For small companies that have decided to establish their first online presence the options are almost endless. From custom designs to do-it-yourself solutions, it’s more affordable than ever to create a professional looking website. Finding an easy to use and affordable solution that’s geared towards the needs of small businesses is a daunting task.
The problem is twofold. First, all of the website builder platforms claim to be just right for a small business owner or entrepreneur who is just getting started. Then, picking the options that are truly needed, practical, and help drive sales revenue can be confusing.
Plus, there is always the fear that once you pick a web publishing solution, you’ll get sucked into either constantly adding paid features or searching for a compatible bolt-on “plug-in” application for a particular function you now need.
This is where Ocoos enters the scene. I met the CEO, Rahul Razdan, and quickly realized that he and his team are passionate about helping small businesses become more productive and succeed. They are a spinout from the University of Florida, which has one of the premier engineering and technology transfer programs in North America. The incredible solution they’ve built is the result.
If there is one word that sums up this company, it’s “easy”. To begin with, small businesses have a lot to juggle every day and the last thing they need to worry about is the technical aspects of creating and using a website.
As a cloud-based solution it works in the background, so business owners can focus on running their company. Websites are automatically kept at the cutting edge of technology eliminating the expense of website updates and overhauls. They even have a concierge service where they will build and manage everything for you!
A website should be an effective marketing and sales weapon and Occos doesn't miss a beat here. They are an all-in-one platform, yet that doesn’t mean there’s a reduction in features or usefulness. They’ve managed to integrate revenue-generating tools that fit nicely together and are easy to navigate and use.
The monthly subscription fee is very reasonable and includes secure e-commerce, customer management, support for mobile browsing, online scheduling, sales tracking, social media tools, search engine optimization, and analytics to name a few of the benefits. If you’re wondering how they stack up against other popular web-builder platforms, a handy comparison chart can be found here.
In terms of support, their dedication to small businesses shines here too.
I recommend Ocoos, however you’ll need to make sure they’re right for your business model and the stage of development your business is at. I believe that this is a great way to go for a small business or non-profit just getting started in the online world. This platform offers the ability to quickly and intuitively build a business class marketing solution that will help drive revenue.
It’s the most complete and cost-effective solution I’ve seen for small businesses. Please visit Ocoos and kick the tires with their 30-day free trial offer.
Just so you know – I’ve partnered with this company because of our mutual mission to help small businesses. We’ll work together to offer live seminars, webinars, articles, and new tools that will serve to educate small business on Internet marketing.
