Responsive Web Design

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Mobile phone technology and usage has grown enormously over the last few years, and it is important for your business to be accessible to as many potential clients as possible. It is widely accepted that mobile access to the Internet is due to overtake desktop access sometime during 2014.  One option may be to develop a mobile application to allow mobile users to access your site. However this may be be an unnecessary expense for many small to medium businesses.

Another option is to build a responsive website. This will allow one website design to serve all users, whether they are using a smartphone, tablet or desktop PC. It is basically a design that detects the users device, and serves up the desired content depending on the screen size. A responsive design will allow your existing or potential clients to access your business more easily.
