Mobile Website Showcase [IMAGES]

Now we have a forum section dedicated to mobile marketing, I thought it would be a great idea if we had a thread where we can all post examples of mobile website designs we have either created ourselves or seen around the Internet.

IMPORTANT!
********************************************
Please ONLY post images of the mobile website - NO links.
This way we are not exposing anyone's code unnecessarily.
Also please do not include any actual links to the domain.
********************************************

To post an example image you can download the free mobile website emulator at: Mobilizer Mobile Emulator

This emulator will allow you to take a PNG screenshot right from within the program. Simple.

You can then upload the image to a free image hosting service such as: http://imgur.com/

Here's a simple one to get us started:

        I think there's a much bigger demand for mobile websites & the more resources we can put together, the better =)

          Mobile websites are fine. But apps are really where it is at. A website can work only so good on one phone and then AWESOME on another. Personally, I see apps as the way to go. A website as a back up is cool but with mobile just taking apps are better use of time.

            That's your opinion and you are welcome to it... however I strongly DISAGREE.

            Apps are great for big corporations but they are NOT a sensible solution for the average small local business owner. Think about if for just one second. Do you really think I am going to download apps for all my favorite local restaurants, bars, my plumber, my locksmith, my dentist, my mechanic, etc, etc? My phone would be full of these useless apps I use once in every blue moon.

            A MUCH more sensible AND cost effective solution is for small business owners to have mobile optimized versions of their website. This way we need only bookmark our favorite sites and we don't need to download a separate app for each and every business. We can then easily access their website whenever we need to.

            Besides, when I (the typical person) am looking for a service provider in my local area do you REALLY think I would go to the app store and search there? Of course I would not. I would go to Google and do my search. What am I searching for at Google? A website!

            Sorry to say but websites are definitely where it is at for small local businesses - there is no denying it.

            Let's not get off topic. This thread is for mobile website design examples.

              I agree with that. I routinely use my Yelp and Foresquare apps to seek out local businesses in my area. Local businesses should leverage the popularity of apps geared to local markets that are already widely adopted by consumers.

              Google pushes advertisers to optimize sites for mobile


              GIGAOM By Ryan Kim Sep. 21, 2011, 3:00pm PT

              Google has been prodding mobile website owners to optimize their sites for mobile. Now, it’s taking a more aggressive step by announcing that it will consider whether an advertiser has a mobile optimized site when assessing ads quality for all AdWords campaigns.
              What this means is that in the coming weeks when Google looks at how to decide which ads to feature, it will consider how well a site is tailored for mobile devices, things like whether it works well for touch, is made for smaller screens, has shorter load times and avoids Flash. To be sure, advertisers who adhere to these guidelines won’t be guaranteed better visibility. But connecting to mobile optimized landing pages that perform better in AdWords will now be a factor in determining ad placement. This will only affect advertisers who advertise on mobile and won’t affect ads served on PC browsers.
              This is interesting because Google rarely talks about what affects keyword quality scores in AdWords. Advertisers bid on ad placement based on keywords, but Google looks at a range of factors like click-through rates and ad quality to determine what goes where. So ads that are considered to be beneficial to users can be featured higher than ads whose owners sometimes bid more in AdWords.
              This isn’t the first time Google has pushed advertisers to optimize for mobile. Last November, it said it would limit ad serving to mobile devices if advertisers directed people to landing pages with a lot of Flash content. And it’s put out a string of blog posts on the topic and released a simple tool for businesses to build mobile sites. Now, it’s saying that good mobile landing pages aren’t just devoid of Flash but have other characteristics that appeal to mobile users. Those characteristics include prioritizing content and making layouts simpler. And it’s now putting some weight behind its suggestions.
              Why does Google care about this? Well, it can encourage more people to click on ads if it can ensure that the landing pages look good on mobile devices. Google is, at its heart, about advertising, so it makes sense that it wants to improve the experience, which should ultimately benefit the bottom line. But it’s also a recognition that the web is different on mobile devices, and as people move toward smartphones and tablets, it requires some adjustment.
              Google said it’s in the interest of advertisers and web publishers to embrace mobile optimization. Google has said early this year that 79 percent of top advertisers do not have a mobile optimized site. But a recent study found that 61 percent of users are unlikely to return to a mobile website that was hard to access from a phone. Mobile consultant Tomi Ahonen wrote today that jeweler Tiffany & Co. optimized its mobile website and found that sales of jewelry on its mobile website grew by 125 percent.
              While Google has a stake in optimized mobile websites, it’s not a bad idea for publishers and advertisers to get on board. The world is going mobile and yet, it’s still surprising to see how many websites are not built with mobile users in mind. This is not just a lost opportunity to engage with a customer, but it’s potentially lost business as well.

