Since launching WPtouch Pro 3, the Simple theme has served businesses by providing a clean, action-driven mobile experience. It has also been successfully used by many service and retail businesses to build a mobile site for small business with minor customizations and changes.
Although we love the elegance of Simple, we wanted to be able to do more for those businesses out of the box. Recent Google mobile research suggests that a whopping 55% of mobile visitors are looking to find a nearby business they can visit within the hour, and even more will use their experience of your website on their smartphones to decide whether they will ever walk in your door — a huge reason to offer a mobile site for your business and tailor it to what they’re looking for.
Create a mobile site for small business? No problem.
With that in mind, we set out to build Open, a mobile theme inspired by you and designed to help convert mobile web visitors into walk-in (or order-by-phone) customers.
Open shows today’s hours right on its homepage, which you can add and customize easily in settings. With a single tap, mobile visitors can access your full hours— or get a map view of your business location. With Open, setup is easy to get connected with the local mobile customers already looking to find you.
Whether you want customers to make an appointment over the phone or book a table through a reservations provider, Open keeps your primary call to action accessible on every page and post of your mobile site.
Open is available today for all Small Business, Agency & Enterprise WPtouch Pro licensed customers, at no additional charge. Head over to the WPtouch Pro Themes & Extensions screen in your WordPress admin and click Install or upgrade today to use the new Open theme, only for WPtouch Pro.
