In this day and age, where mobile devices seem to be found in the pocket of almost every man, woman, and child, websites aren’t viewed the same way. Years ago, the majority of website were viewed from desktop computers on large monitors. A display of grandiose size with which to market one’s brand. However, there is no guarantee any longer that a desktop computer will be where a possible client researches your services and products. In fact, more website views come from mobile devices these days than they do large computer screens.

Very simply, when you are choosing your next website design and website design company, it would be in your best interest in order to achieve a greater ROI, to choose a company like One Spark Media that understands the importance and has the experience in building websites that utilize Responsive Web Design.

Responsive Web Design is a method of designing and building a website that can be viewed accurately from any device, regardless of the size of the screen. So basically, whether your potential customers are viewing your website content from an iPhone 4 or a 32″ monitor, they will get the full experience of what your website offers without having to worry about trying to zoom in and out or scroll every which way. Responsive Web Design uses careful styling, media queries, and even Javascript to help make sure that your site gets the attention it deserves, regardless of the device.

Not only are there obvious advantages to RWD for your site viewers, as we have already discussed, but there are advantages for your business as well.
