With UppSite you can create an application of your website for your smart phone. Best of all its free. This works if you are using a WordPress of Vbulletin website. This will include ads (of which you get no revenue). If you want to split the ad revenue, then you can purchase the plan that is $9.99 a month. You can also customize your design a bit more (although I was impressed with the free design features). For $9.99 a month, its worth looking into.
You can end up with an app in a store relatively quickly. According to their FAQ page:
After your app creation process is done, your app will be reviewed by our team to make sure it's compatible with the different stores and that it works properly. This check usually occurs up to 24 hours from your app's completion, but may take longer on weekends and holidays. Once an application is approved by UppSite, it gets sent to your chosen stores and is subjected to the store's policy as follows:
• Android: Immediately.
• Apple Store: 2-14 Working days.
Your application will be available on all UppSite supported stores, Apple App Store, Android Market and UppSites Portal app. Check it out at www.weeklywebtools.com/uppsite
Put a News Ticker On your Website
It seems everyone has something grabbing their visitor's attention be it Pop Up Domination, or WP Subscribers, etc. The problem is they are all starting to look the same and it's (for me) losing its influence. That's why I really liked the News Ticker Plugin as it caught my attention because it was different. There is a free version, but the premium is only $19.99 (as of now) and it has 10 different color schemes available plus the ability to put links in your ticker, pick categories and more. If you're looking to not just grab the attention of your visitor, but politely smack them over the head, you might check out the Latest News Ticker plugin.
