Restaurant. The restaurant mobile template creates an easy way for your patrons to find information about your restaurant. This template comes with multiple pages so you can include special offers, your menu and directions. The Google Maps gadget lets you edit and customize your restaurant’s location. The click-to-call button makes it easy for patrons to call you with a single click.
Local Business. The local business mobile template uses an interactive Google Map and a click-to-call button to make it easy for your mobile customers to find and contact you.
Lead Generation. The lead generation mobile template lets you generate leads through a Google form and store them on a Google spreadsheet so you can follow up on qualified leads. You can also embed this form on your desktop site for people that aren’t visiting your mobile site.
Social. The social mobile template lets your customers socially engage with your business. Add the social button to link your mobile site to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.
eCommerce. When you load the ecommerce template, you’ll see a placeholder Google Checkout button. To set up Google Checkout on your mobile site, delete this button and insert a Google Checkout Buy Now button. You can also insert the click-to-call gadget to allow patrons to call you directly about order inquiries, purchasing, or any other questions. To use this template, you must have a Google Checkout Merchant account.
Custom. The custom mobile template lets you design your own mobile site or landing page. To take advantage of mobile-only functionality and add style to your site, add one or more of the mobile buttons.
