Why Responsive Web Design Is For You! – An Infographic

It’s no secret that mobile web browsing has become the next “big thing”, as smartphone market share continues to grow at an astounding rate. Yet how many of you have been frustrated when you’ve visited a website on your phone where you need to scroll left and right on the screen and zoom in and out to read it. Let’s not forget about those times when you’re trying to click on a link but hit the one below instead because the link is too small to click on accurately.

Do you think it makes good business sense to frustrate potential customers before they’ve even started dealing with you, or would it make more sense to make their initial dealings with you a smooth and joyous process. Do you want people coming to your site, getting frustrated and carrying on their merry way without you? We say that any business who has potential customers should think seriously about having a professional mobile web presence…and if you’re quick, you can do it before your competitors catch on and grab your customers from right in front of you.

Mobile-friendly web design options

There are a few options for solving the issue of mobile-compatibility. Responsive web design, separate mobile website or dynamically serving different code to users based on their device. In a responsive website, the layout adapts to fit different screen sizes, so the website will look good on all devices, and it will be easy for users to read and navigate the site. A separate mobile website (usually on a subdomain, such as http://m.yoursite.com) is completely separate from the main website, it’s stored at a separate URL, and is designed specifically for certain screen sizes, often serving different content to mobile users. Dynamic serving is where the servers different html to users at one URL based on the device, meaning a lot of additional code is needed.

We believe responsive web design is the best answer in most cases…funnily enough Google agrees! We could write a very lengthy article arguing our case, however with the amount of information that the web throws at us everyday, we figured you might like it in a format that’s easier to digest. So we created this infographic on why we think you should choose responsive web design for your website. Hopefully after reading it you’ll all be on the same page!

A few web design projects that we've completed for our happy clients recently!

Praise From The Clients We've Worked With

Don't just take our word for it!

Just want to thank you and your team sooo much again for all your hard work and support in building our online ticketing system. It’s so different for me not feeling stressed about ticketing issues this year and it’s so much easier for the customers to use, and us to manage, so you really have done an amazing job! Also for keeping up the communication, I really appreciate it!

Miriam Cuffe Abbey Medieval Festival

We didn’t like sending people to a separate website to book our tours. The integration of the Rezdy booking system into our web design has been awesome!  

Dessray Colledge Brisbane Whale Watching

Redeveloping our custom, responsive website has been a smooth, reliable and successful venture working with Karl at Static Shift. The communication from Karl and Karen was regular, detailed and clear. The resulting website meets all expectations. The website is running smoothly and much more efficiently than our previous design and is a lot easier on our server resources (which was a big problem with our level of traffic). Karl has a can do attitude, which means that all custom changes that we wanted were implemented to achieve the result we were looking for. We would definitely recommend using Static Shift.

Tanya Burgess Baby Hints & Tips - Australia-wide

As my hubbie is a webmaster and I must say a bloody good one at that…I can confidently say the site is excellent…even he reckons it’s fabulous and he is a critical bugger!

Peter Power St Helens Chamber Of Commerce - Tasmania

I got everything that I expected and much much more! My subscriptions to the page have increased by 400%, my SEO is always increasing and the feedback that I receive from current clients and new clients is nothing but exceptional!

Adam Murphy Adam Murphy (Keynote Speaker) - Adelaide

The team got straight to work; their patience with our indecision about how we wanted the site to look was very appreciated, Karl often giving great advice on making the site as professional as possible. We are very grateful to have come across Static Shift, the team’s ongoing help and support has been fantastic, they are always quick to respond with any concerns or queries. Thanks Karl and the team for your ongoing support, you really have been great!
