Mobile website design is now called “Responsive” website design. Responsive refers to the way in which a website responds to the user when they are accessing it from different devices.
Can my existing web site be converted to a mobile web design?
If your current site is developed in PHP programming, it can be converted. However, no matter what programming language it was developed in Camrud Advertising will evaluate the possibilities for mobile web design after reviewing your current website.
The complexity of the site, as well as the structure of the pages will determine whether it is cost effective to convert your existing site. Virtually all sites can be converted, it is just a matter of cost / benefit.
It may be beneficial for you to simply copy the current content into a newly developed website design. This is especially true if your current site is not a search engine optimized site.
Is it better to have a separate mobile web design vs converting my current website to responsive?
In some cases a mobile website developer will advise you to keep the sites separate. This sometimes works for pure reader needs, but it is no longer a good idea for achieving top ranking in the search engines.
I work to make sure the user experience is a good one for both mobile users, who are seeking to get to the point without a lot of reading, and desktop viewers.
Let’s face it, content writing has gotten out of control with the sheer volume. Most users now want concise pages no matter the device.
Does it cost more for a mobile developer to create a site that works on both desktop and smartphones?
It does not cost significantly more, but yes, slightly more. This is due to some added planning and testing to ensure a good user experience with the mobile responsive web design I come up with. You can expect to pay about 15% more for a responsive website.
Will I need a separate web design for tablets vs smartphones?
No, a good mobile responsive website developer will code the mobile web design such that it reacts to the width of any screen, and aligns page elements in a pleasing manner.
My friend had a Denver mobile developer create a site in which the user can dial by clicking the phone number. Do your mobile web designs have that feature?
Yes. You may notice the liberal use of phone numbers on this site, and that the numbers at ends of sentences sometimes have a space between them and the period, or no period at all. This is so the number can be dialed on a smartphone.
