Mobile web pages are a great way to deliver a lot of content, with a simple link. They are helpful for known office closures, upcoming in office events, patient appreciation days, and more!
When we create mobile web pages, the intent is to deliver relevant content to the contact. Make it easy for them to find the location, register for the event or even ask questions about the event. But it doesn't stop there. You can deliver "what to expect" content or testimonial videos to new patients. We'll show you how to create and add those to promote effective content delivery to patients.
To access the mobile web page builder:
Log in to www.zingitsolutions.com
Click “Mobile Websites” under mobile tools in the left menu bar
You can either create a new mobile web page by clicking the button to create or you can copy an old one and edit it. It may be easier to duplicate an event with some of the content and logos for the next mobile web page.
For new pages, you'll have to choose a mobile URL code (name). This should be short but unique as it will be at the end of your URL code when sending out to the customers. ie: http://mpage.info/zing. We advise keeping that URL name short since it will be a part of a 160 character limit text.
After you create the mobile web page, you can close that message. To edit the new web page, click on the edit icon (paper and pencil) to open the form. You can add a new text box, write content or add an image that you've sized.
Note: Keep in mind, when you make an edit to an Image Row or Text Row, you'll need to Save Updates before moving to the next row.
Videos are one of the greatest ways to communicate and deliver a powerful message. You can add a welcome video for a new patient mobile web page. You can sing a Happy Birthday greeting and add it to your digital birthday card. You can even give a monthly motivational pep talk via text through video in your mobile web page. The personalized message helps connect you to the patient since they can see you and hear your voice. This is valuable when building that relationship.
Look for a good frame on your YouTube video that you can use as the picture in your mobile web pages. Once you pause the video on that perfect frame, Snip the picture, resize it and upload it into the mobile web page. Now you'll have a picture of the video and you need to link it to that YouTube or Vimeo page. This is the easy stuff! Copy your web link and paste it in the field for your Image - Link to [include http:]. You'll copy the URL right from the browser window so it will show as https://www.youtube.com/yourmoviehere. If it's too long, you'll need to use the URL shortener that's on the left hand menu bar. Shrink it down so the link fits!
This video will show you how you can deliver more content through text by creating a mobile webpage.
Resizing Images For Mobile Web Pages
Loading images for mobile web pages can be a bit tricky, since size is important to view it on your cell phone. You don't want everyone to have to scroll left or right to see the entire image. A majority of the time, the size will adjust automatically, but sometimes it makes more sense for you to crop or resize your image to fit.
Just keep in mind, whatever editing software you use, you'll want the width to be 280 pixels wide or less.
