Membee’s New Member widget now has a responsive design, meaning that all your new members can easily sign up from their smartphone, tablet or desktop. Having a responsive design is becoming increasingly more vital to the search success of a webpage.
What is Responsive Design?
Responsive design means that your website and all of its features work on your pc, tablet and mobile device by adjusting the content to fit the screen that it is being viewed in.
The benefits of having this are:
- No added cost; all the widgets are already included as part of your subscription cost
- No need for an App to be designed
- You can maintain on the website
To enhance the visitor experience, your entire website should use a responsive design. If you would like to learn more about responsive design, here’s a link that contains some great information:
Mobile Friendly Design
With the Membee’s New Member widget now being responsive, and your website now too, any visitor that is accessing your New Member sign-up page can use their PC, tablet or smartphone to do so. This makes it substantially easier for visitors of your site to become full blown members!
In short, Membee’s New Member widget now simply adjusts to the size of the screen the visitor is using. The great thing about responsive design is that you maintain everything in one spot – you don’t need to develop or maintain a mobile site or app. Having a single website that works everywhere offers significant savings over creating multiple native mobile apps and provides your visitor with a great experience.
Responsive Design Impacts SEO
Your organization's search engine optimization (SEO) can be effected negatively if your webpage does not have a responsive design.
Google would much rather support sites with a singular domain rather than having multiples, such as having a regular site and a separate mobile site. Mobile-responsive sites are easier for Google. It simply reduces the chances of errors with setups that are common with mobile sites.
Possible Effects of Not Having Responsive Design
Not only does Google openly prefer when webmasters have a responsive design, but having a responsive design helps to avoid all sorts of issues, including;
- Bad Redirects
- Slow Pages
- High Bounce Rates
- Improper Canonicalization
If your members are opening a link you sent them, or simply trying to reach your website from their mobile devices they may encounter a high bounce rate. Websites not translating well on other devices is a reason for 61% of your members to become frustrated and leave.
On top of that, members that have a positive experience on an optimized mobile website, will have a 67% increased chance of converting or using its service, shown in the chart above.
