October 15, 2012 // Franchising.com // PostNet, the nation’s first Neighborhood Business Center and pioneer of the small-business services segment in the U.S., has partnered with Hostopia®, a Deluxe® company and leading provider of web services for small-to-medium sized businesses, to provide web sites, mobile pages and email marketing for PostNet customers. The new web services are currently available at select PostNet franchise locations and will roll out nationwide in 2013.
The partnership with Hostopia is the latest move in PostNet’s ongoing initiative to provide businesses with the customized solutions they need to build their brand awareness, customer base, and profitability. The new offerings include consultative web design and hosting services, mobile site development and email marketing tools for all types of businesses, from independent contractors and freelancers, to established retailers.
“In working with Hostopia, we’ll provide the business community with simple and cost-effective web solutions that many entrepreneurs think are beyond their reach,” said Steve Greenbaum, CEO of PostNet International Franchise Corporation.“Business owners need to have a robust online presence and online marketing strategy to compete in today’s marketplace, but many don’t have the resources to hire someone to code a website from scratch or have the time to do it themselves; we provide an affordable and efficient solution, right in their backyard.”
Over the last few years, PostNet has evolved with technology to meet the changing needs of small-business owners. With the goal of providing integrated web, print, local, mobile and social media solutions for all small businesses, PostNet franchise owners work closely with clients to identify their objectives, build upon their ideas, and develop the best strategies to achieve their goals. This includes anything associated with gaining and retaining customers, from multi-channel marketing campaigns and integrating new and traditional marketing methods, to social media services.
