WebsitesGiveBack provides an innovative opportunity for small businesses to obtain a professional, affordable website while donating to a charitable organization.
Online PR News – 13-September-2010 – – FRONT ROYAL, VA (SEPTEMBER 12, 2010) – By providing a cost-effective alternative to small business owners discouraged by the high costs of obtaining and managing a website necessary in today’s competitive marketplace and knowing donations to charitable organizations are on the decline due to the sluggish economy, two local entrepreneurs, Linda Saker and her daughter Elena Patrice, launch WebsitesGiveBack. This website design company also hosts and maintains the websites it creates for the small business owner, while donating, on their client’s behalf, a substantial portion of the cost of sale for each website to a recognized and worthy charitable organization.
WebsitesGiveBack helps small businesses by providing complete website packages with no monthly fees or contract for a flat rate of $499. WGB also supports charitable causes by donating $100 of the costs of each of website, on behalf of their customers, to a charity of their customer’s choice. Donations are not bundled and WGB receives no credit – the business owner receives the full tax benefit. WGB has an ambitious goal — to raise $60,000 in 2011 —for the causes its clients select to help.
After a prior venture in the publishing /toy industry lost funding due to the economy, Linda, 65, and Elena, 42, were unemployed. “To save on expenses, we combined households and I moved to Front Royal. Unfortunately, employment opportunities are limited.” says Elena, also a single mother of a preschooler. She adds, “We had to make a living – we are entrepreneurs – WebsitesGiveBack is our personal economic recovery plan.”
Both Linda and Elena consider this alliance with other small businesses and charitable organizations as an excellent opportunity to promote good business and goodwill. “It’s a win-win-win for everyone,” says Linda. “WebsitesGiveBack – it’s about the Three C’s – Company – Customer – Cause,” she says. “This idea led to the development of strategies where good business and goodwill come together.”
WGB not only provides straightforward, easy-to-navigate websites and donates a significant portion of proceeds from sales; it also offers a discount to its local neighbors, a generous referral plan, and a “Name the Price” program on its daily blog, The Wrap.