              I have to agree totally with your view on the notion that apps are the way forward. There is such an importance that has to be placed on any business large or small having their own presence on mobile as the growth margin for each business using mobile along side the web is tremendous. Apps are a tool for enabling a quicker use of a particular source and will never take over the search engine optimised mobile web page

              Strongly agree - APPs are fine for large companies, BUT NOT local business owners. Local Business Owners simply want traffic and sales - not apps to download, etc.

              Business Owners are struggling to understand the importance of mobile presence as it is, and adding APPS (and yes, they do have value) just adds more possible confusion,

            I have to disagree with this as well. Many mobile apps are quite expensive and you need to create different versions for different mobile platforms (iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile...). A mobile website can be programmed to look like an app, yet can be viewed on most phones. Yes there will be the occasional phone where things won't look right, but if you follow general mobile standards, it will look correct on 95% of phones.

            Additionally, studies have shown that people are more likely to stay within their mobile phone browser and visit sites in that framework than load up different apps for different businesses. There are some exceptions where apps make sense, but I would say those are for much larger companies with huge marketing budgets. For most small businesses an app is not cost effective when you have to essentially quadruple the price for getting one for all different types of phones.

              I have to agree with you here. Major American companies do this - Regions Bank for one, ideally if you want to make it feel like an app just save it to the home screen of your phone and there you go. I had to do that when I had a Droid for a lot of sites that didn't make a site for the Android Market. At first I was kind of PO'ed but after a couple sites had this I was all good.

            This is exactly why the world is facing a major problem of pandemic proportions. I sure hope you don't tell people this stuff as advice.
            Here is what is really the case with this APP business

            81% of users prefer a mobi site over an app for researching prices
            79% prefer a mobi site for reviews
            63% prefer to use a mobi site for purchasing.

            source-google's GOMO initiative.

            APPS are NOT what people need nor is it what the consumer is using. So please understand what you are saying and realize this is no joke either
            Billions of dollars were lost this year and the problem we are facing is worldwide and of Pandemic proportions.

              Bonn, I totally agree with you! 80% of Mobile Apps are only used once...

              Small Businesses not only don't need Apps, but they don't have a sufficient customer base or returning customers, to justify the investment.

              Selling a Business something that is not in their best interest is just bad business.

              Feel the same. One of my potential clients is getting an app developed but doesn't have a mobile site. What happens when a user visits their website on a phone? It's going to look like crap and the app will sitting in iTunes.

              I'm on the mobile web way more then playing with apps. Some great looking sites being displayed!

            I have to also disagree with you. The reason applications are not the way to go because they are way to expensive to maintain and it is not feasable for the small business owners to invest $1000's of dollars to have a developer create a application and maintain it.

            See here is the problem with applications what platform are you going to write your application for ... IOS, Android, Windows ... I did not say Blackberry because it seems like they just pushed back BB 10.

            Now here is where it gets expensive you will need a developer who knows who to code for each phone.

            Then the other thing is you will have to update the code for each phone ... That is very expensive buddy ... Now if you are a big corporations ... then you can afford to do it as most big corp are implementing bring your own device and we will support it.

            Your best bet is to look at develop mobile web application using technologies like Jquery mobile and HTML5.

      Have you created all of the mobile websites that you posted here, Will?
      If you did I just have to say that they look awesome. Can you make sites like these with you templates? I'm asking cause I'm really interested in buying your WSO.

I saw one that I liked that has a monthly fee of 24 or 27 to join so I could do the samples myself but I was wondering if I was the one who actually made the whole mobile sire, not only the Demo for business

    Hey WillR,

    Did you create those great looking mobile sites with only your php product or are they a mix and match of other design techniques?


    Also what image format works best form mobile sites. Im just starting a mobile design for my day job employer and i just ran the url through the validater and im only getting a 55% score? Im using png because i need the transparency .

      Mark,

      They are not actually sites I created... I'm flattered you'd think that but... no!

