GLASGOW, Scotland, March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Web hosting and domain name company Easyspace gets UK business mobile for less than the cost of a cup of coffee
Leading web hosting and domain name company Easyspace has been chosen as the UK distribution partner for the goMobi website builder, a confirmed vendor on Google's GetMo initiative. The GetMo initiative was launched today (March 14) by Google to promote to UK businesses the benefits of building mobile specific websites.
Easyspace is providing the fulfilment platform for the goMobi website builder. The product is available from Easyspace for just £25.20 p.a., that's a 40% discount on the regular price of £42.00 p.a. Customers will also have the option to test the goMobi mobile website builder for free.
Sarah Haran, Managing Director of Easyspace, said: "Easyspace is proud to have been chosen as the UK partner for goMobi as part of this new Google initiative to promote the business benefits of having a mobile website. There has been an incredible rise in the use of mobile phones in the UK and we're delighted to be enabling businesses to react to this by providing them with the tools they need to go mobile. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee every month, businesses will be able to tap into a whole new mobile customer base."
The product is incredibly easy to use, highly functional, and incredibly cost effective. goMobi offers all the mobile specific features businesses need to get on the mobile web today, including click-to-call, m-commerce support, maps and directions, social networking, and custom analytics to mention but a few.
Google recently reported a 166% increase in mobile searches for top retail brands over Christmas in the UK. Yet 79% of large UK online advertisers had no mobile site to serve that traffic.
Eileen O'Sullivan, COO and CFO of goMobi parent company dotMobi, said: "We're excited to be part of Google's GetMo initiative in the UK with Easyspace and are looking forward to getting UK business on mobile."
Sarah Haran of Easyspace added: "It's vital that businesses showcase their products and services to customers who are increasingly mobile phone savvy. For online retailers a mobile version of your desktop website is an absolute must. Achieving this doesn't require long-term business planning. With the help of Easyspace you can create goMobi sites in a matter of minutes and the web pages created will work on any phone. By using goMobi through Easyspace, you'll be able to access a whole new audience which in turn could become a whole new customer base."
