    Ok I've read An e-book About Emailing small Businesses Form Google Maps And Telling them Blah blah why they should have a Mobile site And Offer them to make it for them as They simply don't have the Knowledge Or time! Iwas thinking of Calling them Instead of Emailing them to Increase conversion!

    BUT I made this thread to ask if anyone has tried this And about how much you Would Charge to make The Mobile site for them? as the E-book said around 225$ Please give me some feedback as I think this is a GOOD way to make some dough! :7:

    Well Ive had quite some success with Mobile Marketing as a whole, looking for a partner right now, but besides that, Im not sure what your question, but you have to be able to talk on the phone and know what you are talking about.

    Actually, i havent had that many clients wanting mobile sites, when they do its usually for a very specific reason. Find out what would be useful to a small biz on the phone and convince them. Easy as that.

    Don't waste your time on all businesses. It won't relate to most of them.

    Target restaurant owners who have flash based websites and PDF menus.

    Tell them you will make their menu display on all mobile devices and make them feel ashamed to have flash/pdf websites when smartphones can't read that rubbish.

    Say people search for restaurants on their mobile phones right before they make a buying decision and they are missing out. Tell them that these types of folks are "influencers" who use the best phones and love to comment on social media and web 2.0 websites like Yelp.

    Ask them if they want to look uncool and inaccessible? Restaurants hate that.

    They will adore you. :)

    PS: As for price? Test a bunch of different pricing points. $150 - $500 is a good starting range.

    PPS: Toss in a special deal where you can add their menus/store hours to Google Places/Yelp/Foursquare/whatever is hot today.

    I see alot of websites with old very out of date web designs, you could higher web designers and then have them do the work.

    Best candidates for mobile website prospects are in to andvertising "Specials" and are coupon oriented.

    They "get it" when you explain the concept

    Google Places listing has the coupon feature too which makes your pitch even better. G is behind this

    Pizza Places - independent not chain

    Glitzy glam bars going for the younger crowd - happy hour promos, holiday nights specials

    Go beyond selling just websites by offering to setup a SMS list for them. Get the punters to send a text message and join.

    Phoning works best to targeted prospects. Use accurate phone-verified lists of local businesses. we use a 1 minute pitch for each type, then send a Fax. Never call back, just let genuine prospects call us.

    Hey guys I no longer do this lol but Ashok It can be good if you can write a good sales pitch, and yes Calling them can be better if you have the right script to say! Makes them feel like a real business ha

    Excuse me for not being all that up on mobile phones, but what's the use of a 'mobile website', when the majority of today's 'smart-phones', can read webpages w/out any issue?

    For instance, my samsung A900 through sprint can access and show the same website as that of my Firefox browser on my home pc?

    What am I missing?

    Thanks for the clarification....

    The answer is that most standard websites have too much information on them which is fine when you are sat at a PC.
    People on the go using mobile need to access what they are looking for quickly.
    Hence the Mobile site you condense down to the main things they want so they can access that info quickly.

    Thats my explanation anyway if someone can clarify it further feel free.
