General Overview and ROI
What is goMobi?
goMobi is a service that makes your
business easily available to mobile users with a fast and easy mobile
website. Millions of people are now using their mobile phones to surf
the Internet and look for information and services. goMobi ensures
customers can easily find your business anywhere, anytime. Thanks to
its intuitive and easy-to-use interface, customers get immediate
access on their mobile phone to all the key information about your
business and are able to contact you with just one click or touch.
Why is the mobile web important?
There are 4 billion mobile phones in
active use worldwide: 4 times more than PCs. In 2009, mobile web usage
increased 148% globally (Source: Quantcast) and the numbers continue
to rise. In fact, by the end of 2013, customers using the mobile web
are projected to grow to 1 billion. Your customers are already looking
for you on their mobile phones. This is a huge opportunity for your
business you don’t want to miss. If your business is not on the
mobile web, your customers won’t be able to find you!
Will this replace my desktop site,
or be in addition to my desktop site?
A goMobi mobile site extends the reach
of your business to the mobile Web, allowing you to provide your
mobile visitors a fast and easy way to learn about your business and
contact you with one click. While your existing web site is aimed at
giving a full and comprehensive picture of your business, a goMobi
mobile site allows you to deliver immediate access to what matters
most when on the go.
What are the benefits to my
Studies show that visitors who access a
full web site on their mobile phones complain about how much time and
data is required to load the site and how hard it is to find the
information they need. Most of these customers abandon such sites
quickly out of frustration and are unlikely to return and, worse yet,
look for a competitor with a more mobile-friendly site.
A goMobi site resolves these problems
and satisfies your mobile visitors by giving them quick and easy
access to the key information about your business. A goMobi site is
designed with the mobile user in mind. You save them time and money,
and you easily convert them into happy, paying customers.
How does goMobi help to increase a
site’s visibility in mobile search engines?
The goMobi site is built using good
practice recommendations, as outlined in Google’s Search Engine
Optimisation Guide, which includes creation of a sitemap, well defined
page titles and descriptions, optimized site structure for navigation,
good URL structure, optimized robots.txt, and site submission to
In addition, you can provide keywords for your business, which are
used to assist search engines to rank the site’s relevance to an end
user’s search request. Links to social network sites will also
assist in this process.
How is my goMobi mobile site built?
When you sign up for goMobi, you get
access to the user friendly goMobi Setup Assistant which puts you in
charge of your site’s look and content. With the Setup Assistant
your site can be built in minutes and changed whenever you wish.
Another great feature of your goMobi site is that some of the content
from your full site will already be populated for you on your goMobi
site, such as your telephone number, address and logo.
How much time will I need to set up
my goMobi site?

not confirmed their settings, then content from the new source site
will be available in minutes.
