6 Best Practices of Responsive Web Design [Infographic]
Pallab Kakoti's curator insight, April 24, 2014 4:56 AM

Responsive designs are the window into the future of web portability to drive higher per user engagement by embedding the concept of Probability Scores. An aggregate of Content Scores & Engagement Scores are debated prior to finalizing which sections gets a higher Probability Score that will eventually determine content position in the responsive design layout. Probability Scores aims at achieving better per user click through rate owing to its full width auto adaptive content display interface that adjust the landing page  content based on the device.

 

Earlier websites used to feed different URLs for different devices. For example m.sitename.com or mobile.sitename.com indicated that the URL is for mobile or smart devices. But now things have changed thanks for responsive design attributes that determines the device that is trying to access the site URL before optimizing the content layout to adjust automatically with the device interface. This way the same URL is serving any device that is trying to access the website which again is compliance for search engine algorithm.

 

Responsive design has the advantage to every inch of the device or browser interface to maximize the user’s engagement intent possibility. Compelling visual storytelling theme powered by catchy headlines or titles richly feed with an interesting content copy furthermore elevates user interest to engage. This nature in elevating intent & urge to get involved have statistically indicated the favourability of lead generation & conversion rates from responsive designs.

 

Mobile devices will overtake PC user worldwide citing encouraging statistics to enthuse responsive design for websites, emails & landing pages. Responsive design layouts devised with #ProbabilityScores are based on the overall marketing objectives & branding goals. An implosive content marketing strategy with a creative team of visual storytellers delivers inspiring results and therefore the greater goodness is in the adoption of Responsive Site Design.

Responsive Web Design Infographic: Benefits and Pitfalls | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

People are increasingly using mobile devices like tablets and smartphones to browse the Web. The variety of screen sizes, resolutions, and platforms people use to access webpages has given birth to the rise of responsive Web design, where developers create one single site to function properly across all devices instead of producing multiple dedicated site designs to work with particular screen sizes and platforms.


While responsive Web design can be a great way for developers to ensure that their site is compatible with all devices, implementing it instead of targeted Web designs also comes with certain drawbacks. Here is an overview of the changing climate of Web devices, followed by tips for evaluating whether or not you should implement a responsive design.

Many of our friends on Twitter have design blogs, and frankly, that was the initial way we got connected. In fact, I started using Twitter because I thought that some of these people had some curious content that I constantly wanted to check out.

For someone who loves design, it’s easy to find what you want by just googling what you are after, but finding blogs that you continuously want to visit can sometimes be hard. Tech King, the masters of putting together some really useful infographics, have been hard at work putting the most popular design blogs into one infographic. The whole theme of the infographic is that it’s based upon what social following they have. It’s a system that makes serious sense if you think about it...

Responsive Email Design: Five Case Studies & An Infographic | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Mobile email is a major challenge for businesses as studies have shown that as much as 50% of marketing messages are opened on mobile devices.

Obviously the precise figure varies drastically from company to company, so the need to optimise for mobile will be less important for some businesses. Even so, it’s an issue that all businesses will have to deal with at some point in the next year or so.

One option for dealing with mobile email is responsive design, which uses one set of code that renders an email differently when viewed on a desktop, tablet or smartphone...

When it comes to design, user experience is one of the key things.


According to this infographic, 68% of users leave because of poorly designed websites and 62% of customers base future purchases on past experiences. These stats alone are clear enough that UX (User Experience) isn’t something that can be taken lightly. The life and blood of your business might very well depend on this factor alone.

Chissà quanti IT manager considerano che l'impatto delle piattaforme in azienda dipende dal fatto che il "68% degli utenti abbandona a causa della scarsa qualità nel design della UI mentre il 62% di essi basa le proprie scelte sulle esperienze passate"? Di certo una valutazione di questo genere influisce sulla fiducia dei clienti interni verso i propri IT manager. Non siamo più negli anni '80 o '90 quando bastava buttare lì qualche terminologia tecnica per zittire tutti. Oggi vi è una conoscenza basata sul confronto di altre proposte, su quelle adottate a casa propria e su pacchetti tutto compreso testabili facilmente dall'utilizzatore finale.

Want your website to look great on smartphones, tablets, PCs and even TVs? Learn how to go fully responsive.


The Web and the mobile browsers remain one of the top ways that users interact with websites and if they have trouble on their smartphone, there is a good chance they are not coming back.

That’s where responsive design can help.

Responsive design is a concept where you build your website once and then format it so it can adapt to any screen size that accesses it. Designers use HTML5 and CSS to build the sites and set parameters so the content will resize itself whether the user is in vertical or horizontal viewing mode, on a tablet, desktop or smartphone or even a screen as large as a television...

Why a Mobile Website Is Part of Any Business Plan [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

57% of mobile web users will end up not recommending a website if they had any trouble visiting it on their phones. If a business has a bad website for mobile devices, 34% of visitors will end up going to a competitors’ website.

According to WebpageFX, businesses should use CSS for the layout and not tables. They should code with XML or XHTML, and put all the important information on the top of the landing page. ”Mobile website users are usually busy doing something else like waiting in line, walking through town, or spending time out with friends,” reports WebpageFX. “Their main focus is not necessarily your website so information needs to be quick and easy to access.”

By 2015, mobile sales in the U.S. are expected to reach $31 billion (right now they’re at $6.7 billion). Businesses have to get ready and have a solid mobile site, since that’s where many sales will start taking place...

Getting More From Infographics

Getting More From Infographics | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Infographics are on the rise, and well-made, well-placed creations can broaden a brand's reach further than any advertisement.

 

As a visual communication device, infographics lend themselves to the representation of statistical data or explanation of complex relationships. But that’s not where their value ends. In fact, infographics can communicate just about anything, so long as it’s engaging, relevant and more compelling as an image than as pure text.

Infographics come in a variety of formats, too. Layout, orientation and styling are limited only by the creativity of the designer. We’re even starting to see the rise of “infomotion” — infographics with moving elements and interactivity that further engage the audience.

Infographies sont à la hausse, et bien fait, les créations bien placés peuvent élargir la portée d'une marque au-delà de toute publicité.

 

En tant que dispositif de communication visuelle, infographie se prêtent à la représentation des données statistiques ou des explications des relations complexes. Mais ce n'est pas là leur valeur se termine. En fait, infographie peuvent communiquer n'importe quoi, tant que c'est engageante, pertinente et plus convaincante que l'image que comme texte pur.

Infographies viennent dans une variété de formats, aussi. Mise en page, l'orientation et le style ne sont limitées que par la créativité du concepteur.Nous commençons même à voir la montée du «infomotion" - infographie avec des éléments mobiles et l'interactivité que la poursuite interpellent le public".
