Yes it will. Mobile devices like tablets and smartphones are very popular and a successful website design project must be responsive and mobile friendly.
As an example, in a city like Toronto, almost everyone carries a smartphone and if any service or product being required by that person, he/she simply use his/her cellphone to search. If a website does not look nice and easy to browse on mobile devices, it’s possible that visitors just close the browser window and open another website.
As a website design company in Toronto, We consider this requirement in all of our website design and Website development projects.
Mobile Devices and smartphones have limitations on screen size and their built in browser is not as strong as desktop or laptop browsers.
If such limitations not being considered in a website design project, the final result will not be useful or interesting for people who browse the website by their mobile devices.
The result is clear; users close the website and will try to open another website. For a business which aims to make leads or sell products or services via its website, this is not an acceptable practice.
