CandyWarehouse.com, the premier source of fresh candy on the Internet, is proud to announce a new website for mobile browsers! Mobile devices are now forwarded automatically to a website designed especially for them: m.CandyWarehouse.com. The site was crafted to be more easily browsed on the specific screen sizes of many smart-phones, leading to an immersive user experience. Go to www.CandyWarehouse.com now on your phone to view for yourself!
"The mobile site ushers in an era of unprecedented connection between our site and our customers," said Dr. Evans Boney, Marketing Analyst for CandyWarehouse. "It gives our customers the power of the full site in the palm of their hands." The mobile website was launched with the help of Branding Brand, a company which has provided mobile optimized websites
to more Top 500 internet retailers than any other.
"We are proud to work with retailers who constantly strive to improve customer experience," said Chris Mason, Branding Brand co-founder and CEO. "As mobile traffic continues to skyrocket, so will consumer demand for usable, relevant shopping experiences."
As seen in the screenshot, the new site leads to a smooth user experience on mobile devices, including full buffet-builder capability (click here if reading on mobile). Users can easily find candy by color, type, flavor, brand and occasion, or hop over to our social media profiles on Pinterest , Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ to keep up with the Candy Conversation.
All of the payment options available on desktop are still available; checkout with Credit Card, Paypal, or Check, or pay in-store at our El Segundo Warehouse with cash. And, as always, we ship everything as quickly as possible! Don’t have a fancy phone but still want candy? Don’t worry, we have a phone number, too: 310-343-4099.
So the next time you want to make your party or special event a little sweeter, just know: if you’ve got a smart-phone, we can make it happen fast!
Have a tablet and think CandyWarehouse.com should also have a site specific for you? Well, you’re in luck! The next thing in development at CandyWarehouse.com is a tablet specific site, which is currently undergoing its final phase of testing.
"Most companies use their mobile site for lesser functionality, maybe focusing on a store-finder element, but our platform aims to connect customers with the full-site experience." Boney continued, "We don’t want people on their phones to be able to just browse limited product pages, we want them to be able to do whatever they could do on the desktop site. Social Media integration with Facebook will allow cross-platform log-in by fall 2014."
As Dr. Boney summarized, "No matter what device you use to come to CandyWarehouse.com, we are working all day, every day, to make the shopping experience as convenient as possible."
