I posted an article several months ago listing the eight reasons a business should consider building a new website. My number one reason this week is based an an experience I have had one times too many. Your site is not responsive. In other words, it does not respond to other screen formats such as tablets and smart phones. Edges are cut off and/or the text is hard to read.
We all know that cell phone use in the United States (and worldwide) continues to increase each year. Statistica.com states that “…73 percent of the population in the United States were actively browsing the internet from their mobile device.” So, if you are hobbling along without a responsive website, you are falling behind. An article on the Five Reasons You Need a Responsive Website, they list three additional important points.
- Great User Experience is a Must.
- Responsive Website Design is Ideal for SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
- Speed of Your Responsive Website is Key
The tendency to use plugins to fix your lack of a modern theme runs a risk of it not working well. It can take several hours better used to build a new site and lastly, it sets up a scenario where the plugin causes conflicts and the site breaks. The free versions are far from perfect. The plugin may not include a tablet version. Pro versions are costly. And why would you pay to have a band-aid option?
Meet Divi. Our modular theme includes all the tools to customize both cell and tablet versions. You can resize text and remove sections or images. It is built into the theme and completely compatible.
Since DIvi is constantly being updated and improved, you won’t need to change themes ever again. There are thousands of designers and developers that can help you make changes and even alter the look and feel of the site.
So for me, it’s a no brainer. Switch to Divi and take control of your website for the rest of your life. (Divi can be purchased by you at https://elegantthemes.com or through your web designer…me. 😉
