While regular websites may eventually be viewable on all devices, there is no reason to limit your audience.

Google Sites has come up with an ultra-convenient template to make a smartphone compatible mobile site to ensure your basic information is posted, get started at Google Sites - Mobile Websites.

Basic Tips

  • Include your location and phone number. These things help search engines like Google know you're a real business, and get you better rankings.
  • If you're brick and mortar, include your business hours. This is exactly the kind of reason your customers are looking for you on their phone.
  • Summarize what you do. Included a limited summary of the main things that you provide.
  • Link to your social media profiles. This is a great way to encourage your customers to connect with you and will help you convert sales later on.