      I just want to give people a look at all the different mobile sites out there so we can all get some inspiration for our future designs.

      The best image formats to use for mobile websites are gif and/or jpg. Try and steer clear from using png images. Some older phones don't render them very well. If you can get away with it then just use a gif or jpeg image and put the background color in that image rather than using a transparent ibackground.

        Thanks for your reply willR, i will fire up cs5 tonight and change my images to gif and include the same background color to those images the same as the sites background color.

        Cheers.

        Some awesome examples being put up here.

        After an hour of messing about in cs5 i made my changes from png to gif format. All good apart from my buttons.

        Im using kompozer to build the mobile site and when i set the background color to my choice of #D4D4D4, a kind of light grey, and then go to cs5 and set the background layer of the button to the same #D4D4D4. But when i insert that image into the site the two colors are very slightly different!! which is a pain!

        So just for those buttons im going to have to leave them at png. The site loads ok into all the emulators i know of and in the W3C mobileok checker im getting a score of 65% so its an improvement.

          My work around for that is to take the image into one of your editor, create a background, use a color picker to change the color to match the background you want to use, then save as a gif. Still get that transparent look while going with gif or jpg.
          Hope that helps!

            LOL...great golfing analogies....I just love being out on the course ;-)

            Ahhh where would I start, I could write a book....now there's an idea lol

            I guess my basic rule (tip) is to combine simplicity with design so your mobile pages look good as well as providing the function they are designed for! This helps in being able to charge a realistc fee for your hard work...it seems there are way to many people out there are under selling this service when there is absolutely no need.

          I have a question regarding the showcases you've posted.

          All of them appear to be in the Safari mobile browser. I am wondering if consumers can still find the app in the app store; or is it only mobile ready?

          Are you still going through the Apple developer process?
          Do you wrap your app inside PhoneGap or Appcelerator?

          One last thing, a majority people in my area already have websites, and very likely are contracted to a specific design agency, etc and they may not give FTP access (or other) to you when they can do the mobile design site themselves.

          So I am wondering how you deal with situations like this? Do you just create the HTML mobile ready website and then send the client the files?

          I am very curious about this.

          Also, your mobile website showcase has made me very interested in your WSO too.

            Hi Zardon

            Who is your question for?

            As far as other web development companies not giving access to the FTP details, I would stronly recommend getting your client to get these details from them for you as the web/hosting company should provide this information to the client and it they dont I'd recommend they change providers. after all said and done it is their website and not the developers!

            The other option is to host it for them seperately although its not ideal, there are many companies out there hosting mobile web sites on thier own servers for clients...not something I'm a fan of.

              Hey Stewart, Your sites looks clean & professional however I slowed down on the Opening Hours page.
              I see that this page could be utilized far better as well as it looks inconsistant with your other pages, more like a stock photo and repetitive content to fill up the page.
              My suggestion for what its worth, is to have something like your photo again, as you are your brand, then Open Monday through Saturday 9.00am - 7.00pm.
              Click Here to call me ...etc
              Just my 2cents worth.
              All the best

        Thanks for the compliments, much appreciated ;-)

        The designs I've posted here so far are standalone, I've tested all the popular wordpress 'mobile' plugins in the past but I'm one of 'those' who believe having a dedicated mobile pressence on a m. or mobile. subdomain or .mobi url is the best way to go also you have totally control over the design and functionality etc...

          Can't you have a dedicated mobile presence using the wordpress mobile plugins. All you have to do is install the wordpress plugin on the m. or mobi subdomain correct?

            Wordpress plugins arent creating a dedicated mobile version of the website they are installed on, in so much as they are simply serving up a mobile optimised version of the desktop version...meaning they are not 'standalone' versions....if that makes sense :confused:

      I love these. Awesome looking landing pages. Are you selling these in a WSO? Would you sell them? I'm interested in these as templates to use for my own clients.

      With a button or link to the main mobile site to skip the offer if not wanted, these landing pages are the way to go.

      Would you use another index page somehow?

      Thanks!

        The problem is those designs are very graphic heavy. This is fine for people who are comfortable with photoshop or other graphics programs (obviously Neil is) but if you are not then you won't be able to edit much of the design yourself so it won't be very customizable for your own clients.

