- The use of mobile and tablet devices continues to increase. As of May 2013, 56% of American adults own a smartphone according to the Pew Research Center.
- It enhances the user’s experience and is consistent across all devices making it easier to read, navigate, and scroll through websites.
- They result in higher conversions due to a more user-friendly platform that is both easy to use and understand, encouraging visitors to convert to customers.
- It provides search engine optimization (SEO) benefits. According to Google, responsive websites perform better in search engine rankings and allow Google to better crawl a website.
