Do-It-Yourself Online Editing for anyone to edit their current website; Expert developers available for Custom Work
Edit.com (www.edit.com) today
announced a new way for small and medium size businesses to quickly,
easily and cost-effectively edit their website content and features.
There is no software to install, nothing to learn and no need for
customers to change their website design or hosting in any way.
“It’s 2005 and most businesses have a website, but many, especially
smaller ones, don’t have an easy way to change what their current
website says, how it looks and what it does,” Steve Grushcow, founder
and CEO of Edit.com. “We make websites editable with our Do-It-Yourself
Online Editing service and provide access to our expert developers for
our customers’ custom work needs. The beauty of Edit.com is how we
combine easy-to-use online technology and expert service to offer a
truly complete website maintenance solution.”
Editing made easy with Edit.com
Customers browse their own site and type changes right into their web
pages — all from within their web browser. They can immediately change
text, formatting, images, links and even add new pages.
To make a site editable, Edit.com adds a few invisible HTML codes into
the web pages. By making only certain parts of each page editable,
Edit.com protects the design and functionality of the site from damage.
Websites grow, businesses evolve
Customers can make most edits themselves using Do-It-Yourself Online
Editing, but every customer also has access to expert developers.
Customers can request a free Custom Work quote whenever they need
someone to add features or adjust the way their website works. Examples
of Custom Work include adding or adjusting e-commerce, newsletter
subscriptions, databases or changing the site structure and layout.
Varied, devoted clientele
As of January 2005, Edit.com has almost 100 pre-launch customers using the service.
“We have a small staff that is non-technical, and we wanted an easy way
to keep our website useful to our current and potential customers,”
said Steve Browning of Browning, Kaleczyc, Berry and Hoven, P.C., a law
firm with 22 attorneys based in Montana (www.bkbh.com).
“Not only does Edit.com provide us with an easy way to handle website
updating ourselves, their staff has also helped us add features. It’s
comforting to have a reliable company for our website needs.”
