In 2014, mobile overtook desktop as the preferred method of internet access for the first time. Later that year, Google announced they would be giving preferential treatment to websites that they consider to be ‘mobile friendly’. This means that when it was previously only preferable to optimise your site design for mobile users, now it’s a necessity.
A responsive landing page creates an optimal user experience by improving ease of reading and navigation with a minimum amount of resizing, panning and scrolling. Responsive designs allow content to move freely as the pages expand and contract to intelligently fill the corners of the screen, irrespective of what device you’re using.
When a page loads, users form an opinion in only 0.05 seconds, proving that first impressions are key. Since 46% of people using mobile devices report having problems viewing non-responsive sites, not only is it crucial to adopt a responsive design to give a good user experience but also to improve your conversion rate.
