Only 1/3 of all small businesses will reach their 10th anniversary.
Half are out of business in five years!

82% of businesses that fail do so because of cash flow problems

As a busy entrepreneur, you struggle to get everything done, pay your employees, keep up with market changes, and attract new customers.  You count our your website to help with the last one, but you are at the mercy of big search engines who seem to favor large business over small, companies with large pay per click advertising budgets!  All too often you feel like your website is just sitting there being unused, not drawing the customers you need to survive and thrive.

Like all things in business, your website, social networking channels and marketing presentations must be kept fresh.  Technology changes, trends, and even your competitors keep forcing you to change in order to be relevant in the marketplace. 

But who has the time?

We do!  With Virtual Web Department, we'll provide the ongoing content and marketing development your business needs to successfully thrive in the market place.  No long-term contracts!  No set-up charges.  Just a fair monthly price.

  • creating print and ad direct mail advertising

We can work with most website publishing platforms or can create a new WordPress website.