          I really dont see this as a 'problem' with my designs Will, anyone can produce graphics these days with the likes of Gimp etc...sure my designs are a bit more 'creative' than others but any graphic and colour scheme can be used to produce a simpler looking page. As for the rest of the page they are simply coded and easily customisable...

          At the end of the day whichever template someone decides to use to create mobile pages or sites they will have to be able to create and add a graphic or two in order to customise it to their clients needs.

            I was just letting the person know that if they got their hands on your designs they would still need to have some graphics experience to edit and use them with their own clients. Those who are comfortable editing such designs would find it just as easy to create them from scratch themselves.

            Neil B
            Neil,

            Sorry, I didn't mean it is as a 'problem' as such, I just know from experience dealing with a lot of beginner marketers out there and they don't know how to edit or manipulate graphics at all. I love your designs and think they look great and by all means people should be just as creative with their own sites if they can... but I know a lot of people can't be.

            The other issue is for people to be able to edit most of these files they would need a program like Photoshop which most people do not have. A beginner wouldn't be able to replicate your designs in gimp - it takes a bit of a creative touch which you obviously have. Chances are those who are comfortable editing such designs could just as easily create similar designs from scratch themselves.

            That's all I was saying. It's not a problem just letting the poster know the reality. It's not as easy as you just giving them the designs because unless they are competent with graphics, they wont be able to do much with them.

              Thanks Will I'll take your compliment as a Birthday pressie as I'm ANOTHER year older today...
              but in total denial

              I appreciate that it can be difficult or even impossible for 'some' to produce high quality graphics due to lack of skills, creativity, software etc BUT this can be easily and cheaply overcome by outsourcing (to people like me lol) if needed as long as the retail price can stand it...by providing a bit of 'design' the retail price can be pushed up considerably making it more than worth the extra cost.

              This is not an advert for my services as I'm sure there are plenty out there who could offer this service, it's more of a pointer to a solution for those who feel they just cant do it.

                  Hi Elis

                  Ok...there really isnt an easy way to layout everything you need to do in order to fully optimise a design for mobile plus we all have our own ways of handling it but personally I control pretty much all of the layout via CSS and all image resizing for width and screen rotation is also CSS controlled.

                  Sorry I couldnt be of more help but it would require writing a full tutorial on the subject and I'm sure there must be plenty out there on the interweb or maybe checkout WillR's WSO or Quentin's course both excellent in my opinion.

                  Hope this points you in the right direction...

        With a button or link to the main mobile site to skip the offer if not wanted, these landing pages are the way to go.

        Would you use another index page somehow?

        Thanks!
        Thanks FormerWageSlave

        Funny you should ask...I will be launching my next WSO soon and yes these designs will be included....the option to link to the desktop website AND or the full version of the mobile site are already included on each page.

        Yes you can use a seperate index page and use these for dedicated mobile marketing campaigns.

        Hope this helps...

        I'm interested too about platform you used. By the way, is there a lot of CSS involved in such design?

            I thought so and I have to admit that it's nice work
            One more question. Can you share what setting you use for CSS? I mean how do you build it? I tried to play with CSS but didn't get shrink effects.
            My small idea for you, make some WSO course (?) I'm sure many will jump on it ;-)

        Ray,

        I believe the screen dimensions of an iPhone are 320 x 480 pixels. It's a good start. When using an image type landing page like that you are never going to have the one size fit all phones properly. So just go after the most popular devices. The width is the main issue though. Make sure that is 320 pixels or less. The height isn't so much of an issue because the user can easily scroll up or down.

        Hi Ray

        I usually work to a width of 320 when creating the designs ;-)

      The reason I ask people do NOT include links to the mobile sites is to help protect the source code and hard work of those site owners. If someone is posting an image of their own website and they have created the code from scratch themselves, then they are more than welcome to post a direct link to their website.

      I myself have had issues with people stealing my source code and re-selling it as their own on this very forum so I know how easily it can be done.

      I hope you guys understand!

    One thing to remember with a lot of the fancy sites here is they are phone specific in that they look great on an iPhone but try them on some other phones and they degrade a lot.

    I have just been through testing the ones I could actually access on my HTC and in most cases it was pretty sad.

    So looks arnt everything.

    As you can see in this graph the android market is really starting to kick off so better to build fluid width sites to reach all phone styles.

      Q
      it's really interesting how the browser specific site problem has now crossed over into the mobile platform. Same problem.

