Those with aching hearts this Valentine’s Day can rest assured that expert advice is now at the other end of a mobile phone.
Just in time for February 14th, the renowned www.soyouvebeendumped.com founder Thea Newcomb (employee at Paisley-based NSDesign), has re-designed her website to make it accessible for mobile phone internet browsers, enabling the heartbroken to seek professional advice, discuss relationship problems and watch self-help videos whilst on the move.
And Thea, originally from California, is the ideal person to launch the site in mobile form, especially as her day job involves managing relationships at Glasgow-based e-commerce company NSDesign – albeit in a client context, rather than a romantic one.
www.soyouvebeendumped.com was launched back in 2000 and has built up an avid following across the world. The site helps newly-found singletons to cope with the break up process, by providing advice, stories, video content and links to articles on the subject.
Thea said: “When I got the job Client Relationship Manager for NSDesign back in October, it felt like a perfect fit for me between relationships and technology – after 11 years of overseeing www.soyouvebeendumped.com, I consider it to be my destiny. Even if I tried, I don't think I'd be able to escape other people’s relationships!
“With mobile telephones now outnumbering PCs at a ratio of 4:1, I’m confident that websites will only succeed in the future if they are easy to access and navigate from mobile telephones – hence my decision to create a mobile version for www.soyouvebeendumped.com.
Gary Ennis, Managing Director of NSDesign said: “Accessing websites via a mobile phone when they have been designed for a desktop computer is often an absolute nightmare – they usually look terrible, involve lots of scrolling, and make it incredibly difficult to find the basic information that mobile users tend to be looking for.”
Thea continued: “If you’ve ever been dumped, you’ll know that the heartache consumes every waking moment – I want www.soyouvebeendumped.mobi website users to be able to get the advice they need at any time of day – whether they are on the bus, stuck in a traffic jam or even queuing at the supermarket.
