Can my commercial website look and work great on all mobile devices and personal computers? Is it possible? Is that what Mobile Responsive Design means?
What is it?
The phrase is used by website designers and developers to refer to a site design that works well across a wide variety of mobile devices, laptops and desktops. These devices may vary in operating systems, screen sizes, screen resolutions, and browsers. But the mobile responsive site should perform well on all of them. If it does, one might say it is mobile-friendly.
Why the emphasis?
The power of the marketplace! As more and more consumers adopt smartphones, local brick and mortar businesses are being driven to offer mobile-friendly websites — if they hope to earn that business.
Who are the real buyers?
It’s easy to spot them. They are the ones who know what they want. You see them everywhere nowadays. They are the shoppers with the smartphones and other mobile devices. They are browsing that mobile-friendly website owned by the local merchant that will get their business.
Is your site mobile-friendly?
Fire up your smartphone and browse your company’s website. Go over it in detail. Test everything. How does it look? Is it easy to navigate? Can you find your company address? Your phone numnber? Is there a functioning map? Is the map accurate and easy to use? Or has the time come for you to make some changes?
