HI Warriors

You may have seen some of my posts around here at Warrior forum. My company launched a mobile site builder about six months ago and were doing well. But not as good as we'd like.

Been killin it on social media, and working on our SEO. Been kicking SEM in the but with a decent monthly budget. We've made the executive decision that we're going to kick our professional services into high gear, as the platform isnt getting as much traction with mobile marketers as we expected. It might just be that here at warrior forum, everyone is a little bit ahead of the game -- and not many marketers are fully embracing mobile yet.

There is also a pretty good amount of high quality competition out there. Just wanted to put it out there, and see if anyone in Warrior Land has any experience building web SaaS and getting marketing in such a way that attracts a TON of users.

Like i said earlier, we are doing fine, we just want to take it to the moon. we have over 800 registered marketing and development firms and consultants around the country already using the platform. Of those 800, about 150 are what we would call active.

--- Please take a look at our site, and watch our videos and provide any feedback as to weather or not our message is clear and if our videos are helpful. We need to blow this up, and get things going. We want to get 3000 registered users and 600 active users as soon as possible!

      Hey Bonn,

      I just checked the website.
      To be honest with you... I think you have a great sollution and i also checked to see if it works on my iphone and i must say "it works pretty good" the sales video is also working nice on my iphone.

      What i dont like is the total look and feel of the website, if i compare this with other companies that sell mobile sollutions, i have to say i would go with one of them.

      Not that your product isn't any good (i don't know) but i know that you could and should spice up your layout. (make it more apealing)

      I wish you the best

      Regards,
      Nino

        Thank you so much for the feedback Nico! I think your right in a lot of ways. We do need a design spruce up. Most of us over here at GoMobile are development oriented, not necessarily designers. I think the next major expense is going to be graphic design to make our message more clear and appealing.

        Thanks again for the feedback!

          I found your site recently when searching for info on mobile sites. I spent 6 or 7 hours researching and went to many sms platform providers. Itry to research thoroughly and click on every link so it's not a fast process.

          One site a very annoying live Chat button that kept popping up on every page I was glad that wasn't you! LOL

          First comment is that when your landing page loads,as a future customer, I want to see what your mobile sites look like. Therefore what mine will look like. the second thing I'm looking for is price info.

          Put yourself in my shoes I spent hours researching, I'm getting tired of this and just want to find a provider.

          It would have been better for me to land on your Example page as a landing page (Minus the TEDX info that threw me)with your pricing below the fold.

          I know you're competing with upscale flash sites and gizmos on them but most times, for me, I want a profeessionally looking site with as much info on the landing page as possible. I dislike hunting.

          I would drop the event video with the beer and the guy wagging his tongue. I would drop the crayon font as well.

          The rest of the info is great for somebody who doesn't mind spending the time clicking and searching. If it was my site, I would spend a couple of hours on redesign and test it out.

          Lots of hard work you put into this. Good luck!

    Hi,

    I think your video just huge...lol would reduce it and on the freed up space put more 'selling' points...about your site. Some bullet points about the advantage to use your platform. It kind of hidden under your menu. Nobody watch video first
    Also in your footer don't understand this:
    "Pricing Information Free Mobile Site Builder." ???

      I love your sales video but the fact is there are visual learners and people who like to read things.

      Design for sure needs to be improved! A bit more sexy and sleek please with nice typography.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=RKJhgluTbGk - as for that, I don't know what that was about, all I saw were random shots of people drinking beer and no one using the QR code.

      For your examples page, you should change it more into a Case studies page and include some testimonials and thoughts from the clients. You partnered with TED, that's pretty big maybe you can promote that on the site more.

      Just a few of my thoughts.......

    bonn- Took a look at your offering when it first launched. Liked everything I saw, besides the one thing that kept me from buying......An unusual pricing structure.

    Your product would have great value to many and would be a real time saver for me. As someone who builds and sells mobile sites, I want a solution that I can host myself. I heard this argument from a few others on the forum as well.

    For me, I would use a solution like you offer if it was offered for a one time only fee to use for unlimited sites, or even a cost per site I develop using your site builder. I do not want any solution that I am unable to host myself and charges me per pageview or per month.

    It looks like you have a great product and I think sales would soar to resellers if you changed your pricing/hosting structure. Just my thoughts.
