New investment in Mercator’s responsive websites

12 Jun 2013

Mercator Media has made another significant investment in its online offering and redesigned all 14 of its magazine and event websites. All of the sites have been re-engineered to incorporate ‘responsive design’ which ensures the best possible display of content on any device.

These developments offer a more up-to-date user experience as well as improved response rates for advertising clients.  The investment reinforces Mercator Media’s significant online product advantage in the markets we serve.

‘Responsive design’ allows website contents to be optimised for best viewing on all screen sizes and resolutions, from desktops and laptops to tablets and smart phones. The website recognises the reader’s device type and adapts the text size, navigation and lay-out, as well as the size and positioning of the display advertising.

 “The number of visitors to our websites from tablets and smart phones has risen by 90% in the last year,” said Andrew Webster, managing director of Mercator Media. ‘The purpose of this investment is to make sure we provide our readers and advertisers the very best of new technology to help them with their businesses”.

“The new designs and layouts were developed in response to our ongoing audience research. Also, print, on-line and eNewsletters are integral parts of each of our magazine brands and need to reflect a common look and feel which is constantly evolving”.
