Shop208 Beta to Release This Friday August 6, 2009

shop208For those that haven’t heard the buzz about Shop208, here is the simple low-down of why it is one of the smartest business sites to come around for a LONG time.

First, you should know that there is a limited amount of Beta users that will be able to be the first on board to give feedback & help with tweaks etc…all that good stuff that comes along with being a Beta user! Click HERE to sign up!

Why Should We Try Shop208?
Shop208 is a place for businesses to keep have an online presence with a plethora of marketing options on a platform that is built by a VERY smart, local, group.

If you don’t have a site, you need Shop208 to CREATE CONTENT! (Content is what makes you be found on the web & it lives FOREVER on the web.  The more content you provide, the better your ranking).

If you have a site, but it is a “brochure site”, you need Shop208.  Most likely, your site is just a presence where your clients can find out info that would normally be printed on a brochure.  If you have to call a “web master” to change your content, you need Shop208.

If you have a site, but have control of the backend (CMS: Content Management System) but want to get more out of your site (web analytics, form building, email marketing) all in one site for an AMAZINGLY Cheep price, you need Shop208.

What Does Shop208 Cost?
$0 – $60 a month. Amazingly cheep if you were to go with the  Premium Business package.  You could easily pay 3x this amount to get the features & quality that is expected by the end user (aka: your current & potential clients!).  You can’t afford not to do this.

What’s Your Role, Jen?
I met Nathan Barry just over a week ago & grilled him on why people should take advantage of Shop208. There have been at least 3 local developers try to make this sort of site (all of them not successful) in the past 3 years, but this is the first one that I have seen that I would support.
And since we all know content is what makes the web go around, I am here for Nathan and all Shop208 members to help them develop that web content in the form of blogs and a blog calendar of what they should write about.  This is an additional service, but one that people are finally catching onto that is extremely important, but not required.

Again, I have seen at least three similar type ideas formed the past few years, but not as well designed, thought out & released in such a smart forward thinking way. It starts out at FREE, so what do you have to loose?

    Jen – Great review. I hope you are one of the beta testers. I signed up yesterday and love it! Plus, it’s fun to see new features appear before your very eyes while the guys at Unattended Media make this platform sing! It’s going to make some headlines! Best, KK
