A couple of weeks ago, we did a webinar with eBridge Connections on Responsive design and why it is so important today. We hope that you were able to take the time out of your schedule to attend. It was a very informative session and we’re proud to have been given the opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise.
With that said, we know that not everyone out there was able to attend and we want to make sure that everyone can see how important responsive design is today and take advantage of this as a way to enhance their overall customer experience and increase revenue.
eBridge Connections was kind of enough to record the entire webinar and post it on their YouTube channel. To see what you missed, or to watch it again, you can follow the link to the video here: Responsive Design Webinar
