October is Small Business Month in Canada, and two prominent companies have teamed up to celebrate by giving customers an opportunity to win a free Fast Track WordPress website or a professionally made web video. The contest goes through the end of the month and is open to all Canadian residents except those in Québec. It takes only a few minutes to sign up (http://www.webnamescontest.ca) and no purchase is necessary.
The point of the contest is to showcase the importance of having a quality website enhanced with video services. Statistics show that websites utilizing video in certain ways experience increased traffic and are more likely to convert visiting customers into paying customers. Video has become such an important part of good web development that companies who can master its use are leading the way into the Internet of the future.
The two companies joining up in this promotion are Webnames.ca and Small Business BC. Webnames.ca is Canada’s original domain name registrar and one of the leading web hosting service providers in Canada. The company provides web hosting and e-mail services, domain management, web development, online video, SSL certificates, and more. Although they host customers at every level, serving the business community is their specialty.
Small Business BC is a publicly funded entity with the mission of providing new business owners the information and advice they need to build a solid business from scratch. They also help existing businesses grow and expand by providing a combination of resources, tools, education, and business products owners find beneficial to their success. Small Business BC is funded by BC’s Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation and Western Economic Diversification Canada.
