A high percentage of people are now accessing the web through a mobile device, this means that websites must adapt. Previously this required the building of a separate mobile website with a subdomain, normally something like m.domainname.com. The arrival of responsive website technologies changed the mobile landscape. This meant that a single website could still be programmed but in a dynamic way where the design and the usability would adjust to the device being used.
A responsive mobile website design and development project will provide you with a website that will automatically adjust to the screen size and device being used. Your clients and potential clients will have a complete user experience without reducing the content of the website and will not need to keep zooming in and out if they are using their mobile device.
You will achieve better SEO results as there is only one website for your business, there is no risk of duplicate content as with a mobile website. Google now highly favours websites that are mobile friendly. Building links and traffic doesn't need to be directed to two sites thus saving you cost and time.
Mobile responsive websites generate more income especially with eCommerce websites, recent months have seen, and continue to see large increases in online purchases being completed from mobile devices.
Content can be displayed according to the device. There are always cases where content is only relevant to larger screens and not so for mobile devices. Large sliding banners usually don't display well on mobile phones and can easily be programmed to show thumbnail images instead. The website design and development of your responsive website is flexible enough to accommodate.
A mobile responsive website can give a more professional and trustworthy image to your brand. If visitors have a positive experience on your mobile site, they are more likely to return and recommend your site to others.
Mobile website design and development involves creating websites that are optimised for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Every project goes under rigorous testing prior to launch not only to make sure that it looks and feels as it should, but also to test that it looks and behaves as it should on all devices and browsers. A key part of this testing is to ensure that the mobile website is displaying the content selected in the design phase. No websites are launched unless they are perfect!
