Responsive Web Design

Responsive web design can transform your company’s website into an attractive, user-friendly space that captures the attention of your prospects and engages them in your products or services.

But as much as responsive design visually engages your prospects and customers, what’s also important is how its technical aspects fulfill the arduous requirements of Google and the other search engines.

What Is Responsive Web Design?

Put most simply, responsive design responds to the user’s screen, whatever size or type it may be.

Today, your prospects and customers may find your site with their smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. But they might also find you while browsing on a game console, their Apple Watch or an internet-connected TV. Virtual and augmented reality devices are starting to grab a slice of the market as well.

Whatever device visitors use to find your site, responsive design adapts to the constraints of that device quickly and seamlessly. This provides visitors to your site with an exceptional user experience (UX), where they can read text, view images and navigate the site’s pages easily. This flexible approach to website design also adapts to different browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.) and platforms (Windows, Apple/Mac, Android).

It’s important to note that responsiveness doesn’t simply mean shrinking or expanding the site to fit a screen. Instead, a responsive design rearranges key elements of the website to meet every demand of the user’s device, platform and browser.

Why Do You Need a Responsive Website?

Today, mobile technology drives the majority of consumer behavior. In fact, a whopping 66 percent of the world’s population uses a mobile device — an 80 percent increase since 2012.

In North America, mobile accounts equal 106 percent of the population (exceeding the total population because many users have more than one mobile account). More than half of today’s internet searches are conducted from a mobile device. In fact, some statistics estimate that number is approaching 60 percent. Americans spend an average of more than four hours per day on the internet, more than half of that time via a mobile device.

In fact, you have about eight seconds to make an impression once a visitor reaches your site your site. If your site is slow to load, they may never get there at all.

If you care about SEO and where your site falls in the search engine results, responsive web design is not an option. Google, anticipating this exponential growth of mobile use, began pushing websites to adopt responsive design in early 2015. Today, unless your site is optimized for use on mobile devices, Google won’t include you in mobile SERPs.

How to Get a Responsive Design for Your Website

Unless you are an experienced programmer, the technical details of responsive web design can be mind-boggling.

Responsive images and typography, JavaScript media inquiries, progressive enhancement and high-performance HTML/CSS code are just a few of the technical requirements of responsive web design.

“They’ve narrowed our focus to local audiences. Be Locally reoriented our Facebook ads toward traffic generation, rather than likes and shares. The team has also managed my monthly spend, written articles, and resized photos.

Rankings have increased and remained stable. Traffic and social media outreach are also higher. They’re responsive, but also genuinely interested in my business. Meeting only once a month is convenient.”

“Be Locally SEO is easy to work with. They’re thorough, and we can always get in contact with a team member. If a report doesn’t make sense or we need something clarified, they sit down with us and talk about it. The whole team is very responsive, usually responding within 24 hours. If we have any errors or need the website updated, they’re quick to fix them and make the necessary changes. Not only are their fees reasonable, but they’re customer-oriented instead of just worried about their bottom line.”

“Be Locally SEO has been a bit of a gem for us as they are our Jack-of-all-trades for our website. They’ve helped us migrate to WordPress, build out our content, create highly functional features, integrated our site to our Marketing Automation, AND of course improved our SEO nationally and regionally. We have yet to present a project that they couldn’t handle with a great end result.

Having used several web service companies in the past, BeLocallySEO has provided the best value by a long shot. We have a very attentive account manager and their turn-around times on projects are second to none.”

I have seen more movement in google organic search in few months with Be Locally SEO than with any other company I have worked with. In addition, our account manager continually is heavily involved with my account trying to find ways to improve our online marketing campaign. I appreciate his personal attention to my online marketing needs. I highly recommend Be Locally SEO for online internet marketing!!!”

“Be Locally SEO practically saved our business! We had been advertising with for years when they did a system conversion December 2015. We immediately informed them that we weren’t receiving any calls from our website – months and months this went on with no improvement, then one day I heard a Be Locally SEO ad on the radio & set up a meeting. Be Locally SEO’s technicians were thorough in identifying the multiple problems with our Dex advertising and there were many! They were truthful about what needed to be done to rectify the situation and realistic about the time it would take to get things really working again. They were with us every step of the way in a very personal and professional way. Today our phones are ringing, our prior customers and referral customers can find us and our business is thriving like never before with new customers. Thank you Be Locally SEO for helping our Salt Lake City, Utah and Riverton, Utah based family business and thank you for being so patient with those of us who don’t understand the way internet marketing works. You really educated us!”

“After trying some other website design and SEO companies, with limited success. Be Locally SEO designed us a wonderful, very functional, e-commerce website. It is fully integrated with Quickbooks and looks and works great. Their SEO services have taken us to the top! They also write very good blogs. Thank you Be Locally SEO!”

“If I had to rate them on this from one to ten, I would say ten. They always respond very quickly and I can always get a hold of someone, even when our account manager is unavailable. We communicated with them on a monthly basis at the beginning of the project and scaled back as we progressed. At this point, I only call them when there’s a specific concern or request. We now rank first on several relevant Google search terms, and our website looks more professional with the changes they made. Listen to the advice that their team provides and trust their expertise. They offer several service packages to fit your needs, but there’s always room for adjustment throughout the project.”

“We’ve been using Be Locally SEO for around 5 years and can attest to their competence, professionalism, and ability to generate income for our business. We highly recommend working with them! I’ve worked with vendors in the past that fail to honor their commitments, but Be Locally SEO consistently delivers on their promises. They’re also willing to go the extra mile. They worked with our software developer to incorporate the website’s quote program, even though that went beyond their responsibilities. Similarly, they went out of their way to find a reliable resource when we requested a Spanish-language version of the site.”
