Responsive Web Design: The Ultimate Guide for Online Marketers

Responsive Web Design: The Ultimate Guide for Online Marketers | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

As of February, the smartphone share in the United States has reached nearly 50%. 2012 is FINALLY "the year of mobile" and this means that you need to invest in a mobile user experience. Check your analytics — that mobile traffic share keeps growing!

 

With all of the hype that responsive web design is getting, what are the biggest implications for marketers and SEOs regarding its fit as the long-term mobile strategy?

In a nutshell, responsive web design (RWD) is a technique which uses fluid layouts (which "stretch" to as much screen real estate as possible) in addition to the CSS "@media queries," which apply different style sheets (CSS) based on the current screen size of the device.

1. Advertising and infographics rule the b2b marketing pins

 

Today, B2B marketers can get tons of great examples of award winning infographics and advertising campaigns on Pinterest. For that alone it’s an amazing resource. However, for other types of marketing, well, my fellow marketers, we have some work to do. Imagine a Pinterest page filled with pins of amazing fashion, inspirational interior design, stunning landscapes, and a screenshot of your low production value product demo video…um, it’s nice you have a presence, but how does that pin of a crappy screenshot of a crappy video look next to the rest of these other magnificent pins?