      The trick is to master what is called responsive design. Having a responsive design basically means that the site reconfigures itself in a logical way based on the type of browser it's being viewed.

      It's a little more work during the design process, but HTML5 has a lot of tools to help with this. Good stuff.

    Here are my meagre efforts. I actually thought they were quite good till I saw Neil's!

    Towtruck is built with Quentin's script, restaurant built with Will's.

    Both sites have menus underneath the text, but unfortunately the whole page doesn't load up on the emulator.

        Hi Anthony,

        That isn't my design in the example. It is a big UK company, but the design looks real simple and could easily be replicated using the template Neil, Will or Quentin offer.

        Great looking mobile web sites!

        I am curious if the real estate and car sites may be using data bases.

        Is there a data base app that can be incorporated into a mobile web site to show to car dealers and real estate agents?

        Thanks WillR for starting this thread...

      They're not really mobile sites as such they are more mobile landing pages. I believe he would just be using a graphics program such as Photoshop to create the unique designs since the majority of the landing page is graphics and then an optin form down the bottom.

      Hi Mark

      WillR is correct, the designs I have displayed so far are mobile marketing landing pages created from scratch using the correct code (depending on the function required), CSS etc with custom graphics designed in PS and FW.

    Since a few posters here are actually creating these sites, I have a question. I have several mobile site templates that I use, but one has turned out to be my favorite. It has the horizontal bars as the menu like in a good number of these. I also want to be able to create templates that are more icon oriented, like an iPhone or Android, but I have not seen any templates or WSO that offers this.

    Does anyone know where I can pick up a good mobile templates that uses iPhone icons as the menu items? Thanks in advance!

        Hi GooBingYah

        To clarify my statement what I meant was I'm not a fan of those companies offering mobilization services who then host the mobile site on their server and charge for hosting based on the amount of traffic that mobile site receives...they are also getting any SEO benifits which should be going to the site owner.

        I prefer to host my clients mobile sites on their own server so they have full control and only pay the annual hosting fee...yes I provide the hosting and they keep any SEO benifits...it is their site after all!!!

        Hope this helps

          What if they already have a site and it is hosted somewhere else. You are not going to move their main site to your server just so you can make the recurring on the hosting?

          This is what I am struggling with as the most I think I can get away with for a simple jquery mobile site is $500 but if I am setting it up on http://m.companydomain.com I am not getting the recurring income which is huge in this biz.

          Guess you have to get creative and upsell them on SEO or google places on the backend.

            Hi JBroyer44

            You should definatley upsell any additional services you provide that can be useful to current or prospective clients...that's the name of the game!

            If they already have hosting then I am always more than happy to setup everything on their current server with the view to a possible switch over to my hosting as and when their contract term runs out...I never put down someone elses services in order to grab a bit of hosting. However if their current solution isnt up to the job then I will recommend they upgrade with the company they are with now OR give them a deal to switch to my services.

            I'm not sure why you have set a maximum price you 'think' you can get away with....create the NEED for you product or service, Price Condition your prospect correctly and charge accordingly....works for me!

      Hi B and B

      Thanks for the compliment bud

      Using templates is a great way to get started and learn about mobile page layout etc...if you want to produce high impact mobile pages then a combination of skills is required including grahics, html and CSS.

      What I do is I create a live, working example of a mobile landing page customised to the business I'm pitching, then use my simulator tool so they can see a working example on their pc plus I'll demo it on a smartphone THEN I upsell them to a full mobile site...works like a charm without breaking a sweat.

      Plus once the prospective client sees what you can do they will sometimes ask you to take a look at thier regular site...I get a lot of this ;-)

      Hope this helps

      I was going to mention the same problem - this thread is getting massively derailed.

      This thread was created for the purpose of sharing mobile website examples only. If you like a design you see then hit the thanks button. If you have questions about a design then pm the person who posted it. If you want to sell designs then do so in a wso.

      Let's get it back on track. Share your designs and if you dont have any to share then please don't fluff out the thread with other info - it helps noone.

    Also - how are these examples rating on the compliance scale? I am not sure how to look at that sometimes - I was checking one client site for a build, and it came up 79% - pretty high - but it was hell to navigate, and had some flash - so what should I glean from that?

    Other sites that might look good come up 0%...

