In October 2009, the home-based web development company in Fredericksburg, VA, Greater Works Business Service, has announced the kickoff of its Business Start-up Web Design Campaign. This program will allow individuals, businesses, and organizations to market their skills, products, services, and causes via a website hundreds of dollars less then traditional web design companies. Greater Works see itself as a small business helping small businesses connect to the world of the internet. This world contains people that are in need of products and services from various businesses. A world that contains information to educate us, to keep us inform, and to make business and personal information.
Why Greater Works Business Services wants to connect people to the world? "It's a chance for people to connect with like-minded people who share the same interest" said founder and owner, Keith O. Williams. " When people are looking for information or selling a product or services, they are able to connect with people who are looking for those elements thus creating a world where information, products, and services could interlock into one giant 'planet' of movement at the speed of light". By understanding more about the internet, Greater Works Business Services hope to integrate people and their businesses to the vast arena of one unified world.
Why have an internet presence? According to CyberAtlas.com, more than 1 billion people surf the internet daily and became the fast growing medium in the world. It took only five years to reach 50 million users. Additionally, the Internet is roughly 35% English, 65% Non-English with the Chinese at 14%. Yet only 13% of world's population, 812 million are Internet users as of Dec. '04. North America has the highest continental concentration with 70% of the people using the Internet. Think about the countless of people that are in need of a product or service that can purchase it instantly with a click of a mouse. If these businesses have a website, they will be able to tap into a new world where millions of people "live" to obtain information and to purchase products and services use daily. That is why Keith O. Williams, owner of Greater Works, became the advocate for small businesses to connect to the world of the internet. It's less expensive to advertise on the internet then radio, television, and print combined. How so? For example, according to Digital Inspiration, an award-winning technology site with 5,000+ articles, how-to guides and video tutorials on all things related to personal technology, software and useful web apps, radio advertising as dropped 11.7%, television has dropped 10.1%, newspaper advertising fell 18.7%, and magazine advertising fell 14.8%. This rapid decline in mainstream media advertising is due to the rise of internet advertising. Greater Works is dedicated to give businesses a change to tap into the millions of people that use the greatest source of advertising known: the internet.
Greater Works Business Services is helping small businesses to connect to the world of the internet where they are able to reach more people and sell products and services at a cheaper rate then radio, television, and print combined.
