I am working on a new template right now. I am coding it into with bootstrap 3. My question is…Does it really need to be responsive? Is that just a gimmick to increase sales? I know there is an argument for and against. I guess I am thinking that to be truly professional, it should be responsive.

Your thoughts?

The template doesn’t need necessary to be responsive but is a nice way to get more sales if you will do it :)

You’re trying to publish on a competitive market, I don’t know how removing a pretty much expected feature will be anything apart from disastrous

Responsiveness is a MUST if you DO NOT want less than 5 sales!

Suppose you’ve created an item which is not responsive (but you are happy to see it from your 17”/19”/21” ... monitor), when a buyer will check your item from 11” inches TAB or 13” Laptop, he may get an absurd design and the wrong placement, he certainly escape from your item.

And also, from a report(forgotten source), about 40% people browse websites from their tiny size mobile, for that, the site owners are also very conscious and they want a World Class Responsive Design by which the item can be seen clear and same on all devices. :)

Lastly, you’re using Bootstrap, so some lines are enough to make it Responsive.

Thanks!
