Mobile site designed in under 10 minutes?

  • # July 1, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Hi there,

    We were on the phone with this guy who was designing a mobile website, for us, in under 10 minutes! We were wondering how he did it that fast. Does anybody know?

    @StepBertha Seems as if he used a poorly made template and slapped your content in it. The design of the menu doesn’t reflect your site at all.

    Branding fail…

    agreed…that is very generic. He could have at least changed the colors to match the other site.

    Yeah, I know. But I’m wondering about the technical aspects of it.

    It’s funny to know that they did this all within 10 minutes of being on the phone. I was wondering how they grabbed the content so fast. I can’t imagine them saving it all and pasting it in. Seems like an automation of some sort.

    @StephBertha I believe the only way he pulled that off is by having that pre-made template. Just grabbing your content and cropping it is quick and easy. I hope you turned that person down.

    We’re definitely not doing it. We were on the phone to see what he was offering because we build mobile sites as well (much better ones though)! Always great to see what other people are offering and I was curious to know how he built it this fast.

    Ah, good call.
