A Bit About Responsive Web Design!

Responsive Design. The saviour of modern web
design? Or just another piece of techie jargon that web designers
bandy about a bit? Well, to be honest it is a bit of both! Responsive
web design is an important process in the evolution of the mobile
internet and, quite frankly, it’s something you should definitely be
considering for your website! Read on to find out why:

First off, what is responsive design?

A responsive website is constructed in such a way
that all of the content, images and structure of the site remains the
same on any device. For example, when a user accesses a site on their
desktop, they are getting the full view of the site. But when that
same user goes to visit the site from their smart phone or tablet,
the site will retract to fit. A responsive website ensures that your
site runs properly on any device.

Mobile internet usage has sky-rocketed over the
past few years, yet still the vast majority of business websites are
still not designed to be responsive, which can equate to a lost
business opportunity.

A responsive website is critical to making you web
marketing work, and here’s 5 reasons why:

1. Speed is the key!

Responsive media is not just a trend any more, it
is a must. One of the key reasons for this is the speed at which your
customers can access the information on your site. Slow to load,
unresponsive sites won’t hold the attention of your buyers and they
will be back on the search engine homepage before yours have even
loaded on their phone.

2. Stay Future Proof!

Mobile technology is evolving rapidly. If you have
a responsive site that works well across the multitude of existing
devices on the market, its pretty safe to assume that it will work
just as well for some considerable time to come. So, in the future,
as new devices (TVs, watches, glasses, etc.) are being used for web
browsing, your responsive site will still look beautiful.

SEO loves responsive design!

prefers responsive web design over mobile templates. Having just the
one web address (instead
of a dedicated mobile sub domain)
makes it easier for the Googlebots to crawl your site and reduces the
chance of on-page SEO errors. Responsive sites typically out perform
desktops sites and are far easier to maintain.

4. Cost Effective.

sites may take a little longer to develop in the first instance, but
they survive for longer. Also having a more unified approach means
management, support and upgrades only need be applied to one place.
All this saves time and money

5. Improve conversion rates.

responsive, easy to use site provides a better experience for the
user, regardless of what platform they use to view it on. If they
enjoy using your website the first time, they are more likely to
return and engage with you again.

Green Tornado offered a supportive 1:11 service, the have been amazingly patient with us, our new website looks absolutely brilliant - the care and attention put into helping us get it right was far beyond what we could have asked for. We will definitely be using Green Tornado again for future requirements. We are more than happy to recommend the team at Green Tornado and look forward to working with them again.

I've been working with Green Tornado for just over 5 years. In that time they have designed countless flyers, posters, product labelling, newsletters and other promotional stuff that my business required. Most importantly they understand my brands' 'vision' - possibly better than I do myself! All the work produced is fantastic and of very good quality. Over the years I've had some pretty tight deadlines but they've never been missed. Would definitely recommend!

We were a start up company when we started to work with GT and I have to say they have been so tolerant and helpful From us not actually knowing what we needed to not knowing what we could actually afford the team were supportive and understanding. They have helped us at short notice , which , to be honest must drive them mad because we still do it now years down the line , yet time and time again they deliver . I send over ideas and they turn that into an amazing finished product , they have , without doubt , helped our company grow . I have no hesitation at all in recommending them and I will never be going anywhere else , they know our company and what we want to portray and have taken the time and made the effort to get to know exactly what we need and want - you can’t put a price on that !
