Consumers are increasingly accessing the web from their smartphones and tablets, which is why having a website that’s optimized for mobile is more important now than ever. Strikingly is a web-application that people can use to create one-page websites for their businesses, side projects, or personal brands.
To create your mobile site, select the category it will fall under — choosing between Business/Project, Personal, or Portfolio — and choose the Strikingly template that best fits with the image you’re trying to promote. Strikingly provides editing tools that you can use to customize the template you’ve chosen without any coding or design skills. Just click on the specific page feature you’d like to change, type in your update, and click “Save.” You can delete certain elements (like photos or graphics) with one click of a button, upload images directly to your website from your desktop or social media accounts, and edit those images from right inside the Strikingly platform.
When you’re done editing your site, give it a title and select a Striking.ly URL. Strikingly gives premium users the option to register their own domains through its system. Users with upgraded accounts also get access to “mobile actions,” like click-to-call buttons, texting, directions, and emailing features, as well as advanced options like password protection, custom code editing, and a/b testing thanks to Strikingly’s integration with Optimizely.com.
