Hello,

The company I started to work at has an outdated website, I'm trying to make the owners see how much of a red flag is not having a website that isn't adaptable to different devices. I've been looking for statistics but so far I have been able to find which browser people use the most. Which is helpful, but what I'm trying to prove is that by not having a site that can be viewed on different screen sizes they are losing potential clients. Does anyone know where I can get accurate numbers and maybe even projections about this?

I appreciate your help.

They know about responsive web design, what I'm trying to show them is that by not updating their website they are losing potential clients.

That's why I need numbers.

Thanks for the link though, I will use some parts of the article in my presentation.

And be pushing back on the cost. There is some middle ground where you have a mobile site and a laptop site. That's pretty cheap.

Almost always it's about the money.

To help with the cost

There are some great frameworks out there to help speed up the development and provide a solid foundation to build upon.

Personally, I like Zurb's Foundation, but Twitter's Bootstrap is also very popular. If you couple that with a language like Sass (which Foundation uses), it really lets you focus on the job at hand without having to reinvent the wheel too much.

First check your website on Internet Explorer latest version. If they support the internet explorer then the website can support any browser. Also make it responsive so that it can open in any mobile, tablets and PC's.

You have to know about the emerging trends for this year. It says that people are moving towards responsive website design. This is much more advantageous because it provides a flexible view of the website in both computers and mobiles also. This is an important strategy towards the ROI.

From the year of 2013 Flat designs and responsive web designing trends have already evaded in the Digital world. So responsive web design in the ultimate solution towards companies profit. Moreover focus on the content which is considered to be the key of 75% of the total traffic to maintain their level.

This is also the latest web trend named RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN. It takes some code added to your code and your website will adapt according to the different screen sizes.
