Description of Service
This Is Mobile and This Is Media mobile optimisation is a service that allows all companies to create and maintain a mobile website.
To have a mobile website created with This Is Media, you will be required to take out an agreement and select a pricing plan. Once your account is created, we will enter information about your website such as layout content, name, logo, location(s), phone number(s), menu, calendar, colours, reviews, photos and any other necessary mobile information.
Once we have in-putted the appropriate information and built the layout and mobile scheme we will then generates a mobile website for you that displays cleanly and professionally on all mobile devices. The web address for your mobile website will be your current web address followed by .mobi unless you tell us otherwise or would prefer a sub-domain like a preceding "m." in front of your existing website domain name. If we register the domain for you we will retain no rights to it and will transfer the domain to your preferred hosting company at any stage without a fee.
The layout of your mobile website change be changed but unless stated will be based on your existing website and will be organized in tabs that can be easily selected to display content. This Is Media mobile optimisation can also generate other features such as maps, videos, pictures and one-touch dialling for your company.
Once we have created your mobile site, This Is Media will give you a short piece of code that you must insert into the header of each page of your main website that you want mobile users to be redirected from. This integrates the two sites (mobile and normal), so that a user who accesses your normal website from a mobile device is automatically directed to your mobile site.
During your live mobile website period you can call us at any time to make changes to your mobile website which will be displayed within 24 hours if not immediately. You can also add extra features at any time.

Billing will occur each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of service and set-up payment date, unless you specify otherwise.

All fees and charges are non-refundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods.
Your This Is Media Mobile Website Optimisation will continue in effect unless and until you cancel your agreement or we terminate it. You must cancel your agreement before it renews each quarter in order to avoid billing for the next 3 month's fees.

How does our service work?
This Is Media uses unique software and plug-ins to automatically convert your existing website to a one click functionality, user friendly and fast mobile site. It is easier to read on a small screen, avoids zooming and loads faster when you are on a mobile data connection.
Although we do not use a separately designed and hosted stand alone optimised website we do register a domain for you to use for marketing purposes. Our software builds your website on the fly based on whatever mobile platform is trying to access your main website. This means we can make sure your contents looks good on any device, unlike a lot of design companies who just make your mobile site mobile friendly using CSS or style sheets to restructure your site for smaller screens, which makes your site perform incorrectly on many mobile devices.
This Is Media offer a fourth option to what exists in the mobile optimised market at the moment. The options available before This Is Media to optimise your main website were:
1. Pay for a designer to spend days designing a new separate mobile optimised website from scratch that needs updating separately to your main website, needs hosting and can be very costly. Search engines do not like this method as they see both sites as duplicate content, which can mark you down in the organic search rankings.
2. Use a cheap template were you can add a picture and some text which becomes a basic optimised site but not optimised for all devices. This method is also not much use for mobile users who are looking for a lot more information about your business or services offered.
3. Use your existing websites CSS or style sheets to reorganise your existing websites content on to a smaller screen. Again this does not work for all devices and does not make viewing your website on a mobile as easy and convenient as it should be.
