London, United Kingdom, 2013/02/04 - BaseKit, one of the fastest growing European start-ups, founded in 2009, has added a mobile site editor to their cloud based website builder, enabling small businesses to effectively deploy their online presence across different devices - BaseKit.com.
With traffic from Mobile devices to main European data centres increasing by 8 fold in 2013, and more than 700 million smartphones sold in 2012, BaseKit responds to a strong market trend, enabling small businesses to build their online presence across different devices.
Juan Lobato, CEO of BaseKit says:
“Mobile sites need to load faster, be thumb friendly, easy to navigate on a smaller screen, and have mobile specific features such as ‘call-me’ buttons”
Basekit’s own research also reveals that just one in ten (9%) of SMEs say their websites can be used with smartphones and tablets in mind, missing out on vital sales and new customers.
This completes the website builder’s offering, which already includes self-made websites with more than 200 templates, a designer service for professional design, email, social integration, hosting, domains, etc.
Every month, more than 50,000 new small businesses are using BaseKit to build their website, and their cloud-based website building solution is now distributed by more than 100 partners globally, including some of the leading hosting companies across the world.
