Web.com to Sponsor 60+ Free Internet Marketing Seminars for Small Business Owners in 2015

January 7, 2015

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Web.com (Nasdaq:WWWW), a leading provider of Internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, will again host a series of free Small Business Summit programs across the U.S. and internationally. The Small Business Summit series are designed to educate small business owners on how to increase online visibility and online marketing, helping them successfully grow their business.

Web.com will offer more than 60 Small Business Summit educational seminars across the United States in 2015 in conjunction with its umbrella sponsorship of the Web.com Tour. The Small Business Summits will be held at PGA TOUR, Champions Tour and Web.com Tour events, beginning in January at the Humana Challenge and concluding at the McGladrey Classic in November. Each Small Business Summit will focus on the specific challenges and opportunities that small businesses face when building an effective online presence.

"Small business owners have many competing demands on their time, foremost of which is running a successful business, and they don't always have the knowledge to successfully market their business online. A recent Web.com survey shows that 50 percent of all small businesses do not have a website, so we believe small business owners need help competing online," said David L. Brown, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Web.com. "Our mission at Web.com is simple - to help small businesses succeed online. At the Small Business Summit events, we educate small businesses on the essential steps needed to build a strong online presence, generate more customer engagement opportunities and, ultimately, grow their businesses."

Web.com's Small Business Summit focuses on topics for building a successful internet presence: the elements of a great website, how to determine if your website is working for you, increasing website and business traffic and de-mystifying how to efficiently market on Google, Facebook and Twitter. On-site Web.com ambassadors are also available to address more advanced topics including eCommerce and mobile optimization. In addition to learning from Web.com experts, attendees will also hear from other leading small business experts at many of the Small Business Summit events.

In June 2012, Web.com became the umbrella sponsor of the Web.com Tour and an official marketing partner of the PGA TOUR. Web.com developed the Web.com Small Business Summit events to benefit the small business communities where Web.com Tour, Champions Tour and PGA TOUR events are held. Since 2013, Web.com has conducted over 75 Small Business Summit educational sessions in markets across the U.S., educating over 10,000 small business attendees.
