HostPapa partners with goMobi to help customers build mobile websites
Innovative, easy-to-use new service allows HostPapa customers to take advantage of skyrocketing mobile web use
OAKVILLE, ONTARIO, CANADA – May 3, 2011 – HostPapa Green Web Hosting customers can now quickly build mobile friendly websites, thanks to a new partnership with goMobi, an innovative mobile website builder. The goMobi service allows web developers to publish mobile-compatible versions of their websites in minutes – resulting in more traffic, better reach and increased access to consumers on the move.
Statistics clearly show Internet users are going mobile: today, millions of people are surfing the web through their smartphones, tablets and Internet-enabled cell phones. Market experts such as Morgan Stanley predict mobile Internet use will surpass that of desktop Internet use within the next two years. Advertisements on mobile devices are proving more effective than their email counterparts.
In spite of these fast-moving trends, most websites do not perform as they should on the small screens of mobile devices. Traditional websites are slow to load, cluttered, difficult (if not impossible) to navigate and frustrating for mobile device users.
Unfortunately for the website owner, if mobile users have a bad experience with a website, there's a 61% chance they will never go back to that website from their mobile device (gomez.com).
“GoMobi is an excellent, affordable and easy-to-use solution, allowing our customers to get in on the mobile Internet revolution,” says Sylvain Patry, Senior Vice-President of Business Development for Hostpapa Inc. “GoMobi is the first of many services we will be launching in the mobile world for HostPapa clients.”
A goMobi enabled mobile website can be set up in minutes. Any goMobi website can be customized with logos, colors and specific design elements compatible with mobile devices such as iPhones, Blackberries, and smartphones. The new mobile website will make it easy for surfers to find crucial information such as opening hours, contact information, location, social media pages, links, and photos. Other effective features include a one-touch “call me” feature and a Google map with directions to the business address.
To help HostPapa clients go mobile, the first 200 customers who sign up for this service will receive a free customized goMobi setup from the HostPapa mobile expert team.
