Small business website
services provider LEAP Small Business is pleased to announce that
it will be partnering with several regional businesses as Value-Added
Resellers. In addition to a partnership with business service provider
InsightBusiness, LEAP Small Business has contracted with several
other businesses in the region to add self-serve business website and
online marketing plans to their existing service offerings.
The companies who will be adding LEAP Small Business system to
provide web services for their customers presently offer business
services such as commercial printing, graphic design, and computer
networking. For these value-added resellers, the addition of website
services and online marketing capabilities was a natural extension of
their existing business services.
The agreement with InsightBusiness will allow the business services
company to add a website building solution as well as online marketing
tools such as pay-per-click advertising and email newsletters to their
strong complement of business connectivity, video and hosting services.
According to Amy Warren, InsightBusiness director of sales, their
customers are excited to begin using the new system, which went live in
August. "InsightBusiness is committed to providing the best in business
services to our customers. We believe that 'simple is better,' and the
LEAP Small Business solution is a simple way for our customers to
market their business on the web."

customers, without having to hire additional staff or require our
existing employees to learn an entirely new discipline."

we really liked about the LEAP Small Business solution was that it
allows us to add web services while still maintaining control over the

Concept Media, Digital Design & Advertising, and Prather Design are
three additional businesses who have signed up as Value-Added Resellers
with LEAP Small Business.
LEAP Small Business expects continued growth throughout the
remainder of 2007, as more and more business service companies respond
to the demand for small business web solutions. Their unique system,
in which users can build and deploy a professional site, and then
promote that site on the web via pay-per-click, email newsletters and a
user-friendly e-marketing knowledgebase, gives Value-Added Resellers
more power and more control with less effort than other solutions.
"I love working with business service providers that can really benefit
from a system like this, which allows them to add high-quality small
business web services quickly and simply," said Jay Stewart, Vice
President Channel Partners for LEAP Small Business. "We are getting
such a positive response to our value-added reseller program at the
local and regional level that I am excited to see what happens when we
launch our national outreach campaigns."
