A Timely Warning for All Businesses

2015 is just around the corner and if you don’t already have a responsive website design, your company could be in big trouble.  By 2015 all businesses that rely on the internet will need a responsive website, because it really is the way of the future.

What is a responsive website?

It’s a website designed to modify itself to perfectly fit the screen depending on what kind of device a person is accessing it by. Have you ever accessed a website on your smartphone and it’s so large, you have to move it around your small screen with your finger to even access the navigation bar? Then it wasn’t designed as a responsive website.

If a person can’t open your website on a smartphone, iPad, laptop or desktop computer without it looking like it was designed for the device they are accessing it by, and navigation or reading body copy is difficult (i.e.: they have to zoom in or out to read text or it doesn’t look like the same website design they can access via the internet), you’ve lost a potential client in about 2.5 seconds. If it’s all too hard, they’ll go looking somewhere else.
Even if we can’t convince you to upgrade your website, perhaps the fact that everyone else is getting theirs upgraded to being responsive should be motivation enough. After all, do you want to be the only business in the world that hasn’t redesigned their website to be accessible by all devices? If you don’t switch now, you’re going to be left out of the running.

More than 4.3 billion people worldwide use their phones to access the internet which is expected to grow to over 5 billion by 2017. Surely, that’s proof alone that having a multi-device friendly website is the way of the future.
