Research has shown that people around the word are accessing the web via their mobile devices more often than ever. In 2013, 17.4% of web traffic are actually from mobile phones and tablets.
The above chart from Statista gives us a better idea about the difference between year 2012 and year 2013.
So, there is no doubt, the mobile web era is coming.
Getting a website does not only mean that getting a website for computer users anymore. you need to be aware that your potential customers might be using a cellphone or tablet to visit your website. If the site is totally a mess when displayed on their small screen mobile devices, you might lose them then.
So, there are a couple ways to develop a mobile friendly website. The first solution, developing a mobile App. Getting a mobile App for your company is always a fancy thing. Most people would like to have a mobile App but there is a major problem: the price is too costly. The second solution is create a separate mobile site for your website. normally this mobile site's domain will start with a "m." which indicates that you are browsing a mobile version page. But again, getting a separate site cost more money, and the loading time of the page will be long since it needs a redirect at the beginning to take visitors from your original site to the mobile site. The third solution is using a responsive CSS to recognize the current screen and change the display layout of the site to suit every screen size. This is called responsive design.
By using a responsive design, you only need to keep one website, which can be displayed nicely on an iPhone or other mobile deceives. you don'e need to spend extra money on developing a new website version or creating a mobile App. also, when you need to make some updates on your site, you only need to update one site.
