Mobile DevicesWe are pleased to announce that InsideOut Solutions now offers website services for mobile devices.

All websites we design currently display correctly on smartphones, personal digital assistants (PDA) and other web-enabled mobile devices. InsideOut is now providing mobile-specific website services to customize the display of your website on those devices.

Use of mobile devices for web browsing has continued to rise through 2010 into 2011:

With more and more web users accessing websites via their mobile devices, mobile websites are quickly growing out of their niche marketplace and into the mainstream. InsideOut Solutions recognizes this and now offers a couple of powerful mobile website options to our clients.

WordPress Mobile Website HeaderWordPress Mobile Website Plugin

If we host your WordPress-based website on Inndx.com, we can add a custom mobile plugin that will automatically display a version of your website that has been optimized for viewing on mobile devices when accessed by a web-enabled smartphone, PDA, etc.

The WordPress Mobile Website Header displays:

  • Check availability link
  • Phone number (automatically a “click to call” link on most mobile web browsers)
  • Logo
  • Custom navigation items
  • Home page headline & top image

Page content is displayed directly below the top image.

WordPress Mobile Plugin FooterThe WordPress Mobile Website Footer displays:

  • Business name
  • Address
  • Phone number (automatically a “click to call” link on most mobile web browsers)
  • Email as a link
  • Your social media links (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
  • Link to your location on Google Maps

All pages of your website listed in the navigation display in the same custom mobile layout.  The website resides at a mobile-dedicated “m dot” subdomain (e.g. http://m.9cranesinn.com) which is quickly becoming the standard set up for mobile websites (and precludes the need for you to register a .mobi domain solely for mobile website display).

Note: we are in the process of completing a similar option for WordPress websites we host that are not part of Inndx.

Mobile Website HeaderMobile Website Services for Non-WordPress Sites

If you haven’t migrated your website to the WordPress platform, InsideOut Solutions has developed a standalone system for our hosting clients that will automatically display a version of your website that has been optimized for viewing on mobile devices.

The Mobile Website Header displays:

  • Business name
  • Phone number (automatically a “click to call” link on most mobile web browsers)
  • Email address as a link
  • Link to your location on Google Maps

Page content is displayed directly below the top image.

Mobile Website FooterThe Mobile Website Footer displays a link to the full, non-mobile version of your website.

The Mobile Website Administrative Area allows you to control:

  • Background color
  • Text color
  • Accent/link color
  • Heading font
  • Body font
  • Site title (name that appears on the headline)

The Intro Paragraph entry allows you to write up page content using formatted text that allows:

  • Text formatting (bold, italic, etc.)
  • Paragraph formatting (left, center, right or justified)
  • Bullet point or numbered lists
  • Links
  • Headers
  • and more

You may enter any amount of text you want.  Include a prominent link to your availability calendar to encourage online booking.

These tools will help you create an attractive, visitor-friendly mobile website page for users of those devices.

InsideOut Solutions offers either mobile website upgrade for a one-time set up fee of $400 (the introductory price of $200 ended July 15, 2011).  There is NO additional hosting fee for your website; it is a value added service of your annual website hosting.  Simply give us a call at 1-800-500-8401, send us an email, or submit a contact form for more information about how we can help your business present its best face to the mobile web marketplace.
