Ok, welcome to MOBLE's 'How to design a website, like a Pro' Series.

Slash production times and be more profitable

Finding the right CMS and website builder can be tricky. Some focus on tools for the developer and neglect the business that needs to manage the website once it goes live. Others are easy to use for business, but lock down the controls under the hood, inhibiting customisations that a developer can achieve, especially so for larger websites.

MOBLE is an Australian made website design builder and agency focused CMS, that is purposely engineered for both the designer; to smash traditional website design production times and be more profitable, and for the business, to effectively manage small or large volumes of content with ease, in a beautiful dynamic editor.

We originally created MOBLE for our own design agency to improve the speed and efficiency of the way we build websites. Now, after testing and iterating MOBLE with over 100 paying clients, we’re ready to release these tools to the world. With your MOBLE website, you really can make better use of your time and budget, right across the entire website design process. Whether removing repetitive tasks like drawing wireframes, or even having to code HTML, you'll have more time to enjoy being creative and doing the things you love.

In this Series, we are going to walk you through the MOBLE, in a collection of easy-to-follow, step-by-step articles and videos. You’ll be able to follow every step of the way, learning on the job and come away with your brand new beautiful custom website.


How do I get MOBLE?

To create your website, please visit www.moble.com. Complete the form on the homepage. Your website will instantly be created, and a secure login access emailed to you.


I’m not into DIY, can MOBLE design for me?

Yes absolutely! Please complete the form found at www.moble.com/lets-talk, though we suggest you give it a go yourself first.

We’re self-funded and always open to taking on new clients. Our philosophy? By working with our direct channel, we build better software. We understand the requirements of all customers intimately, taking take on work from content editors, designers, developers, marketers, salespeople and business owners. We’re available to help with the parts of the design that you can't do yourself, like building social networks, forums, bespoke web applications, payments systems and much, much more.

We don't compete with our community. We aim to share leads, tasks and team members between our community and partners so we can all get help where needed and focus on what we all do best.

Our initial focus is to help Sydney and Australian creatives get noticed more widely in new markets around the world. By helping get to this point, we’ll help you drive new business as we spread our wings and expand offshore.


Is the Pro Series for me?

The Pro Series is designed for creatives and business people at all levels, from beginner to advanced. You’ll be able to fly through sections or take your time to hone those skills.


Where do I get this free series?

You're already here! The series is delivered for free on the MOBLE website. You can jump ahead to Series 2 at any time, and throughout the MOBLE launch, we'll release Episodes for Series 1 each and every week. Look out for the latest articles via email, YouTube, Medium, Steemit and LinkedIn. We also share links back to MOBLE on Facebook and Twitter. Sometimes we may post the latest design layouts and client websites on Instagram.


What’s the purpose of the series?

Quite simply, to drive you to the finish line. To supply you with all the tools you need to get your websites live so you can continue editing and updating long into the future.


How many episodes are in it for me?

We really don't know how far this will go. Inspiration is as infinite as software development. I guess it never ends. We'll be guided by your interest and uptake.


I’m sold: What will you cover?

Series 1: Dynamics (10 episodes)
We share our story, philosophy, and methodology to help you understand approaching a website build. This saves you time, big time. We focus on our dynamic workshop process and lay out the foundations as a prerequisite for future Pro Series.

Series 2: Dynamics Styles (6 episodes, three more coming soon)
An easy to follow 'How to' video series made up of short videos you can follow to build your website styles.

Series 3: Dynamic Layouts (10 episodes)
A video guide to dynamic layouts. We feel once you understand dynamic layouts and realise there is no distinction between a wireframe, visual design, and code, you’ll never look back. You’ll be able to design in the canvas, toggle between Wireframe and Design modes, then view and share your work instantly on devices. We share our design tips and tricks as we transform you into a dynamic layouts pro.

Series 4: Dynamic Widgets (5 episodes, more in production)
You’ll learn how to control large volumes of content by building feeds that we call widgets. You’ll manage content for widgets such as news, galleries, portfolios, or whatever your dynamic content requires. 

You’ll be able to configure the look of your widgets, filter the content in granular ways and bring extraordinary power to your website in moments, in mass, without even needing to edit a page.

Series 5: Housekeeping (10 episodes)
From resizing images to keyboard shortcuts to going live with your website, this series covers handy MOBLE hints and tips.

Series 6: To be confirmed, based on demand
We’d like your feedback as to what is next! We’re considering CSS and frontend development, integrations with other software, user management or growth. There’s a  great deal of content to come and we'll be guided by what you require most.
 


Do I have to follow the series from start to finish?

No, the series is made to respect your time – you can skip ahead to any series or episode in any order. The aim is to give you help on demand as and when you need it.
 


Why is MOBLE inviting Sydney creatives?

We’re located in Sydney and we like to support local talent. Our initial workshops are being run from our office in Pyrmont. User groups and feedback is important to us, so it makes sense to meet and understand our local community. 

We'd love as much direct feedback as we can, so we can make the product as good as it can be for everybody around the world.
