The importance of responsive web design
The idea behind responsive web design is simple: websites should adapt their layout and appearance to fit whatever device they’re being viewed on such as a mobile device. User experience on a website heavily influences the impression and level of engagement a potential patient will have.
Making a great impression online is just as important as when patients walk into your practice. An outdated, busy looking website in today’s digital-crazy world can make or break whether a patient books an appointment or not and may turn them away to a competitor.
The most important role that responsive web design plays, is ensuring that your website is accessible on all mobile devices, screen resolutions, and modern browsers, allowing any prospective patient to reach the contact and info on your website as needed.
What are the benefits of responsive websites?
There are many advantages to having a responsive website. First and foremost, it saves time. The process of creating separate sites for each device is cumbersome and takes a lot more time than building a single site that works across all platforms. It also allows you to create a better overall user experience by making sure content is displayed correctly no matter where a visitor comes from.
As mentioned, a responsive website is much easier to update and maintain. There’s no need to worry about updating multiple pages if there’s any changes made to the code, because everything is updated at once. In addition, new features are easily added without worrying about compatibility issues.
A responsive website is SEO friendly
Search engines like Google understand how to interpret a website’s HTML code and use this information to determine what type of page it is. If a website has been optimized properly, search engines will rank it higher than a non-responsive version. This means that a responsive website will display at the top of search results.
A responsive website is future proof. When designing a website, it is crucial for it to display correctly on every possible platform including having responsive images.
Responsive web design is also becoming increasingly important. In fact, Google recently announced that it would begin penalizing sites that don’t use responsive designs. If you want to stay ahead of the curve, responsive web design should be incorporated now. Using an adaptive design element such as flexible images within responsive layouts ensures that these assets your website appears correctly on all device classes and mobile browsers– especially important with the many different types of phones mobile users have.
