What Is Mobile Web Design?
A mobile web design is a form of web design that makes a site look and function well on mobile devices, such as smart phones and tablets. Because people interact with websites differently on mobile devices as compared to desktops or laptops, a mobile web design is necessary to fulfill the growing consumer demand and expectation for user-friendly mobile websites. The cornerstone of ACS, Inc. Web Design & SEO’s mobile web design process is the application of a responsive web design. A responsive web design is responsive to the display size of the device, meaning the website’s design self-adjusts to feature the best display for the device being used.
To better understand mobile web design, it’s necessary to understand that a site that is made using a responsive web design is optimized for use on a phone or tablet compared to how the site would appear on a desktop or laptop. Our mobile web design solutions are developed with an intense knowledge of how people interact with mobile websites, maximizing accessibility for your customers’ or clients’ unique needs.
With 31% percent of people preferring mobile devices as their go-to way to get online (according to the Pew Research Center), coupled with the reality that 60% of all web traffic comes from mobile devices, a professional websites that don’t have a mobile friendly design provide a bad first impression and an irritating experience for a significant number of your potential clients or customers.
Is Mobile Web Design Helpful For Customers?
ACS, Inc.’s mobile web design solutions make your site user-friendly no matter people’s preferred device for web browsing. On the internet, impressions are made in milliseconds. People tend to visit a site less often if it’s only 250 milliseconds slower than a competitor’s, according to the New York Times. Considering the large, increasing portion of people going online with mobile devices, companies that don’t have a site built with a mobile web design are at a competitive disadvantage.
Through detailed, expert page speed optimization, ACS, Inc. provides all of our web design clients with a professional mobile web design that minimizes load times, ensuring your potential customers or clients can focus on what you’re offering rather than being frustrated by slow load times and blank pages.

Make A Good First Impression With Mobile Web Design
Websites that don’t have a mobile web design can be frustrating to interact with. Often, pages are difficult to get to because links or buttons are too close together, causing repeated clicking to the wrong site section. Without a mobile web design, users may need to manually zoom in and out to find what they’re looking for. Doing business with a company whose site doesn’t feature a mobile web design can turn away potential customers or clients, as evidenced by the fact that 61% of mobile device users are more likely to leave sites that don’t have a mobile web design if they can’t immediately find what they’re looking for.

How Does A Mobile Web Design Affect Your Position On Search Engines?
On April 21, 2015, mobile-geddon hit. Mobile-geddon is the change to Google’s ranking algorithm for mobile searches, which causes sites that aren’t mobile-friendly to rank lower on mobile search results. Considering that 79% of people who use a smartphone use their device for online searches, coupled with the fact that over 80% of smartphone users perform pre-purchase research online, this ranking change significantly impacts on the online visibility of businesses who don’t have a mobile web design.

Can Mobile Web Design Save Me Money?
Some web design firms attempt to sell separate mobile web designs alongside a desktop site design, considering mobile websites require a different look and feel in comparison with desktop designs. These separate designs are used because people interact differently with websites when on a desktop compared to when on a smartphone or tablet. However, approaches that utilize a separate mobile web design come with the cost of designing two different websites. ACS, Inc.’s mobile web design solutions provide a single site with a single design at the cost of one website. Because our mobile web design solutions utilize a responsive web design, your site is made to look and work equally well on all devices.
