Mobile Visitors Have a Specific Purpose
Put yourself in the shoes of your potential site visitors – when you are on a mobile device, are you just browsing? Typically, mobile viewers are on their phones for a specific purpose. They are on your site to compare your brand to the competition, look up how to contact you or find your location, or to read more about your product or service. This means we stick with easy navigation and a quick loading site during mobile development.
Mobile Users Convert More Often
Conversion rates for users on mobile sites tend to be higher. This is because if the mobile user tends to have a specific purpose. Your site either meets their expectations or does not.

I Like My Current Site. Can I Make It Mobile-Friendly or Do I Have to Start Over?
Clients often reach out to us when they are happy with their current website but don’t have a site that is mobile ready. You may think that you need two or even three sites, each for different devices. You have several options for your site. Red House Website Design offers the following options:
Responsive Website Design: This is where your site, no matter which device it is viewed on, adapts to any screen resolution. The site can adapt to tablets, mobile, and computer screen sizes. Typically, our team recommends this option when we are planning your website from scratch. It is important to note: Google recommends responsive design websites as the best for search engine optimization (SEO).
Separate Style Sheets: This is where you have the same URL but the CSS style sheets of your website change depending on what type of device is accessing the website. The coding of your site stays the same with changes only being made to the style sheet.
Separate Websites: With a separate website, the website redirects users to a new URL depending on what type of device they are visiting from.
