SustainableMarketing.com, a sustainable business network focused on
marketing, launches a web hosting service that is -powered by the wind-
The service goes beyond traditional web hosting by offering its
customers services connecting them to other green entrepreneurs.
If youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢re starting a new green business, finding customers and partners
can be difficult. A company called SustainableMarketing.com is offering
to help solve this problem, and is also including wind-powered web
hosting as part of its services.
After trying many business models, and having a few small business
crises themselves, the SustainableMarketing.com website has grown into
a community of around 150 green entrepreneurs. Unlike other small web
hosting companies, customers have access to the collection of
sustainability focused marketing articles and tools on the website, and
if they choose, each other. -Internet marketing and websites make sense
for green business because itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s the most cost-effective marketing
available, and it uses far less physical resources,- explained Ivan
Storck, SustainableMarketing.com founder.
After the dot-com bust, Storck now applies his IT and Marketing skills
to his passion for the environment, and believes -the best way to
affect positive change is to encourage ecopreneurs, the small green
businesses offering products that are better for peopleÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s health, their
budgets, and the earth, too.- For anyone who meets him in person, itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s
also obvious that he loves talking about other green companies and is a
ceaseless networker, both offline and online.
Some of the websites SustainableMarketing is hosting now include an
health and wellness consultants (LivingYourLight.net, EagleYoga.com),
consulting professionals ( LaraAbrams.com,
VisionaryCommunications.com), healthy living stores (CafeMate.org and
HealthArts.tv) sustainability consultants (DeclarationOfLeadership.com,
Solutionaries.com), and IT consultants (Ethotec.com) There are some
website owners that choose not to participate in the green community,
but want a responsibly powered web host. Others have made connections
through the site that lead to new business.
The servers run even when the wind isnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t blowing. The websites are
physically located in professional data centers in New Jersey and
Texas, giving complete backup and power redundancy to customers. The
wind power is served up through the purchase of renewable energy
certificates from a partner company called Krystal Planet.
SustainableMarketing.com uses the wind power certificates to offset
pollution caused by the electricity used for its web servers and office
