Mobile Web Design That Works

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, mobile-friendly web design is essential to any business’s success. Many companies are already aware that they need to have a mobile-friendly, or responsive, web design. However, many of those same companies aren’t exactly sure how to create the best mobile design. There are many different principles and practices for mobile web design, so which ones are the most important, and which ones will bring you the greatest results?

Functional and Fashionable

Of course, there are many responsive web design principles that will work, and a lot depends on what you hope to accomplish with your website, but these key principles can be game-changing. One of the first things to remember when it comes to mobile-friendly web design is that you get what you pay for. That means you shouldn’t skimp on your website. Your design should be functional and fashionable. It not only needs to look good but also it needs to work properly, which means it easily adapts to whatever size screen is being used, whether that’s a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

Easy Navigation and Calls to Action

Navigation menus are one of the most important aspects of any website. Users have to be able to easily find what they are looking for or they won’t stick around. However, with mobile your navigation menu should be very simple and only include the most important aspects of your website. Mostly, make sure things are easy to find. The same principle goes with any call to action. It should be easy to find and easy to use. That means it should be eye-catching and in the right location on the page.

All About Being Easy

Online forms are also an important aspect of many websites and they too should be kept as simple as possible, especially for mobile visitors. They should be non-intrusive and easy to use and fill out. Along those same lines, make sure that your visitors can easily determine how to contact you and if you use an online contact form – instead of redirecting to an email window – again, make sure those forms are basic and easy to use.
