think equally if not more about the experience your website visitors get whilst on mobile.  Today we design all websites with responsiveness in mind.  A responsive website adapts to the device being used but retains the identical content and structure at all times.  This means you can post, tweet or email a promotion and regardless of the device the user will see that same content, but formatted correctly.  Also when your users share content from your website the same applies.

From a search engine perspective Google now ranks responsive website higher as of April 2015.

To make a website responsive either requires a technical review of the website design and coding or a redesign.  A redesign is also a opportunity to re think site structure and core message.

How do I know if my website is already responsive?

Very simple, if you are on a desktop browser then shrink the size of the browser window and you will see the page reformat to suit the width.  Try it with this page.  You can also use Google’s free tester

At your request FUSIO can quickly carry out a review of your site and supply costings for different options.