    Should they all validate 100%? - who's a *MooRoo on this?

      @MoneymagnetMagnate, thanks for the nice reply I use DudaMobile. I use different methods when I design these guys, but the top left one is the only one that came from a pure flash based website and while many builders don't work with flash, I built it from scratch. Unlike the others, that one costs pretty much the most on account that Duda automatically updates your mobile when you update your website. Unfortunately, with flash, I have to go in and manually do things. It's not a hassle though, she hardly ever touches her website. If you ever think about using their platform, just PM and I'll help you get started. Thanks again for the comment and have a great Friday

      I am not sure if this is meant for me or not, but all I really do is design and export my design to whomever is handling the account. I have some full clients of my own to where I fully handle their account and also receive the residuals but in most part, it's designing and that's all. As far as coding and so forth, Duda pretty much takes care of the rest.

  • Profile picture of the author Mobileico
    I use Photoshop to create the graphics, but as far as templates, I use them sometimes and then I tear the templates down and add stuff that our templates don't offer like a Social Media Control Panel. Most of what I work with is a simple drag and drop method. I have coined them "Social Media Control Panels", but honestly they're nothing new. You can see them on standard websites everywhere, and barely on mobiles. I really love them as I can design different icons or buy some that I like from other people. The best thing I like about them is that you or your customer never have to physically leave the site and then check in go find the Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, etc. If the site already has a SMCP, all you have to do to visit one of their social channels is just press one of the icons.

      The only thing I would mention for the second site is maybe trying a text color that is in more contrast to the background color. Remember that a lot of mobile users are going to be people on the move, out in sunlight, so the easier you can make it for them to read the content, the better. I think some people would have a lot of trouble reading that text in really bright or really dark situations.

      Just a thought.

I think some people would have a lot of trouble reading that text in really bright or really dark situations.

        Just a thought.
        hi Will,

        Thanks for the suggestion!

        Actually, the text color is sharper and more contrast on the smartphones than the screenshot. For some reason, the simulator doesn't show the true color.

        waiyi

      Absolutely Love the first one, very elegant!
      The second one is going to cause you problems because the text color is too dark against the black background, try for a little more contrast, so that mobile users aren't struggling to read the text.

          Hey Will, I actually just invested in your WSO last night (after reviewing several different ones--great stuff!), are you going to be releasing a template similar to the Grimaldi example?

          I really like how the buttons are more concise as opposed to full-width!

          The curve makes it look sharp also!

        I've just been on the "Grimaldis Pizzeria" mobile site and the main website and wanted to ask the same question, and it works so well.

        I almost want to apologise. Looking at the great websites I've taken my eye of the ball and not started at all. I want back in! It's such a great opportunity for marketers and if I (We) don't take action then I'll be kicking myself for a long time.

        It's so great to see the wonderful sites Warriors are making "thumbs up!"

    Great Showcase BTW... I haven't heard anyone discuss mobile squeeze pages. I have put one together I am now selling on fiverr. Thanks to Quentin - who taught me all I know about mobile website building. Thought this template would be good for our im niche...

    Bit over seeing all these Iphones though, HTC is king in my books - sorry folks I know it's a bit off topic ;-)....

    If this question has been asked here before, please excuse me but I was pondering this a little while ago.

    When a website is visited by a mobile phone user and they are redirected to the mobile site, like Grimaldi's how can you ensure the mobile phone doesn't revert back to the mobile when you really want to visit the main site?

    Thank you

      Guys with fantastic work, do you have any issue with mobile browsers compatibility? I started to build website from the scratch using CSS and HTML. All thanks to you for such great inspiration. I found that Safari have no problems at all, but Opera Mini and Skyfire on iPhone have two issues:
      1. in landscape mode letters and everything is usually bigger, right? and this is what I see when I turn my iPhone. When I go to another page in landscape, it shrinks, but still match the whole page. It`s not bigger anymore it supposed to be. When I turned back to vertical mode, page didn`t shrink, but rather stayed the same and I could move that page from left to write, up and down as it was PC website not mobile. Interesting is that when I went to another page in vertical mode, it resumed to normal mobile size. I played with all kind of changes with CSS to try to fix it, but no success.
      2. in Opera Mini, "header" never get stretched to the end on the right side, even though is set to 100%
      I know is not support forum here, but please at least let me know if you have the same issues. Thanks

      Christmas Themes Anyone!!

