Main Street Hub Takes Local Businesses Mobile

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2013) - Main Street Hub, the "do-it-for-you" marketing platform for local businesses, is introducing HubSites -- branded social landing pages that are designed specifically to drive customers to local businesses at the moment they are deciding which business to choose.

"Today's local consumers are hopping on their smart phones for information about local businesses at an increasing rate, yet local businesses are not keeping up with this shift," said Andrew Allison, co-CEO at Main Street Hub. "Local business websites are hard to use on mobile phones and, as a result, they have the effect of pushing customers away. HubSites, on the other hand, are designed to convert mobile phone users into customers, using social media and mobile design to take advantage of opportunities to gain new customers the very moment they are making a purchasing decision."

Beautiful, mobile-friendly and continually updated, HubSites provide a landing page that can be used as either a link to a company's existing Web page or its primary website. Features include: a front and center click-to-call button; the ability to capture reputation-enhancing testimonials directly on the page; Google Maps integration; positive reviews from Yelp; a real-time Twitter feed; and prominent calls to action to connect with the business via social media and email.

According to BIA/Kelsey, mobile device searches will surpass desktops in 2015. However, the vast majority of small businesses lack a website designed specifically for mobile devices. Main Street Hub's HubSites provide local businesses with the opportunity to stand out above the crowd, and their competition, with a streamlined, easy-to-use mobile landing page.

For customer-focused, B2C businesses, Main Street Hub offers a full-service approach to social media management. Main Street Hub helps local businesses attract more customers and deliver great customer service by managing their reputation and online presence on Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Google+, Foursquare and TripAdvisor. The company works as an extension of a local business, delivering innovative products enabled by proprietary technology and a dedicated team of social media experts.
