TORONTO START-UP AIMS TO HELP THE SMALL BUSINESS OWNER WITH NEXT-GENERATION CMS FOR THE MOBILE-SOCIAL CUSTOMER

No more pinch zooming. New CMS offers HTML 5 / responsive design,drag-and-drop fully customizable templates
Toronto, ON – March 4, 2013/ PRNewswire/ - Mobile searches trigger actions very quickly, 55% of follow-up actions such as store visit or purchase happen within the hour. 1Toronto Start-up, Webist, is on a mission to help the small business owner with the mantra of “No Coding Experience Required, No Expensive Designer Required, No Expensive Developer Needed.” Armed with their next-gen CMS / Site Builder made to suit the searching and browsing habits of the Mobile and Social customer, each of the templates within the Webist CMS is pre-built to HTML 5 specs. What does this mean to the Small Business Owner? Three Words: Responsive Web Design.  
How many times have we pinch zoomed a website on our smartphone or tablet, only to find the fields or a certain button wasn’t working? Or worse yet, the site wasn’t loading on your iPad or iPhone due to Flash.  Webist is taking a mobile-social-customer centric approach first. Each template is pre-built with HTML 5 so when a customer searches for the spa’s or physiotherapist’s or lawyer’s office website – these small business can be rest assured that their Webist-built websites will be fully viewable on each and every mobile device, be it tablet or smartphone whatever the OS: iOS, Android, BlackBerry 10 0S or Windows; Webist’s goal is to make their CMS the new standard in how websites should be viewed and interacted with on a mobile device.
Responsive Web Design is the principle of designing sites to provide an “optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling2”—across a wide range of screens (desktop, tablet and smartphone). The Webist templates will detect which device the website is being viewed on and automatically re-format to be best viewed on that device. Pictures will automatically resize to fit the screen. Text will be a readable size. Widgets will move and re-align to fit a smartphone or tablet layout. Best of all, none of the site’s functionality will be lost.

Mobile Searches Trigger Two Follow-Up Actions
Small Business Owners cannot afford to lose out on the Mobile Customer.Webist’s HTML 5 ready templates means more mobile searches which translates to an increase in sales and referrals. Small Business Owners must realize the impact that the increasing dominance of tablets and smartphones are having on their business.  Webist’s templates are pre-built to be viewed on any device – for a business – this means cashing in on product searches while in store, on route or at the office just ahead of planning for that shopping trip in the evening.
