Fastest Growing Trend
We’ve all been out with family or friends. Someone brings up something they saw online. A news story, a restaurant, an ecommerce site or a brick and mortar shop. Everyone in the group does the same thing; they pull out their smartphone and check out the website. But will they see a mobile friendly website?
No one likes to look at a site on their phone that isn’t mobile friendly website. Most people I know will click off a website immediately if it is not responsive to their phone or tablet. Not only that (or because of that), as of April 21, 2015, Google started using mobile friendliness as a ranking signal. Google users are now able to get relevant search results optimized for their mobile devices.
The fastest growing trend in digital media consumption is the use of smartphones and tablets. In 2014-15 smartphone and tablet traffic was up 394% and 1,721%, respectively. 31% of all traffic to the top 10 digital media properties were mobile visits.
I think it is safe to say that you need a mobile friendly website.

Things To Keep In Mind
As you work with us, or any developer to make a mobile friendly site, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Make It Easy For Your Customer
Your customers should be able to easily do what it is they need to do, on your site. Are they looking for your address? A menu? Maybe they want to read your engaging blog.
We design your site to help your customer get what they came there for. Our goal is to streamline the user experience so they are happy when they visit and engage with your site.
Make It Consistent For All Devices
Responsive web design (RWD) means that the page uses the same URL and code, whether the user is on a desktop, tablet or phone. The display responds and changes to the screen the customer is viewing the site on.
Google recommends using RWD over other design patterns. One of the benefits of using RWD is that you only need to maintain one site. In other words, you won’t need a desktop site and a mobile site.
