IMPORTANT ELEMENTS IN RESPONSIVE DESIGNING OF ECOMMERCE WEBSITES • In today’s eCommerce business market it is extremely important for the sellers to have their business presence everywhere right from the web to the mobile and to the tablets for a seamless experience and to capitalize on a growing mobile presence.

  4. 4. MAIN ASPECTS OF RESPONSIVE DESIGN • Every responsive website design has following three aspects which makes it flexible enough to fit to the viewing environment accordingly and hence, looks awesome without any disturbances or errors in design when opened through any platform.

  5. 5. FLUID GRIDS • A fluid grid is the concept of developing a flexible grid layout where website page elements sizing is automatically set to adjust according to relative units like percentages rather than pixels or points as in the normal designing process. Hence the web page fits any screen size automatically. TOPSTechnologeis-WebDesigning Training
  6. 6. FLEXIBLE IMAGES • The size of the images too is set according to the relative units so that they do not appear disturbed or out of their containing elements. TOPSTechnologeis-WebDesigning Training
  7. 7. MEDIA QUERIES • This is a responsive web designing technology in which a web page is automatically set to adapt a CSS style according to the browser width in the device in which the website is opened up. • Responsive web designing course will teach you development of websites that can load faster and deliver enhanced user experience without any problems as in device-based solutions. There are five key elements to consider for responsive designing which can be learnt through this course. TOPSTechnologeis-WebDesigning Training
  8. 8. MASTHEAD • Masthead is the top section of the website consisting of header, logo, primary navigation tools and search box. It is a good practice to go with a small header with simple linear CSS for greater flexibility in designing. The core content of the web page should be the main focus here.

  10. 10. CONTINUE…. • However, larger and emphasized logo would help as this would be the identification of the business website. • Displaying the navigation menu or content is rather a difficult task on a small mobile screen. Hence one should go for alternatives. One can go for designing a simple menu anchor text which helps in main navigation on small screens or can also create a header anchor that leads the user to the menu in the footer. Left side navigation marked with an icon of menu that pushes the content of page to the right and slides into the page from the left would be a great idea to go with. However the simplest of all, would be the navigation in which the menu overlays the main content in the webpage. • Place a search box at the right or a custom position in the header as this would lead the users to what actually they are looking for.

  12. 12. IMAGE GALLERY • Better way to display products is through an image gallery. Displaying product images can be done in an effective way on small screens with the use of touch friendly image carousel which allows the user to swipe between the products with a slight touch. Make sure you use lightweight script to build this. This will reduce loading time and enhance the user experience. TOPSTechnologeis-WebDesigning Training
  13. 13. IMAGE GALLERY TOPSTechnologeis-WebDesigning Training  Make sure to highlight the preview of various product views and link all the product images to their larger counterparts. This will enable the user to have a better view of product.

  15. 15. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION • A description guides user about the product and hence is an important requirement in website design.Making description containing price, name or rating of the product above its image will provide users with the necessary product information, while on the other hand the rating of the product displayed with stars and review count information provided along side of the product can be very helpful to the smart phone users who usually shop through their phones.

  16. 16. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION TOPSTechnologeis-WebDesigning Training • You can always have a share button placed near the information of products as this can be great way of promoting the products of the seller. Placing additional elements like quantity field, size dropdown and add to cart button can be of great help from user’s perspective.

  18. 18. AUXILIARY INFORMATION • Once the logo, menus, products and their description are displayed, one can opt to showcase information like related products and product reviews which is important but not mandatory. • These elements can give a buyer idea of similar products and about the quality of products supplied by the organization or business.

  20. 20. FOOTER • Footer is the last but one of the most important sections of a website mandatory to display. This should include • Navigation links which is the best way of leading the user to main site navigation and other sections of the website for better user experience • The information including the customer service numbers and email id which can give the user contact information about the organization. You can also place a back link that directs the user to top navigation menu as this can also be a way of improving the user’s experience. Hence a better user experience is provided with a footer section, an important element for responsive web design. TOPSTechnologeis-WebDesigning Training
