What is a Mobile Responsive Website?
Web Design is the process of creating a website to represent your business, brand, products and services. It involves the planning and execution of many important elements to be user-friendly, functional, and to be an effective representation of your brand or an online extension of your office. Having a mobile responsive website means that your visitors will not have difficulties reading texts, viewing product galleries, viewing pricing and comparison tables, reports
A website classified as “mobile responsive” means that the website displays properly on all devices viewing the website. When you have a “mobile responsive” website you do not need a mobile version of your website just to make sure your website loads and appears properly on a mobile device. In essence, a mobile responsive website ensures that you only need ONE website and that you do not need to build different versions of your website to appear properly on different devices.
Google is a big fan of mobile responsive websites. Below is directly from the official Google blog:“Responsive web design is a technique to build web pages that alter how they look using CSS3 media queries. That is, there is one HTML code for the page regardless of the device accessing it, but its presentation changes using CSS media queries to specify which CSS rules apply for the browser displaying the page. You can learn more about responsive web design from this blog post by Google’s webmasters and in our recommendations.
Using responsive web design has multiple advantages, including:
It keeps your desktop and mobile content on a single URL, which is easier for your users to interact with, share, and link to and for Google’s algorithms to assign the indexing properties to your content.
Google can discover your content more efficiently as we wouldn’t need to crawl a page with the different Googlebot user agents to retrieve and index all the content.”

What is the Importance of having an OUTSTANDING website?
People go online and visit websites to learn more about businesses, brands, products and services and to make business transactions. If you do not have a website, it is not a question of if you need one or not, the only question is how fast we can build it! In today’s world having a website is 100% necessary for 99% of all business owners. If you just started a business, a website should have been a part of your original business plan. If you already have a website, it may need some redesigning to improve its performance and to keep up with the times.
Your website is your storefront online and depending on your business model, it may be your only storefront.
Websites (and blogs) also serve as the central hub for online marketing where traffic is ultimately directed to convert into customers. Even social media traffic typically ends up converting into $$ once they hit your website. We use WordPress to build a website because it is the most popular website development platform in the world and will never fall behind the changing times.
All of your online marketing efforts, such as SEO, PPC, and Social Media Marketing will rely on a well-designed mobile-friendly website where your landing pages and blogs are built to convert traffic to leads and from leads they become customers.
