Mobile Responsive Website

The Scoop on Why You Need a Mobile Responsive Website

Make the move to a mobile responsive website.

How many of you are constantly glued to your phones? That’s what we thought; this tech era has left flip phones and outdated websites in its wake, welcoming in apps, mobile responsive websites, and new digital marketing methods. While you, as a business owner, may be convinced that your marketing is on point, have you considered your web page? If you don’t have a mobile responsive website, you could be missing out on a lot of business.

When websites aren’t mobile-friendly, they not only cause a headache for users to scroll in and on, but it means that the business loses potential clients. A responsive website is critical to your marketing – here’s why!

Accessibility. The website is the core of your online presence, therefore, if a user finds your site difficult to navigate on their phone, they’re likely not to spend time trying to figure it out. By making your webpage easier to use on cellphones, tablets, and laptops, you’re essentially allowing your webpage to be visible by all who visit it – without any hassle!

Time. Time is of the essence, right? The recommended time that the content above the fold on a mobile device should load is under one second, while the entire page should load in under two seconds. When a user has to wait too long for a page to load, there’s an extremely high chance that they’ll leave your site.

SEO. Believe it or not, but Google prefers responsive web design over mobile templates. Having one single URL makes it easier for Google to crawl your site, allowing it to rank higher and perform better.

While you’re at it, take a look at your website? Does it need an upgrade on design, content, and mobile responsiveness? That’s why our team of web designers and developers is here.

What To Expect From The New Facebook Mobile Layout

When people want to find out more about you, they typically head straight to your Facebook page, not your Twitter or website. To help you make the best first impression possible, Facebook recently unveiled new features, including a new layout and moving avatars, helping your profile become more engaging on mobile platforms.

The new profile videos are short video clips that can be up to 7 seconds and play in a loop when someone visits your profile. The videos can be shot with your mobile device and help to make your profile more interactive and less static. The profile videos were added to address the increasing number of videos that Facebook users were creating and posting to their profiles.

The new motion avatar is not the only change that Facebook is making. A refreshed layout is also coming to your mobile device, putting the profile video or picture in the center of your profile, instead of off to the left, and enlarging the picture to make it easier to see. A new customizable space has also been added the top of profiles that allow users to put whatever information they want to let visitors to their profile get to know them a little better. Users can add various content to this new portion, including a one-line bio, work and education information, and so on.
