If you are building a new website or redesigning your old one, it's time to consider a responsive design. Mobile and tablet usage has increased significantly and according to Gartner Reports, usage will continue to climb. Research shows that people are shopping via their tablet devices in the evening hours more and more. Of course, the user experience needs to be tailored to these devices in order to optimize engagement and conversion rates. In addition, there are SEO benefits and maintenance efficiencies with responsive design versus having standalone mobile, tablet and desktop websites.
Web development will take longer for a responsive website because you have to design and plan for each of the break points for mobile, tablet and desktop. However, you will easily earn this back from the SEO and maintenance benefits.
