How to create a mobile website with Mobile Roadie
Almost half of all mobile owners in the US (49.8%) use their phones to browse the web, so it is important that your website be compatible for mobile devices. Mobile users don’t want to constantly zoom in & out, scroll from side to side, and sift through large amounts of data to navigate your site.
When a mobile user visits your site from their mobile device, they are looking for compact, easy-to-read, and straight to the point portals of information, preferably tailored to the smartphone they are using. They want big buttons, simple navigation, and presentable graphics. They want to be able to find what they’re looking for in as few steps as possible. Mobile users like convenience, and convenient is what your mobile website should be.
So now that we’ve gone over the importance of having a mobile website, how can you create or make one? Your first option is to do it in-house or hire a web developer to create a mobile website for you – however, this option can be costly and time consuming. Your second option is to DIY using a mobile website creator, which is inexpensive and easy to use.
But with so many mobile website creators hanging around Google and other search engines, which one is right for you? The answer lies in what you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for affordability, the flexibility to design and change content whenever you’d like, and measure basic stats, then our mobile website creator may be just what you’re looking for. Unlike most mobile site creators that just pull in content and design features from your existing website and call it quits, our site creator is much more flexible, allowing you to design and update content from our CMS.
To get started, visit our Mobile Web homepage. From there, you can choose either the Free Mobile Website or Premium Mobile Website. If you choose the Free Mobile Website, you can always upgrade to Premium at a later time if you wish.
The next steps are simple: Enter your name and website, which we’ll use to create a preview of your mobile site. After you save your app, you’ll gain entry into our Mobile Web CMS where you can edit content, add sections, and design your site. Once your site is live, you can always go back and update content.
Before you create a mobile website, you may want to see how much traffic is coming from mobile devices to your site. You can do this with Google Analytics. Check out this article for a step-by-step how to. If you find that you don’t have a lot of traffic coming from mobile devices, don’t worry – it’s always better to start sooner than later because eventually, as more people switch to smartphones, they’ll be doing much of their web browsing through mobile devices.
