Why do you need Responsive Website?

According to the recent International Telecommunication Union’s Information Communication and Technology Facts and Figures, the estimated number of mobile subscription worldwide reaches almost 6.8 billion. This simply shows the mobile penetration that exists as of this moment. Another interesting statistic is the increasing numbers of mobile broadband subscriptions from 268 million to 2.1 billion (2007-2013).

With these constructive statistics, it becomes easier to consider having a website that can be accessed through mobile phones. There is a greater possibility of reaching wider audiences through a responsive website. The main reason is that RWD allows a website to respond in different screen sizes, which then provide an easy to access medium.

There are loads of benefits a website can have in dealing with this responsive website design, some of it includes the following:

  • One site for all platforms: It will never be a hassle to decide whether you need a new website for mobile or stick to one website that can be accessed in all platforms. With RWD, the website can be developed in the sense of having it browsed in different screen sizes. Basically speaking, a website can be viewed and be navigated easily.

  • Connections, connections, connections: RWD can give you many chances to be connected with your users even on the go.
