Before you begin using our service, let us define what a mobile website really is. A mobile website is defined as a website that can be viewed using a mobile device such as a smartphone, tablet, iPhone or Android device. In context, a mobile website is defined as a way to view a desktop website using the popularity of smartphones.
Technically, standard websites cannot be viewed on phones. Mobilize.ME makes it really easy and quick to create a new website that may be viewed on phones as well as other mobile devices. If you would like to test your existing website, please check out our free mobile website testing tool.
There are many businesses that use desktop websites. These websites are designed for computer desktops and laptops to provide people access to information that they need about a particular business. However, smartphones and other kinds of mobile devices have become very popular over the years and anyone that has used a smartphone to check out non-mobile friendly sites will quickly point out the frustration that he is experiencing in doing so!
Standard sites scroll sideways and are too big to be very visible on a small screen. It is harder to use your fingers to scroll up and to click on a non-mobile friendly site and all these add to the negative experience of people visiting your website.
Mobilize.ME is created to put an end to all these frustrating experiences. Mobile websites are smaller versions of your website. These are designed to fit in a small screen of a mobile phone which is no wider than 320 pixels that can only scroll up and down. Standard text links are eliminated and buttons are used to create a more user-friendly experience.
Compared to desktop websites, mobile websites gives a strong emphasis to the use of call to action buttons such as Click-to-Call. This feature allows mobile website users to simply tap the icon or button to place a call to the business. Another smart feature is the Mobile Map feature that considers that every mobile phone has a built-in map and GPS system. Users can simply use the Mobile Map to find the location of a store or a shop near them. They could pull up a map of their city so that they could travel to a location or a branch of a business. All these can be done in just a few clicks of a button. And of course, the best part of it all is that this could be added to a site once it has been transformed by Mobilize.ME using a very simple drag and drop mobile website builder platform.
So what is a mobile website? Simply put, it makes businesses more accessible to customers as they find businesses from a mobile search. If you own a business, a mobile website will make your customers happier with the rich experience that they get out of your business. You will also be able to transform site visitors to actual paying customers when you have a mobile friendly site.
