What should I include in my description? On the mobile web people want answers to their questions in a quick and easy manner. That’s why we have click to call, maps, translations and links all built into your page. Think of what your customers want to know about your business. What do you do, when are you open, how much does it cost and why should they go with you. Keep the description simple and do not use abbreviations or acronyms as they don’t translate well. Remember you can change your description as often as you like. ^top of page

What is click to call? It allows customers to call your business with a push of a button. It’s perfect for when people are on the move and allows them to ring you directly. ^top of page

What is click to maps? It pinpoints your location on the phone’s map allowing your customers to use the phone's inbuilt GPS to navigate to your door. ^top of page

What are the translation flags for? Customers can click on a flag to get the translation of your business description into their language. We have chosen Chinese, German, French, Japanese and Korean as the most regular visitors to Australia with poor English skills. These translations are also refreshed if you update your business description. ^top of page

How do the facebook, twitter and tripadvisor buttons work? When you create your page you can opt in to link to these social networking sites. Pushing the buttons will open a new page with your business’ facebook, twitter or tripadvisor pages. We recommend using these tools as customers like being able to find out about other people’s experience of your business. Your business can also learn from visitors' constructive comments. ^top of page

How does the automatic device detection work? Our software recognizes whether people are on a computer or a smartphone and automatically redirects them to the best site. We will also provide you with the code to put on your full website so that it also has automatic device detection. Your web designer inserts this code on your homepage and it all happens automatically. ^top of page
