Responsive Website Design

Responsive Web Design CharacterIs your business website truly compatible with smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices? Here’s a free hint for you: Just because you can access it via an iPhone doesn’t mean it’s fully functional for mobile web users… in fact, it probably isn’t, and that shortcoming could cost you a lot of money.

That’s because roughly three-quarters of all Internet users already have mobile access. That includes a large percentage that no longer uses traditional computers at all – a segment of your market that’s expected to keep growing in the coming years. So, you need a website that works for them, or they’re going to take their business elsewhere. But most standard business websites just aren’t geared for smartphones and other small screens. Smart companies have adapted by relying on responsive web design – sites that change and adapt themselves to each viewer, to ensure that every customer gets the right shopping or browsing experience. For example, graphics can be made smaller to save on data plans, text can be sized for easier viewing, and the experience of navigating the site or entering information can be quick and easy.

If you have a website already, it was probably designed with a 10- to 17-inch screen in mind. That wouldn’t fit in anyone’s pocket, but it didn’t have to. Now, though, that “big screen” thinking could be stopping you from finding a new customer and making your next sale, if customers have to scroll, zoom, and turn their phone upside down just to see what’s going on. That means responsive re-designs can make existing sites better and more profitable, and that responsive coding is a “must-have” for any new website. You don’t have to let a traditionally designed website hold your business back. Responsive websites let you meet your customers exactly where they are – which is on the web and on the go, all at the same time!

    When I decided to open an eCommerce business, I knew I needed a professional web designer. A free web page design template was not going to do it for me. I chose Mary in the beginning of my IN2Trees project because she was the one who promptly returned my questioning email regarding web design. She gave me pros and cons about websites and design and how to determine what I needed. She freely answered my many questions long before I signed a contract with her company. I am staying with MaryDesigns because she is a professional who values her customers, listens to them, responds in a timely and professional manner to emails, picks up the phone when needed, and is “there” for me giving the guidance and advice I need. My website design is just what I wanted. Dynamic and not fussy with lots of text clouding my message and my work. The MDcms system is the best tool ever for folks like me who want to have control over their site as far as putting items on and taking them off. I was searching the Internet blind looking for an Indianapolis based web design company. I found MaryDesigns, and, I count myself lucky on the particular Google search! – IN2Trees.com

    “Mary Lewis at marydesigns.com is the only place that I would go to for web site design. She’s been running ours web site for a number of years, making changes, updates and upgrades. We’ve been praised for this web site from a magazine called Auto Inc. and the folks at NAPA AutoParts really love it. For our newest design, we gave Mary a couple of ideas and she created a winner. We’ve been placing high on google search, which in my opinion is really the only one that matters. Every week, people are clicking on our site, printing off coupons and showing up for service. I thank God for this strong Christian business knowing that my interests are in good hands.” – Hill’s Garage
