The increase in the sales of smartphones apparently reveals that they are going to rule the world over a certain period of time. So, having a website supporting the mobiles is a great idea to connect and engage with clients. However, creating a mobile responsive website is difficult and it may not be a walk in the park for many.

Today, in this post, I would like to provide you with some solid tips using which creating a compelling responsive website for better returns will be simple and effective.

Plain and straightforward layout:

Layout plays a crucial role in the development of mobile-responsive website and keeping it simple and plain is the effective way to impress customers. Coding the layout with HTML or HTML5 would be a wise move to make the site load faster and use easily. Eliminating 100% redundant and unwanted coding is recommended as it can hurt the performance of the website remarkably.

Rock with media queries:

A great way to design a mobile responsive website is by coding them with media queries. Selecting the size and tool is awesomely simple using this tool and it is the reason why top developers focus on developing their responsive websites with media queries. Focus on the width and using media queries is a great option to control the layout of the website.

Opt for fluid grid layout:
Another interesting idea as this could give the developer the option to create breakpoints and make if flexible. Also, changing the breakpoints becomes absolutely easy with this kind of layout and it is the reason why developers focus on creating websites on fluid layouts. Using proportional units like %, em and em is recommended for better performance.

Checkout browser compatibility:
Testing the performance of the website on different smartphones is important as a few websites that work extremely fine on some devices won’t work great on others.

Different screen sizes and resolutions might create a huge problem when viewed by users. So, make sure that your website works equally well on multiple devices for better customer conversions.

Approach a professional designer:
This is highly important as hiring a novice will lead to disastrous results. A smart developer with profound experience realizes and visualizes what a mobile-savvy customer wants, and design a website with meticulous features.

In addition, professionals have the ability to complete the process of designing the responsive website in a short span of time as well. This could save you time and money.
