QR Codes are simply a graphic pattern that contain a URL to a webpage within it. The URL is accessed by using a QR Code Reader. These readers use the Smartphone's camera to 'scan' the code much like the a grocery store clerk scans a UPC code for their products. When 'scanned', a browser will open and take users directly to the URL embedded in he code.
Depending on your eMobileMenus service plan, you will have a number of, or unlimited QR Codes. These codes can be placed on any visual media, from flyers, billboards, and bus benches, to newspaper ads, pizza boxes, and magnets. Instead of having to type in a web site address, the user just scans the code and goes right to your site. This is KEY to converting a potential customer into an engaged menu browser and customer.
Web sites are generally built to be viewed on a regular computer monitor. Viewing these sites on a smartphone is possible, however it is much harder to read content and especially navigate the website.
A Mobile version of your site consists of templates specifically designed to be viewed on smartphones. The content is clear and easy to view, and the navigation is straight forward and easy to follow.
Absolutely! Mobile sites are streamlined so a user on the go can quickly find the content they need. Your regular website may be image heavy and look great, but for a mobile viewer this makes it more difficult to use. A mobile version is like a branded navigation menu providing direct access to content.
Our designers will integrate your logo and brand color scheme to create a mobile template that reflects your corporate identity. If your regular website has specific colors you want us to focus on we'll apply those if requested or different from your brand identity.
If you can use a typical web site like filling out a form, or use a word processing program on your computer, then you can update your mobile website. The administrative panel, walks you through what has to be done to edit your pages with simple to follow instructions.
If you get stuck, we offer unlimited email support.
Marketing Your Mobile Site(5)
Letting the world know you provide a mobile version of your menu/website.
We've thought of that and provide a number of tools to help you spread the word. 1) Customized Counter/Hostess-Stand Sign with QR Code, 2) Customized Bill Holder Insert, 3) Listing in our eMobileMenus restaurant directory.
Include this code in all of your printed materials. Mailing inserts, take-out menus, coupons, advertisements, bus benches, delivery vehicle signs, pizza boxes, you name it. If a person can hold their smartphone's camera up to it and take a picture, they can access your site without having to know your web address/domain name.
This is an 8.5"x11" page that has a picture of your eMobileWebsite home page within a smartphone above your web address. In the top right corner is your QR Code and a call to action for the person standing at the sign to scan the code.
All you have to do is login to your eMobileMenus.com profile and select the UPGRADE Button. Your account will automatically change and the new features will be processed by the development team. Within 24 hours they will appear on your eMobileMenus site.

Why you need it!(4)
We've got lots of reasons, but we'll keep it to the most important.
Plain and simple.. People are not in front of their computers all day.
In fact people have so deeply integrated smartphones into every aspect of their lives that it only makes sense to make your menu easily accessible.
People are less likely to get up off the couch to sit at a computer to find your menu, let alone head to the kitchen drawer with the mess of outdated menus they've collected.
They simply grab their phone and get online. Whether in front of the TV, on a bus, in a car, in a train, or in the rain. If your menu is not available to all the people on the go, then you've MISSED the opportunity to get their order!
Picture it, a couple is talking to each other while both are driving home from work. The topic of dinner comes up and they need to make a decision. They know they want to order from your place, but only have a few moments while stopped at a red light to review your web site and menu. The instantaneous nature of accessing information on a mobile menu makes it safe and easy for the couple to figure out their order. Then with the single push of a button, one of them calls and places their order. All while stopped in traffic. This could never happen without a mobile menu.
We can't count how many times people have told us that their mobile menu allowed them to share their favorite restaurants menus with friends and strangers alike - instantaneously while talking about their food while out at other restaurants, parties or just during random encounters.
Just think how much is spent on printed take out menus. Every time you adjust prices or menu items, you need to reprint. With your mobile menu within seconds you've updated your site at ZERO additional cost.
