Responsive Design versus Mobile sites
I am looking to move into Responsive web design for business owners. I then researched the mobile web design market and it seems the 3 top frameworks for developers are Jquery Mobile, JQTouch and Sencha Touch 2.
There are also many FREE mobile site builders offered by hosting companies and other service providers that even grandma could use. Some require payment for extra features.
I am a little confused as to when it would be more appropriate to have a dedicated mobile site using one of these frameworks or to simply design and build one site (responsive) for 320px to 24" browsers. And i also know that the line between mobile and app can be rather blurred depending on client needs.
Also, if i charge a client say £300 + for a mobile version with the usual bells and whistles, wouldn't they get a bit miffed if they discover that some online services can set you up a mobile version for free. I guess this can apply to websites in general as designers compete with 1 & 1 website builder, Wix, Weebly and Godaddy builder etc. Yet established companies pay big bucks for professional web and mobile design and development.
Can any warrior enlighten me please as to what my best course of action would be, and the best sales pitch to would be clients.
Thanks in advance!
