The difference between responsive and mobile friendly websites for your business

iPrescott Business Solutions can create a responsive website to enhance your Prescott business and set you apart from the competition.Have you ever visited a website on your computer and on your phone at the same time? Have you noticed the difference between them? There are two main types of websites that affect what users see on their devices: mobile-friendly and responsive. iPrescott Business Solutions explains the differences between the two so you can make the best decision on a website for your Prescott business.

Mobile-Friendly Design
If you want a website with just text and images, this website will work for you. A mobile-friendly website works exactly the same way no matter which device it’s viewed on. Images will appear smaller and there will be less navigation on the site, but it’s simple and can give your customers information. This design is great for businesses that don’t have a large audience on mobile devices.

There are some downsides, though. More complex functions like dropdown menus may not work very well, especially on phones and tablets.

Responsive Design
Responsive websites “respond” or change with the type of device. They will stand out more to your customers because they allow for unique features. Depending on the size of the device screen used, the website will automatically adjust the ratio of its images, text, and other pieces to fit. For example, if your desktop website had three images positioned side by side, those images would appear in a single column if accessed on a mobile phone.

A downside of this design includes the need for an expert and a bigger budget.

Choose the best website for your own business needs. Maybe you don’t need a responsive website if you don’t have a large mobile customer base. Or maybe a responsive design will be best so you can include all of your company’s information. Either way, iPrescott Business Solutions wants to help you make the best decision for your Prescott business website.
