**If you haven’t gone through the first part of this article yet, it’s advisable to check that out first before going through this one.
In part 1 of this article of this article, we did say that we will come up with an extension ASAP. So here it is as promised.
4. Responsive websites would NOT burn a huge hole in your pocket
Responsive websites are cost-effective in comparison to mobile templates.
That’s because responsive websites are programmed to fit the screens of almost all types of gadgets (This was already explained in part 1 of this article). Thus, it capably curbs the need to have separate websites for individual desktop and mobile users thereby saving a whole lot of money in the process.
Previously, sites developed SOLELY for mobile devices cost you significantly more than the ones designed for desktops. But now it doesn’t even matter anymore. Only one website is enough to do the job for you. It’s convenient, cost-effective and efficient; there’s simply no doubt about it.
5. Responsive websites usually exhibit a faster loading time when compared to conventional websites
As per Google PageSpeed Insights, standards recommend that the content of a webpage above the fold should load within 1 second and the entire webpage should load within 2 seconds for an improved user experience.
This is virtually impossible for the developers to do especially when loading a desktop site on a mobile device is concerned.
Thus, businesses suffered a lot as a result of the same (because when a visitor has to wait too long for a page to load, there’s maximum chance for him/her to leave without further ado). This is exactly where responsive websites come in with their plethora of benefits.
Responsive websites are much faster in comparison to conventional websites. So the odds of bouncing decreases significantly when compared to traditional HTML websites which, in itself, is a good thing indeed.
So is there something not to like? Guess not!
6. Responsive sites are easy to manage
When you have two separate sites for desktop and mobile users, you need two different management plans and SEO campaigns to promote them individually. Now that is a whole lot of work indeed. Simple management of one website and one SEO campaign are far better.
Responsive websites, on the other hand, look as good on a mobile as that on a TV. So as far as responsive websites are concerned, one website and one SEO campaign are more than enough to fulfill all your requirements.
Any changes made on a responsive website will appear on all devices. You don’t need separate admin panels for site maintenance. One would do. So convenience you wanted; convenience you’ll get. You really can’t ask for more; can you?
7. Responsive websites are made for the past, present, and future
The biggest benefit of responsive websites is the fact that the design is based on the SIZE of the screen, NOT the device. This means that no matter what the size of the device screen is, the site will be displayed properly for sure (irrespective of the type of the device).
So, as new devices crop up more and more over time (such as smart watches, smart TVs, Google glasses, and others), your responsive site will look as good on them like that on a traditional desktop PC. If this doesn’t qualify as a benefit, what does?
8. Responsive websites can make your business a standout among the crowd
While there’s no doubt that most major businesses have already shifted to the responsive website format for an improved user experience, but a large majority of small and medium scale businesses are still left to make that transition.
So why don’t you try to get ahead of the competition by being “responsive” to your business prospects? It can definitely help you a lot to survive in the long run.
With that, we’ll bring this article to a close for now. Hope the eight points highlighted in this article (which is inclusive of both Part 1 and 2) come in handy for your business endeavor. Good luck!
