JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Small business operators know that Facebook is now critical to their business success, but these busy entrepreneurs often lack the time and expertise to create and maintain an effective social media strategy. That's why Web.com, (Nasdaq:WWWW) a leading provider of Internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, now offers an affordable, professional option to promote a small business online with a custom Facebook Company Page.

"With more than 500 million active users, an effective Facebook presence is no longer a luxury for small business, it's becoming a necessity for many," commented David L. Brown, chairman and chief executive officer of Web.com. "But a meaningful presence on Facebook—one that represents your brand accurately and professionally—takes effort and resources that a small business person may not have. Web.com can be a small business' social media creative agency, helping them create a Facebook fan base and maximize those relationships to drive sales."

To help small businesses harness the power of Facebook, Web.com will:

  • Professionally design a Facebook Company Page, optimized to increase online exposure and motivate fans with prominent calls to action 
  • Create content that effectively represents the business and highlights offers/promotions
  • Refresh the Facebook Company page monthly to continually engage fans

Since research shows that 60 percent of Facebook users indicated they "like" a company in order to learn more about new products and services, small businesses stand to be one of the greatest beneficiaries of social media's opportunities. Consulting with a Web.com professional can maximize a small business' ability to engage those fans in a way that rapidly builds awareness and attracts prospects.

To learn more about Web.com's Facebook Company Page, go to www.web.com/Facebook or call 1-800-952-6764.
