More Jimdo Languages: Welcome Turkish!

Pages to the People - şimdi daha da fazla dilde mevcut! Jimdo onikinci dil sürümünü sunmaya başladı - Artık sitenizi dilediğiniz şekilde Türkçe olarak oluşturabilir ya da düzenleyebilirsiniz!

If you can read the sentence above, then you already know the good news: Jimdo's newest language version has arrived: Turkish! This is the 12th language that you can use the Jimdo website builder in.


We've already found at least one website created using Jimdo in every country in the world. With the new language version, we hope to see even more JimdoPages from Turkish-speaking parts of the world.


So here's to Jimdo's new language! If you have friends who you know would like to use a Turkish-language system to make their websites, please let them know. If you know of a Jimdo site in Turkish that we should highlight in our favorite pages or in a Jimdo Spotlight, this is the time to let us know. Send us a message and tell us about the site. We're really looking forward to seeing lots of Turkish websites!

New Feature: Mobile Express Page


It's clear, your potential customers are visiting your website on their mobile devices more and more. Fortunately, it's now possible to display a Mobile Express Page for these visitors to show them all the most important details about your business up front. (Pictured above.)


Express your site.

These days, we're always on the go. We rely on our mobile devices to keep us on track, using them to find basic information about all the businesses we visit on a daily basis. Our smartphones know it all: The new address of our favorite Thai restaurant, how late our dry cleaner stays open, the phone number for our kids' daycare center, and a billion other little pieces of information that we could never keep track of before.


If you run a small business, it's important to consider what your website looks like, and what kind of information is easily accessible when people view it on mobile devices. For a while now, Jimdo has handled the first part of that with the Mobile View option. Now, with the addition of the Mobile Express Page, Jimdo has it all covered.


Express yourself.

Customers don't have much time to find the information about your business that they're looking for, so it's important for your website to organize that information in an easy-to-find, easy-to-read format. The Mobile Express Page helps your website do just that. Your regular website is still there in mobile view if a visitor wants to dig deeper, too.


Activate the Mobile Express Page in Settings > Mobile > Mobile Express Page, and then fill out all of the relevant fields: Description, Phone Number, Email Address, Opening Hours, and Address. All fields are optional, so only fill out the ones you want to display on the page. 


With the new Mobile Express Page, your mobile website gets straight to the point, and helps customers get straight to your business. Let us know how you'll use the Mobile Express Page in the comments below.
