With smartphones and tablets increasingly becoming the preferred choice to access the internet, it warrants a big change on part of businesses as well. Earlier, enterprises could get away by developing applications built for a desktop web browsing experience. However, the modern customers demand accessibility from any device, anywhere, anytime.
To tackle this problem, separate websites were built for mobile devices using the ‘m’ subdomain of the main site. While it solved the problem for businesses, it also resulted in increased workload for website administrators due to the upkeep of two websites. So, what is the best way out? Responsive website design with a ‘mobile first’ strategy- in essence it means a website which ‘responds to’ any device trying to access the website.
The ‘mobile first’ design strategy is built on the assumption that your website is primarily accessed only by a mobile browser, and larger elements are loaded only when accessed by a web browser. The ‘mobile first’ approach enables organizations to have only one common website which displays all the content across a spread of devices. Using progressive enhancement techniques such as CSS3 media queries, content is customized to the device. These queries help by providing the capability to change sizes of elements on a website.
Having a responsive design is critical for businesses today. A responsive design, apart from providing users an intuitive mobile experience, also increases page loading speeds on mobile browsers. Moreover, a responsive website increases the likelihood of appearing in search engine results. A responsive design should make for a big part in your SEO strategy. It also simplifies site maintenance for system administrators.
