Resizing a website to read different sections can be a frustrating experience. Especially trying to use small buttons that were designed for a mouse rather than for a finger on a touchscreen!
A poor mobile experience like this can turn a prospective customer away and make them wonder how you manage other parts of your business if you can’t get your website right.
It’s pretty clear that consumers are increasingly using mobile devices to shop and compare. Responsive web design provides a consistent cross-device experience for users in the ever-changing landscape of browsers and screen sizes.
So what is responsive web design? Simply, responsive web design allows the creation of a website that reformats its contents or responds to whatever device it’s being viewed on.
