GREENSBORO NC. Beacon announces the launch of its all-inclusive, budget-friendly SITEXPRESS product for small to medium-sized businesses. Packed with Beacon’s 20 years of web technology experience, smaller businesses can now get a high-end, customized website, with all the bells and whistles, to compete more effectively in generating leads and sales online.
“About 3 years ago, we started talking internally about how we could help smaller companies have great websites at a lower cost so they could level the playing field somewhat,” says Keana Lynch, Beacon’s Director of UX Design & Development. “SITEXPRESS contains the best-of-the-best from our designers, developers, digital marketing specialists and technology experts.”
With SITEXPRESS, customers get a dependable website on a platform that has been tested across 10 different device-browser combinations, especially mobile, but is also easy-to-use, SEO-friendly, meets accessibility requirements (for disabled users), and designed to engage visitors. But that’s not all. Customers are trained to update their own website and the price includes web hosting, ongoing maintenance/support and Google Analytics setup/reporting. Wait, there’s more. Beacon’s digital marketing specialists also created 3 unique upgrade packages, specifically for small business, to facilitate short-term, gradual, or accelerated growth in traffic to your website. SITEXPRESS is a much more comprehensive, dependable alternative to WordPress.
“We’ve learned that smaller businesses need a turn-key website solution,” says Mark Dirks, Beacon’s CEO. “With the complexities and changing design trends for websites, many small businesses don’t know what they need, nor have the time it takes to fully leverage the web to grow their business. Nowadays, your website is the centerpiece for your marketing strategy and typically, the first point of contact for new business. So we combined all the critical elements into the SITEXPRESS framework and services to make it easier and cost-effective for smaller businesses to stand out among their competitors.”
After the initial setup fee, customers pay a fixed monthly fee of $395 for 2 years, but may cancel at any time without penalty. “We are confident that customers will like the results and value the support of our team, which is why the contract is not binding,” says Dirks. “So they get a high-performing website, preserve cash by paying monthly and get a proven partner for support whenever you need us. Not a bad deal.”
