Virginia Beach, VA (PressExposure) January 09, 2009 -- Online branding. Search engine optimization. Organic leads. Web crawlers. We have all heard these terms. And we all know that today's businesses, technical or not, are expected to be online. So what does an accounting firm in a competitive marketplace do to set themselves apart from their competition? The answer: Develop a strong online brand. Let's face it: if your business fails to get attention on the Web, you are already losing potential customers. 3to5quotes.com helps US-based businesses stop the bleeding by connecting them with highly capable professional web designers and SEO specialists who not only know the lingo, but also know how to use the technologies required to maximize online exposure and stop handing would-be clients to their competition.
"Bakers open bakeries because they want to make cakes. Now they can keep kneading their bread while we connect them with vendors who specialize in the technical services that every business needs. This gives them the benefit of online branding without requiring them to write a single line of code. 3to5quotes.com brings the professionals to them and helps them maximize ROI, all while they watch their dough rise." said Kasie Snyder, CEO of Conceptual Resources, Inc., the company that developed the site.
3to5quotes.com simplifies the process of finding a qualified service-provider at a competitive price, making it easier for all businesses to implement best-practices to develop and maintain an online presence. This is how it works: Business owners (or authorized decision-makers) complete a 2-minute, minimally-invasive, online quote request form and get a confirmation email. Within 24 hours, an independent verification team contacts them by phone to verify the contact information submitted and make sure that the person who submitted the request is authorized to select and hire potential vendors. Once the request is validated, the information is passed to between 3 and 5 different vendors who specialize in the services requested. The vendors contact the business owner directly, usually by phone, within 24-48 hours, to discuss the project in depth so they can provide a quality, competitive quote. The business owner considers the proposals, comparing services and fees, to determine how they want to proceed.
This process keeps the business owner in the driver's seat as they finalize project details with the vendor of their choice.
There are many benefits for any business using this service. Suppose the company is not sure they can fund an SEO campaign. 3to5quotes.com gives the decision-maker all of the information they need to make a more knowledgeable decision about how the project can fit into the company's budget, or even customize a package that matches the current budget, and plan for a more extensive implementation later. Since there is no obligation to hire any of the vendors, the business owner could decide not to move forward with the project at all, although it is unlikely that they will not see the benefits of moving forward.
The technologies and processes associated with web development and site optimization are intricate and these are not tasks to be tackled by a novice. By bringing the professionals to the business owner, 3to5quotes.com also prevents businesses from wasting valuable time and resources on unqualified or non-performing amateurs.
3to5quotes.com is a powerful tool for every business who is looking to stay competitive, and even prosper, in spite of today's economic down-turn.
