Customer Needs - Free & Affordable Mobile Website Apps

Every business and very many individuals, benefits by having a website. Most need it to be mobile friendly, responsive and affordable. Some go further and have 1 or more NATIVE (not PWA) Mobile Apps designed and built for for either Android, Apple or Microsoft Mobile operating Systems. The cost of designing such a "Native App" is time consuming, expensive and often prohibative.

However, a2zPlaces.Com has acted to leverage a new technology from Google and Partners. Progressive Website Apps are Website Apps designed to work on website browsers, rather than on a particular operating system

a2zPlaces.Com bespoke Website App Builder is purpose built to create these exceptional benifits

    Marketing and Social Networking - Viral Advertising

    A lot of programming development has been spent ensuring that every town guide page and website listing page can be shared on any social network, alongside the master image on that page.

    Town Guide pages - any visitor can share their favourite Town and Category page link with the master image from the top of the page. Post - Hi Fred, have you thought of finding a job here??

    Website Listing pages - The Owner or any Visitor can share and comment on a page and the main image on that page, attracting visitors back to the listing. Every Listing has breadcrumb links to the a2zPlaces.Com Town, Area, Region and Country Guide, and the same category page as the listing category.

    It is in the interest of every website listing owner to share their new listing with their social network and ask friends to comment on it. Post - Hi Fred, have what do you think of my new website/business/advert/news story??
