Interland Launches Unique Web Site Design Services For Small Businesses

New Service Provides Professional Assistance to Build an Online Presence Quickly and Cost-Effectively

 

6/5/2003

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 storefront.

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.
