"With more people using the Internet, a website is often the first impression customers will have of a business, especially when they are not an established brand," said David Brown, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Web.com. "When you're competing for mindshare in the marketplace, just having a website isn't enough. Small businesses need websites that are properly designed, optimized, marketed and maintained.
