NowNet to help SMBs access the best of the web

18 Jan 12

Final preparations are underway for the launch of a new business that aims not just to get SMBs online, but to help them get the most out of what the web has to offer.

Due to launch in the next few weeks, NowNet will differentiate itself from other web design outfits targeting small businesses by offering a consultative approach that will help clients maximise their web presence specific to their own market.

That means creating a strategy for utilising current tools like localised searches, social networks, and mobile device platforms, rather than just setting up a website.

NowNet director, Don Henderson, says every business has four core functions – finding, winning, keeping and growing high-value customers.

Everything businesses do, especially in the overwhelmingly vast online world, needs to point to one of these functions.

Payment will be at fixed prices rather than on hourly rates, so business owners can budget for the true costs.
