Responsive Websites - What Are They?
So what do we mean by, “responsive websites“? Simply put, responsive websites are those which detect the screen size of the site visitor, and adjust the site content to fit those dimensions automatically. For example, a non-responsive website will be normally very hard to read on a tablet, with the font size being VERY small, and images too big too fit the width of the tablet or smart phone screen.

Our Approach to Responsive Websites
As with all our services, we start with an initial consultation to get a better understanding about your business, what you like about current website(s) & what you don’t, and your objectives.
- Develop a separate mobile-site (cheapest & quickest)
- Re-develop your primary website (Google-preferred)
If you’re happy with your current website’s overall “look & feel” – or you’ve recently paid thousands of dollars for the site you currently have – then a standalone mobile-version may be adequate. But if your website is more than a few years old, it may be time to give your online presence a complete make-over… built with mobile devices in mind.
