The self-service tool converts existing small business websites to mobile format
AT&T has released Mobile Website Hosting, a new solution which allows small businesses to create their own web-site using the company’s Do-It-Yourself tool and auto-create a mobile version that is compatible and clearly viewed with smartphones.
The cloud-based service includes traditional AT&T Website Hosting and email services.
AT&T Mobile Website Hosting features automatic sync and updates to mobile site when changes occur on main website, saving time by avoiding maintaining two websites; and multiple design templates, enabling each mobile website to have its own unique look and feel.
The service also features click-to-call, making it easy for customers to contact small businesses; maps and directions, helping increase in-store traffic; mobile website analytics, enabling insights into customer search and buying patterns; and compatibility with all major smartphone platforms, maximizing exposure to mobile users.
AT&T Small Business Product Management VP Ebrahim Keshavarz said having a website is crucial for small businesses, which need to be accessible to their customers anytime and anywhere.
"With Mobile Website Hosting, we’re giving small businesses an easy and affordable way to literally convert their websites into mobile sites," Keshavarz said.
"Especially in today’s economy, small businesses are using every tool at their disposal to stay connected to their customers and keep the cash register ringing – and we’re committed to helping them do this with solutions like Mobile Website Hosting."
