Maximizing Responsive Web Design: Tips and Tools For Improving Your Website

clock-iconJuly 03, 2018

Digital trends have a high rate of modifying the overall landscape of online marketing. The pace at which these trends change can be challenging for businesses and websites. As mobile web browsing is expected to overtake desktop-based browsing in the future, websites are often challenged to improve the browsing experience.

Web design as a service is considered as both necessary and valuable for marketing and business growth. Several web designers can level up a website to a basic standard of responsiveness, but there are things and tools you can learn on your end to maximize it.

These tips may help you:

  • Understand what adaptive content is and prioritize it - User frustration, according to Usablenet, stems from things like “needing to zoom in and out of pages,” “missing features,” and prompt delays. Go over these with your designer to make sure their browsing is smooth. Designers can also suggest great, if not best solutions to improve or scrap existing designs so it’s wise to facilitate open discussion.
  • Check website design over multiple platforms - Testing your website yourself can be useful during the improvement or modification process. A tool you can learn how to use is Adobe Edge Inspect, which allows you preview designs across multiple platforms in real time. Several other tools worth checking out are also Wookmark, Style Tiles, Responsive Wireframe, Skeleton, ProtoFluid, and Foundation. Testing regularly can also help mitigate challenges early before they develop.
  • Create unique experiences - Responsive web design is not the sole solution to your website traffic problem. A common mistake that businesses make is sacrificing content or contextual creativity and relevance for visuals. Mobile-specific features can also maximize responsiveness and generate organic reach. Users are more likely to attain great browsing experiences if the website offers unique and useful features. Figure out which types of content are necessary and which ones you can do away with.
  • Seek professional advice from wherever you can get it - If you’re not sure how to start, don’t hesitate to seek help. Input and lessons from relevant sources can always be put to use.
