How to Decide to Move to a Responsive Web Design?

There is a lot of talk these days about making your website responsive so that people can use it and view on tablets and mobile devices.  Theme development companies are responding to this change by offering more and more responsive website themes to meet this demand.  So, how do you decide to move your existing website to a more responsive design or create a new website using responsive web design?  If you are considering a new website then choosing this option is a good idea from the very start because mobile devices and internet access through mobile devices will only increase in the coming years.

Where I do want to focus are the businesses that have an existing website because if you use a tool like Google Analytics it makes easy to understand how many of your visitors are visiting today on a mobile device and the type of mobile device they are viewing your website on specifically.  Once you log into Google Analytics go to Visitors | Mobile | Mobile Devices and you should see a similar screen to the one below…

This gives you the ability to look at the types of devices that people are using to view your website and needless to say if you find that more and more people are using mobile devices to view your site it might be time to consider a change to your existing website.