      Has anyone thought of approaching businesses with a Christmas themed mobile site.

      Last year people went crazy for Fan page Christmas themes, so i thought I would make available some Christmas ones if there was enough interest.

      Below are 8 of 34 Christmas themes I quickly put together. You can create hundred if not thousands more with switching out the logo, icons and creating a new color theme.



      Give me your feedback and thoughts.

        Hi Ron, Love the look and layout of your templates, could you maybe PM me with pricing of them?

        On a different note, when I check out your sig link on my HTC Wildfire your template looks squashed and awkward (Now I'm not sure if this is something to do with the settings on my phone). When viewed in landscape mode everything looks great, but not so in portrait. The logo is difficult to read, the tap to call feature drops below the home button, the wording on the five wide icons becomes shortened, and the about button drops below the other 3.

        Please don't think I am being critical as I love how it looks in landscape, just thought you should know... and you did ask

          Funny that I have a HTC wildfire as well and did notice that the 5 wide menu doesn't look too crash hot in portrait.

          I am and will be dropping this down to either 3 or 4 wide.

          With my more recent templates i have opted for the icons as my menu and only going 3 wide like in the above images.

          The logo I have been playing around with and again I am leaning towards a more central and smaller logo with a separate background image.

    Hi all!

    I read, mostly, the first part of page 1 of this thread, so I might be talking old stuff.

    It was mentioned that Mobile Apps cost a lot - how much is a lot?
    It was said that you must have an app for each type of phone.
    It was said that mobile websites are better and can be used as a mobile app.

    --- One mobile app will work with iPhone, Android and html phone - the exact same app, and work perfectly with them all.

    Yes, folks Do use their apps to locate local businesses - Why?

    --- Because local apps will offer discounts and daily offers not found on a website/blog.

    --- Mobile apps have "Push Technology" that allows a business to Push a text message to all who subscribe that have an open rate of 97% vs. email which is usually around 5% to 10% max.

    --- Contests and frequent visitors get discounts too.

    That is just the start of this local apps revolution taking place.

    The web will always have its place, but mobile is where it's at for local businesses.

    Everybody takes their Car Keys, Wallet and Cell phone whenever they leave the house, not so with their laptops.

    QR codes will be displayed everywhere shortly and folks will display then in their store windows, their counter tops, etc.

    When "Miss Shopper", (pardon the gender stereotype), wants new shoes, she can find bargains for just that day - or just a few hours a day (during low traffic days), just by looking on her smart phone, (and only for Smart Phone Users).

    I can put any form or optin on an app that can go on a website

    Anyway - enough rant - time is the best teacher here.

      So, give us some inside info on how your affiliate link "Smart Phone Apps Maker" works?

      What's your cost? Does the user have to download the app? Does the client own it or pay monthly?
      It doesn't look a heck of a lot different from a mobile site. What would be the extra features besides text push?

      Thanks...

        At some point, it's expected that HTML5 will be advanced enough to allow push notifications from a mobile website.

        I prefer HTML5 for my mobile sites whenever possible for that very reason.

        It will be interesting to see how the field evolves, and how quickly, for sure!

    Here's a mobile site for a new customer of mine. I just purchased Quentin's new Wordpress CMS WSO to try it out. I changed the button graphics to 3D which was super simple in Photoshop.



    It was very easy to set up in Wordpress and Quentin's videos explain a lot. I haven't even watched them all yet and still got this far.

    So my mobile arsenal includes.

    1. Two of Quentin's WSOs. One as regular HTML and other as Wordpress CMS
    2. Will's WSO with his super fast and super easy template (looking forward to the second one).
    3. Joe Motion's Mobile Business Plus WSO which is another mobile CMS offering.

    So I think I can pretty much cover anything a client wants. From quick and simple, to more complex, to even handing over a complete CMS site to them.

        My services and products are worth the prices I charge for them. I don't expect a business to give me anything for free, and would never ask for that.

        I may offer to add something to a service package I'm doing for a client if we already have an established relationship, but I never ever lead with "free".

        I really like what Jason Fladlien said in his WP Pro "sell-inars" - if you need to it's ok to start with a reasonable price for your mobile sites ($500). Get 10 of those under your belt and you'll begin to see that they are worth more, and so are your services. (That's my paraphrase - but the essence is there.)

