NEW TECHNOLOGY CONVERTS DESKTOP WEBSITES TO SMARTPHONE OPTIMIZED AND 'MOBILE READY'
Womple, a web-to-mobile conversion company, helps businesses take advantage of the rapid shift to mobile browsing and stay connected with customers
BELLINGHAM, WA (July 17, 2012) –Womple today launched its web-based service that converts regular websites to mobile ready, making them effective and searchable on smartphone browsers. Powered by a patent-pending design engine, Womple makes the transition to mobile easy and affordable for small and medium-sized businesses.
According to Google, 61 percent of mobile users contact a business immediately after searching and 50 percent of searches lead to direct sales. From restaurants to real estate agents to car dealerships, virtually every business needs to consider the rapid shift to mobile and its impact on how consumers access information and make buying decisions.
“Mobile browsing is now mainstream and smartphones will soon replace desktops as the primary way consumers access the Internet,” said Madison Miner, founder and CEO of Womple. “Today, consumers are turning to their smartphone to buy products, find local retailers and search the Internet. Businesses need to make the transition to mobile to remain connected with their ever-changing customer base.”
Because each business is different, Womple’s platform offers a unique approach to building mobile websites. Womple does not force its customers to settle for generic templates and designs, but rather transitions a client’s overall branding and messaging directly to mobile. The ability to convert an existing website to mobile – maintaining its original colors, logo and overall branding – is made possible by the company’s proprietary technology.
“Our powerful design engine is changing the mobile web industry,” said Miner. “What used to take weeks and cost thousands of dollars can now be accomplished in under an hour. Womple creates professionally designed mobile websites at a fraction of the cost and we pass that savings to our customers. In no time, our customers are reaching mobile audiences, improving their search engine optimization and staying connected in today’s mobile world.”
Womple’s mobile websites remain automatically in sync with the regular website. Changes, including text, images and content, made on the regular site are reflected in real-time on the mobile site. Customers only need to manage one website.
With any mobile website, the challenge is creating simple navigation, usability and offering a dynamic web experience. Womple has the right features to engage users and help businesses stay connected. Womple offers the following features:
- Converts any portion of your regular website to mobile ready in minutes;
- Automatically syncs with content on the regular website;
- Creates iPhone and Android apps to let customers reach you directly from their phones;
- Integrates Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flicker;
