As a web designer your job is to attract users and keep them engaged for maximum period of time. Not only that, but you have to give a solid message that makes them come back to your website again.

However with the arrival of touch pads and screens, alternatives are required. Keep your design more touch friendly as this is what’s going to happen this year and the after!

But one thing is for sure, if the mobile version is neglected, the website will be crucified with the loss of traffic.
