To put it very simply, responsive websites are those that adjust to the screen they're being viewed on. Years ago this was a luxury but today this is a necessity. Mobile phones are now responsible for more internet use than desktops.
Have you ever visited a website on your smartphone that wasn't responsively designed? It's a nightmare. Most people won't stick around for long once they realize that the only way to read anything is by pinching and zooming around. As a matter of fact Google will now penalize your ranking if your site is not considered"mobile-ready."
Here at Gordo Web Design we believe that a website that doesn't look great and isn't easy to use on any device, in 2015, is unacceptable. We pride ourselves on using best practices and industry standards such as HTML5 to make sure our finished products look great on any device.
Many of your potential customers may not have access to a traditional desktop or laptop. It is essential that they quickly and conveniently are able to learn about your products and services in a manner that is convenient to them, on whatever device they may have.
