FAQ for your Mobile Websites

What is the difference between a regular site and a mobile optimized site?

A regular website is usually designed for viewing on a desktop computer. When 
viewed on a smaller mobile device, the user experience isn't that great as certain 
elements from the site might not appear or may not function optimally. Mobileoptimized sites solve this problem by creating a version of the website that 
specifically designed to look great on all mobile phones. In addition, mobile
websites may also include features that take advantage of the advanced
capabilities of a mobile phone such as a click-to-call button that, when clicked,
places a call.

What are the benefits of having a mobile optimized site?

The main benefit of a mobile optimized site is providing a great overall website 
experience to your mobile users. With over 70 million Americans and 58 million 
Europeans browsing websites from their phone every month, it has become a 
necessity to provide a quality mobile experience and provide quick access to 
information about your business. A mobile optimized site also helps convert 
mobile traffic to customers by using special mobile website features like Click-toCall and Mobile Maps with Directions.

Which mobile devices are supported?

All mobile devices with an HTML-enabled browser that supports CSS and
JavaScript are supported. This includes the iPhone, Android phones, some
Blackberry devices, and Windows mobile
How do people find my mobile website?
When a user types in the URL of your regular website on their phone, they will be
automatically redirected to your mobile site.

What’s the difference between a mobile app and a mobile website?

A mobile app is a native software application that can be downloaded and 
installed on the user’s smartphone. Mobile apps can include some interesting 
features, such as push notifications.
A mobile website is a smartphone-friendly version of your website. The mobile 
site will have large easy to tap button, and content that is formatted to fit correctly
on a mobile screen. This way your customers don’t have to pinch and zoom to
find what they’re looking for. This website will display automatically when someone tries to access your site from a smartphone. No downloads necessary.

Which is better, a mobile app or a mobile website?

A mobile app can be an interesting marketing solution, as they can have
additional functionality that mobile websites do not, but they are typically more 
expensive and they do not negate the need for a mobile friendly website.
Customers looking for business information from a mobile phone want quick 
access to the business hours, phone number, and location. If they can't easily
find that from the mobile website, they'll move on to the next one. A mobile 
website instantly connects your customers with the information they are looking 
for. The majority of mobile searches for local businesses are from consumers 
who are looking to buy immediately. If you're searching for Chinese food from 
your mobile phone, you're probably looking to order Chinese food.
Mobile apps must be downloaded and installed, which is an extra step that most 
potential customers just won't take when they're casually browsing businesses or 
just looking for quick info on the go.
Native apps are mostly useful for existing customers, who already know and like 
your brand enough to want to install the app on their phone. The app provides 
the ability for returning customers to view specials, push notifications, and 
company info, but it isn't useful for the casual new customer who isn't familiar 
with your business. If a company creates a mobile app, they should still have a 
mobile friendly website. Besides, they're usually much cheaper.

Is there some sort of hosting or maintenance fee?
Yes, the monthly fee is $150 per year. This includes the mobile hosting, and mobile updates, ensuring your customers constantly have the best experience.
