New Service Provides Professional Assistance to Build an Online Presence Quickly and Cost-Effectively
Atlanta, GA — (Business Wire) — Interland
(Nasdaq: INLD), the leading provider of Web hosting and online services
for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced the
availability of Interland Design Services(TM), a cost-effective and
time-saving solution for business owners who want to kick start their
online presence with a professionally designed Web site or online
Interland Design Services offers an experienced team of Web
professionals who provide everything from initial consultation to
design, implementation, and ongoing support – all at a price small
businesses can afford.
Interland Design Services is available exclusively as an option with
Interland’s newly announced Business Solutions(TM) offering, which
provides SMBs with an alternative to building a Web site on their own,
as well as easy and cost-effective options for managing and promoting
the site once it is built. In addition to building custom Web sites and
storefronts, the Interland Design Services team provides counsel on
defining the content, services and features that should be included to
best represent each unique small business. Through a comprehensive
interview with the customer and examination of current marketing
collateral, Interland’s Design Services team eliminates the guesswork
and learning curve normally associated with outlining, creating,
implementing, and maintaining an effective Web presence.
“It has never been easier or more affordable for small business
owners to get their businesses online,” said Joel J. Kocher, chairman
and chief executive officer of Interland. “Interland understands that
time and money are vital assets to a small business owner. With
Interland Design Services, business owners can now focus on what they do
best, and rely on our expertise to provide a quality online presence.
Interland is not only providing the most comprehensive and easy-to-use
solution for online success, we are offering it at a price that is
substantially lower than any comparable package in the marketplace.”
In recent national focus groups and surveys of small businesses with
fewer than 20 employees conducted by Interland, 80 percent of
respondents preferred a trusted solutions provider like Interland to
build their Web site for them. In addition, according to industry
analyst firm Yankee Group, the average cost for small businesses (those
with 2-19 employees) to set up and develop a Web site is $1,477. Ideal
for small businesses that cannot afford such a high level of initial
investment, Interland Design Services start at only $479. By leveraging
proprietary tools and proven processes to drive consistent quality with
rapid build times, Interland can deliver professionally designed Web
sites and storefronts at highly competitive prices.
“For small business owners, time is a precious commodity. Now, they
can choose to have a leading provider of Web hosting and online services
build a professional Web site that they can update themselves, or they
can rely on Interland’s design team to update it for them,” said small
business expert Kim T. Gordon, president of National Marketing
Federation Inc. “Business owners can also act with confidence, because
they’re assured of quality design even at this unparalleled price point.
The introduction of Interland Design Services is an example of
Interland’s commitment to helping small businesses succeed online.”
Interland Design Services is available in a basic or e-commerce
package, and on an hourly basis. The basic package includes an
easy-to-grow five-page, professional Web site, complete with three
interactive features (Web gems) such as mapping capability, directions
and weather reports, plus the dedicated support of the Interland Design
Services team to ensure an effective online presence. In addition to all
the features included in the basic package, Interland’s Design Services
e-commerce package provides instant ability to conduct transactions on
the Web. The e-commerce package is available with Interland’s Business
Solutions Online Marketing Suite, which includes robust e-commerce
functionality through E-store Builder(TM), an Interland-built technology
that enables businesses to easily conduct transactions on the Internet.
As part of the service, Interland will design, build out and integrate a
storefront as part of the core Web presence.