        You've got it Kate!...By going in with a free offer straight off the bat you immediately make your services AND expertise worthless...people associate price with quality which is why 'price condition' clients during any presentation is absolutely essential.

    Neil B I really like just the landing page concept combined with QR codes makes it a easy concept to launch for just about any service oriented business.

        Do you offer them a landing page site for free (or at a discount) just to prove that it works....and then hit them with a full mobile site once they're hooked?

        If not, do you think that would be a good strategy to get customers to trust us that mobile marketing works?

        Oh, and in the Hair Design landing page, what happens when you tap the Touch Here To Book Now button? Does it just call the salon or does it go to some sort of email or contact page? Basically how do you track that leads are coming from the landing page?

        I want to try this with one my customers

          Hi Mike

          If you've caught any of my other posts you'll no my feelings about giving stuff away for free, the ONLY time I'd even consider it is IF they go for a package over a couple of grand and then it would only be a single landing page...so basically I dont give anything away.

          On that particular mobile marketing landing page it calls the client salon...

          Hope this helps

            I agree completely, Neil. I've never offered any product free to a client as a lead in.

            When people do it with me I'm (quite frankly) immediately suspicious. My grandmother always told me that very few things are really free in life, and she was right. (She was also very wise.)

            My services and products are worth the prices I charge for them. I don't expect a business to give me anything for free, and would never ask for that.

            I may offer to add something to a service package I'm doing for a client if we already have an established relationship, but I never ever lead with "free".

            I really like what Jason Fladlien said in his WP Pro "sell-inars" - if you need to it's ok to start with a reasonable price for your mobile sites ($500). Get 10 of those under your belt and you'll begin to see that they are worth more, and so are your services. (That's my paraphrase - but the essence is there.)

      I totally agree with you Quentin and that's why in my new thread I am releasing a step by step video on how to turn 1 simple template into as many as your heart desires.

      I have removed this link to my thread on jquerymobile as a moderator has closed my thread. Don't know why.

      All by simply switching out the logo, icons and css theme. It is really very simple when you get the hang of it.

      However there will always be a place for premium templates. lol

    Hi, thought I would add a few more of mine to the honey pot before I went to bed. I have been playing with some transparency here lately and have rather gotten addicted to it.

        It is done using CSS3:

        CSS Image Opacity / Transparency

        Note that CSS3 is not currently supported by all browsers but it will be soon. You can still use it, it just means on those browsers that do not support it, the transparent feature will just be solid not transparent.

        Hi Harimon,
        Thank you very much for the compliment. I guess I was too late to answer a question was directed at ME, but yes, I did use CSS3. Feel free to PM me if you have any direct questions to me. I would be happy to answer them for you.

      I'm rather liking the transparency look too and can achieve it with css quite easily.

      Just a few questions in relation to it:

      1. I know not all browsers support it, but what proportion of phones does that amount to?

      2. What width of image is recommended for background image and how do you float it?

      I know height will vary depending on the size of area you wish the background to cover, but is there a recommended width for image and do you set it to center and repeat?

      3. What is your preferred opacity setting - 0.6, 0.8 or whatever?

      I apologize to Will if this is not the correct thread for these type of questions.

      BTW excellent thread. Thank you to Will for starting it and everyone who has contributed to it. I shall do the same myself in the next few days hopefully.

  • No offense intended Mobileco, I was just looking for the answer from anywhere at the time...

    I like your presentations - great stuff, and any tips or tricks you can share in that respect are always appreciated...for instance, I'm trying to figure out that app button look, as exampled above...nice look for an auto dealer site or similar application -

    Keep up the good work!

    I have to tell you though, my holiday cards sending are always usually belated...they usually end up arriving around Valentines day...(or Easter) :rolleyes:

      @MoneyMagnetMagnate thanks on the compliments and no offense taken. You did nothing wrong, you were only searching for knowledge. I must admit, my knowledge of CSS or HTML is very limited and my skills have majorly been in the design area. I try to keep things as simple as possible and use space effectively. I know on this transparency trick, which a few friends showed me how with CSS, it didn't look as nice without it. It just ads a dynamic element to it. You can actually go into Photoshop instead and create your buttons and add the transparency that way and then bring them into the area you want it at (which is my next area of concentration with design). Good luck; Keep searching for knowledge and looking around for answers. I never stop.
