In November 2016, more websites were viewed on mobile devices than on computers for the first time. In 2013, it was around just 5% of website views came from mobile devices. That means that if your website was designed before 2016, it is highly likely that your site is not ‘fully responsive’.
These days, our very own statistics show that up to 60% of our website views are from mobile phones, around 10% on tablet, which means just 30% of views are from computers or laptops! That means your website simply has to be designed as a “responsive site”.

WHAT IS A ``RESPONSIVE WEBSITE``?
AREN'T ALL WEBSITES RESPONSIVE?
Any website designed or upgraded in the last 3 years should be – but that is not guaranteed. In 2013, only 5% of website visitors used a mobile device, so it is doubtful your website is responsive if it was built around that time.
If you are not sure whether or not your website is fully responsive, you can contact us using the form at the bottom of this page, and we will look at the coding of your website to check. We do not charge for this service or any initial consultations.
CAN I UPGRADE MY SITE TO BE RESPONSIVE?
If your website is not responsive, you can ask us to take a look to see if a simple upgrade can be done. Just use the contact form at the bottom of this page – there is no charge for this service. All initial consultations and reviews of your current web setup are always free of charge.
CAN A WEBSITE BE '50% RESPONSIVE'?
For example, a website may resize itself for mobiles and tablets, but certain elements on a page may not be suitable to load on a mobile, and will make the design of the website look cluttered whilst viewing on a handheld device.
Our websites are 100% responsive. We make sure all elements not only resize for mobile, but also load correctly. If they do not, we will replace that element only for mobile, leaving the element as it is for viewing on desktop. What this means, is one of your webpages could be slightly different on desktop, mobile and tablet. What we guarantee is that all 3 versions will both work well, and look great!
