SBOMAG.com and 1&1 Internet Celebrate Banner
Anniversaries With Website Makeover Offer
Small Business Opportunities magazine, celebrating 25 years of publishing moneymaking ideas for entrepreneurs, and leading web hosting company 1&1 Internet, proud to announce their 10th anniversary in the U.S, is offering a free website makeover!
In today’s business world, a professional website can be the deciding factor when consumers are choosing between companies. The online experience often reflects directly upon the business owner thus affecting your profit margin. Broken links, slow loading times or poor design aspects all contribute to consumers clicking away and onto the site of a competitor. No matter the industry, a successful website is the key to 21st century business success.
According to research by 1&1 Internet, searching for new small businesses via the Web trumps traditional methods like local advertising. Search engine searches was the most popular method among those surveyed (66%) while viewing a direct website was a close second at 62%. This proves that the first impression your business makes on a majority of consumers is online.
Creating a professional website is only half the battle. It is important to make frequent evaluations of how it is performing. When reviewing your website ask yourself: Does my website have an eye-catching design? Are my professional social media accounts linked directly to my website? Are all elements of my website truly up to date? If you answered no to any of these questions, there is a strong chance that your website could be in the need of a makeover.
Small Business Opportunities and award-winning Web host, 1&1 Internet are coming together to help you create the best online presence possible.
As an international Web host, 1&1 specializes in equipping small and medium sized businesses with the tools necessary to succeed online. From domains and email to website design tools and servers, 1&1 is the ideal partner to support your business growth.
