Internet Underutilized by SMBs; Aplus.net Offers Solution

July 8, 2009 by · Comments Off on Internet Underutilized by SMBs; Aplus.net Offers Solution 

AplusWeb Hosting ToolsOVERLAND PARK, KS. – In an effort to provide a high-value business solution, Aplus.net is introducing a new web design product to accompany its shared hosting services. This product allows innovative business owners to reach the masses through the Internet via a personalized and professional website.

Reducing costs and application integration are currently the top priorities for small-to-medium-size business owners online, according to Emergent Research. However, only 41 percent of small-business owners operated an online storefront in Sept. 2008, according to a study by Warrilow & Co., which means a majority are unable to reach the 1.6 billion Internet users. The Internet provides many benefits for SMBs that include global market penetration, brand enhancement, 24/7/365 support and availability and simplified data collection, just to name a few.

Web Design from Aplus.net allows SMBs to take advantage of these many opportunities. In addition, SMBs own their designed website—unlike many other website design houses— and may select from 4,000 design templates for full personalization. SMBs will reduce costs by retaining ownership of their website and can seamlessly launch and manage the site through one of Aplus.net’s shared hosting plans. Each design package includes 5 web pages, a free website consultation and a 12-day delivery guarantee so the website can launch on-time. Packages start at $50/month for 12 months or $500/year for HTML-based websites, while new Flash-based websites start at $80/month for 12 months or $850/year.
