Responsive email is the effective way to increase email open rate. The research has shown that about 70% of people tend neither to open nor to read emails that are not rendered or displayed well on their mobile devices. So, if your email or site is not adapted to various mobile devices, the most of you clients will leave you.
A responsive email gives an opportunity to optimize your emails for every user. This is a site developing method, which allows to create a flexible site, that can suit any size of the users’ device. Scaling of the interface works due to the media-queries or module CSS3. Thus, different styles are combined, depending on the size of the desktop. This design is suitable for portals with relatively simple functionality. Otherwise, the developers will spend a lot of time and resources on redesigning the site for the tablet and mobile phone to compensate the existing lack of flexibility.
