The range of devices consumers are using to access the internet is constantly increasing. As a result, it is becoming increasingly important to look good on all platforms. However, this takes some careful consideration. As a result, many companies are neglecting the consumers that will access their website from a smartphone or tablet. Here at Pumpkin Web Design, we are web experts and we know the value of responsive design. Consequently, we have produced this guide to make sure you look good across multiple platforms.

Orientation Optimization

Gone are the days when a website was just horizontal. Mobile devices with rotating screens are used to access billions of websites every day. As a result, businesses need to take into consideration the fact that their website can now be viewed in vertical, as well as horizontal. Consequently, orientation optimization has hugely increased in importance. It is essential that your business website looks amazing, no matter whether it’s vertical or horizontal. Websites that don’t have this level of optimization will leave a bad impression on the viewer. This can damage your company as a whole.

Responsive Design

Multiple platforms have the problem of multiple resolutions. From a 5 inch smartphone screen, to a 17 inch Laptop screen, your website needs to be responsive. This means it will scale up or down in response to the screen size available. This is an expectation that consumers have come to demand from every business, no matter the size.

Playable content

On multiple platforms, you may experience load errors with different types of playable content. From video to contact forms, if your website isn’t optimised for viewing on multiple platforms, you could end up losing customers. Different browser types and different levels of processing can leave users waiting endlessly for content to load. To make sure your website looks good across a range of devices, test your playable content thoroughly.

In summary

Multiple platform access to your website is essential. With more and more people using mobile devices to access websites, you need to be prepared to meet those user requirements. Why not let the professionals help you out and contact Pumpkin Web Design today?
