Mobile Website Directory
Our mobile directories are designed as Mobile Websites but users may save to their phones for easy use like an App. This enhancement to your membership or business directories allows your users take the directories with them to search for local businesses – whatever they need on the fly! What’s great about our mobile website version is that it can be accessed using the same familiar URL as your digital edition (e.g. www.yourdirectory.com). When consumers reach the site, our product detects access from a mobile device and adjusts the media to optimize their local business search experience for a small screen.
Our developments in mobile technology create even more interactive access to our publishers’ content. All parties to your directory benefit from this mobile product. The features, the increased exposure, and especially the inclusion of advertisements bring even more value to your print advertising program.
There are a number of ways you can create income from your mobile directory. You can create a new monthly recurring income source for yourself or your company. Income can be generated through subscriptions, upgrades and advertising. You are able to control the directory members and pricing.
