Newcastle Upon Tyne (PRWEB UK) 10 November 2011
Dial LOCAL, based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, is one of the UK's leading 'new media' marketing companies, whose sole aim is to help small businesses keep up-to-date with the most effective methods of promotion.
They are already well known for their online video marketing service, that offers businesses the chance to have a powerful, broadcast quality commercial made by professional producers and editors, which is then broadcast on various video media sites. The purpose of which was to help small businesses make the most of the Internet and attract as many potential new customers as possible, at a time when many of them are struggling.
Now, they have launched a new mobile website service that goes one step further in the bid to help businesses utilise all that the web has to offer, and not miss out on potential new customers.
“90% of small business websites do not work properly when viewed on a mobile phone. This makes them difficult to navigate, the text is usually far too small to read clearly, and the page is too big for the screen. This is extremely frustrating, especially when you consider that most of us only visit a business’ website to find phone numbers, addresses and opening hours.
Many business owners may not see this as a big deal, but when you take into account that 41% of us browse websites on a mobile – a number that is set to rise even more over the coming months – then you realise just how many potential customers you are missing out on just because they are finding it difficult to find the information they need. This is where Dial LOCAL comes in,” explained Dial LOCAL’s Finance Director, Kieran O’Connor.
The new service offers businesses a fully mobile friendly website that runs alongside your existing website, and makes it easy to find all the important information the customer needs to be able to get in touch or to visit them directly, when viewed on a mobile phone.
This includes prominent working hours, integrated Google map to make finding where a company is located easier, and a prominent phone number that you simply click to call.
Each mobile website is also bespoke made to ensure it compliments the business’ brand, and comes with the guarantee that it will be set up within five working days.
“This is not about selling small businesses a whole new website – which can be very expensive – this is just about making sure that their website functions exactly how it should when people search for their services using their smart phone or iPad. Because your customers will either find you or they will find your competitors.
Basically, here at Dial LOCAL we just want you to get the most out of your existing website, so that you get more calls from customers, more business, and ultimately, more sales,” explained Kieran.
As an added incentive, for a brief period only, Dial LOCAL are offering small businesses the mobile website service at a one off cost of £249 plus VAT; with no monthly contract, set up fees, maintenance or on-going costs.
