It’s thought that around 40% of small businesses have no web presence. In a time where the Internet dominates consumer choices, these businesses are missing out huge audiences.
Running initiatives such as cost price domain names, offering a DIY website solution, attending shows such as The Business Start Up Show in London and various local events, Siteopia hopes to educate and encourage businesses to get started online.
Kevin Savage, Managing Director of Siteopia said ‘We take our presence on the internet as second nature, it gives us access to global customers. However, we also understand that to new or emerging businesses it can be daunting, a minefield of acronyms’ and technical terms. Our aim is to help make the Internet as accessible as possible to all businesses.’
In helping new businesses take the first steps into getting their web presence started http://www.siteopia.com is helping to encourage the UK economy. If businesses flourish online there is opportunity for new and emerging brands, jobs and consumer spending.
Business Minister Edwina Hart said "diverse and thriving" small to medium-sized businesses have the potential to be a "driving force for economic recovery".
