Q?

Are their risks to avoiding responsive web design? What are they?

A.

Mobile devices aren’t going away. Adobe did a study in March that concluded tablet web traffic eclipsed smartphone traffic. From a device perspective, it’s becoming difficult to differentiate between a tablet and phone. Phones are getting bigger; tablets are getting smaller. There are over 4,000 different devices running the Android operating system each with a different resolution. By trying to target specific devices or pixel resolutions with your content, you risk alienating some users.

Q?

How does responsive web design impact the effectiveness of email marketing?

A.

Recent studies show over 40-50% of email is now opened on a mobile device. To have the email formatted correctly no matter where it’s opened and read is key to delivering your message.

Q?

How does responsive web design impact digital marketing channels like SEO?

A.

Google has officially supported Responsive Web Design as the preferred method for supporting mobile. Think about it. If every site out there had a desktop view AND a mobile view, search engines like Google would be indexing the same content multiple times. It would get confusing. Sites using Responsive Web Design have one URL therefore search engines will index the content only once.

Q?

How does responsive design benefit me?

A.

A nicely designed responsive site is transparent to someone viewing the site on their phone or tablet. End-users shouldn’t have to know anything about responsive design. All they know is they're having a great experience.

Q?

What is responsive web design?

A.

Responsive Design  is a method of constructing websites and applications in which the layout automatically conforms to the resolution of the device accessing the site. For web developers it allows us to support one code base instead of creating a separate views from mobile, tablets, etc.
