New Company Aims to "Recession-Proof" Small Business

New Internet start-up providing “a website that works” proving a winner for Small Business.

Greer, SC, January 08, 2009 --( New internet start-up Package Web Deals ( have set themselves the ambitious task of recession-proofing small businesses, one business at a time by offering both web design and effective online marketing to offline brick and mortar businesses.

With talk of recession and economic gloom rife, Chief Marketing Executive, Phil Jacobson, is optimistic about the future of the internet and the opportunities for savvy business owners who “take advantage of effective and affordable online marketing techniques that can dramatically improve their bottom line.” Following a flood of Internet Marketers bringing their services offline, Package Web Deals has taken a large scale and systemized approach to a growing business sector loosely termed as “online marketing for offline businesses” by recruiting sales reps in three states as well as internationally while putting in place necessary infrastructure to cater for demand.

Internet Marketers with knowledge and insight into the art of Search Engine Optimization (showing up in the search results for Google etc for the lay person) are much sought after. Recent demand and awareness of the need for marketing alongside design has forced many web design companies to outsource these vital skills to ensure their client’s site gets seen. As the CEO of Package Web Deals, Daniel McClintock puts it well: “What use is a great looking site if nobody sees it, and it doesn’t directly contribute to the business’s bottom line?”

With more than 80% of consumer purchase decisions now involving a query on search engines like Google, business owners are starting to wake up to the need for an effective web presence that goes further than just registering a domain and getting your teenage niece or nephew to build the site.

As people become more immune to printed advertising media, radio and television ads, the internet is quickly becoming a marketing haven not only for large corporations with seamless markets and burgeoning customer bases but also for the local business down the street. The ability to show up high in the search results for their product or service, with a good looking site that converts well, can make a world of difference and may be the difference between surviving or thriving in a bleak economy.
