TXAD Internet Services, a division of Texas Advertising, has recently gone live with another website built exclusively for smart phones like the iPhone and Droid systems. Plantation Place in Dallas, Texas, is the latest TXAD client to add a “.mobi” website to their online marketing strategy, according to a news release.
Users visiting www.PlantationPlaceRV.com on any smart phone can view an optimized website for iPhones, Blackberries and any Droid-powered device. According to comScore.com, as of last year more than 82 million people in the U.S. use a smart phone.
TXAD said the difference between a standard website and a website optimized for smart phones (.mobi) is the layout and functionality as .mobi websites have fewer images and don’t take nearly as much time to download. People on their smart phone are most likely on the road and don’t have access to wireless Internet or a desktop to download the full website.
As Plantation Place owner Bill Lewis explains, “It makes all the difference in the world when you’re driving down the road and trying to find a place to stay – it’s so easy.”
The .mobi website is also preferred when businesses starting linking QR codes on their promotional products. By scanning a QR code on a smart phone, the quicker the information is displayed, the better. Currently, all AGS Guest Guide clients, also a division of Texas Advertising, have or will have a QR code on each guest guide/site map that is marketed.
TXAD Internet Services recently combined forces with AGS Internet Services to provide website design and hosting services. TXAD Internet Services, like AGS, is now a division of Texas Advertising, which serves 804 RV parks and campgrounds in the U.S. and Canada.
