You may or may not be aware that Google is prioritising mobile sites for 2017. Google is separating it’s search indexes for mobile users to prioritise results which are easily readable and relevant to the user. This means that responsive websites will receive a massive boost in search engine results from mobiles and appear above desktop websites.

Your website may appear pixel perfect on a desktop but none the less rendered illegible upon a mobile / tablet device meaning your website may not be listed at all to mobile users. Making this the perfect time to make sure you have a responsive site prepared for 2017.
Beyond preparing your website to rank in google effectively there are many other reasons to get responsive:
One responsive site is easier to manage than one for desktop and one for mobile devices saving time and money.
A responsive site provides a better user experience. A well-presented, easy to read and navigate site leads to happy users who will be more likely to stay for longer and return to your site in the future.
Reach a wider audience of mobile and tablet users that will no longer be accessible without a mobile friendly site.
The underlying message is that it’s imperative to have a responsive website in 2017
