Online PR News – 30-January-2013 – Toledo, Ohio – TREVOSE, PA – January 24, 2013 – The Advertising Specialty Institute® (ASI) today announced ESP Websites™ hit a major milestone, surpassing 5,000 published sites, and now are partnering with Corporate Image Builders in Toledo, Ohio.
The end-buyer-friendly websites offer the latest Web technology, feature a fast, dynamic shopping engine to drive sales and leads and promote selling with pre-built, ready-to-use product content such as videos, product collections and news.
Recent enhancements for ESP Websites include:
• More videos. Manage up to 50 product videos – seven times more than before – to demo how products work and look.
• Custom products. Copy a product to create a custom product – and choose how it’s displayed: shared or private.
• Easier filtering. Breeze through over 130 templates, which now include popular filters like Logo Size, Video, Social Feed, Google Maps and Left Navigation.
• Super socialization. Share products directly on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn – and now Pinterest.
ESP Websites launched in May and immediately caught distributors by storm, with nearly 5,500 sites already live and thousands more going live in coming months. With hundreds of templates to choose from, distributors can sharply differentiate their companies from the competition. All sites are ecommerce-enabled, allowing members to accept credit cards and customers to make down payments to secure orders.
“It’s awesome,” said Lisa Marks, owner of On Your Marks. “Searchability for our customers is paramount and we now have an easy solution for them. It’s enabled us to compete for new types of business and easily integrates with our email marketing. Plus, we can easily customize our client sites, making them more individualized. But you don’t have to be a web designer/expert by any stretch – and when you need ASI support, they’re great.” Marks now has 10 ESP Websites and said, “I’m certain we’ll see an increase in business over the next 12 months.”
“We’re celebrating our website as we strive to enhance our customer satisfaction,” said Copi Valdiviez, of Corporate Image Builders. “We’re continually leveraging all of our technical resources to ensure major enhancements streamline the entire customer experience. Throughout the process, we keep customer requests front and center, making sure each one receives the products they need when they need them.”
