Responsive design is about more than adjusting layouts for smartphones and tablets. It's about adopting a flexible mindset—and that means rethinking your content, too. To create sites that shift and reshape without losing their meaning and marketing value, you need to know which messages are critical to meeting both your own business goals and your users' needs, and how content elements should work together to communicate them.
This PRO seminar will teach you how to incorporate your content strategy into responsive design effectively. You'll learn why content strategy is critical to your success, how to keep your calls to action in tact, and more!
