With this in mind, its so important that your business is fully geared up to handle the mobile user. The first port of call is to ensure you have a website that works flawlessly on all mobile devices. The best solution to this problem is by using Responsive Website Design.

Responsive Website Design

Responsive web design is a method of website development that allows a website to respond to a user’s behaviour and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. By adapting the layout of a website to include flexible widths and clever CSS queries a website can be created that adapts to its environment. In short, as a user moves from desktop, to latop, to iPad, to mobile, the website should automatically change to acommodate the features used. This cuts out the need for a different bespoke design for each device.
