Why We Started America's Link
Having a presence on the Internet has evolved from something "nice to
have" to an essential tool to compete in today’s economy. Over one billion
small businesses have e-business sites as of March 2016. Consumers have
turned to the Internet in droves to purchase goods and services and search
for information. Consumers are spending an estimated $2.2 trillion dollars
online today, and that number is expected to grow. Consumer Spending in
the United States alone is expected to be 12002.04 USD Billion by the
end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models
and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate Consumer Spending
in the United States to stand at 11597.59 in 12 months time. In the long-term,
the United States Consumer Spending is projected to trend around 12091.36
USD Billion in 2020, according to SynchronyFinancial.com. Parallel with
this evolution is the tremendous growth of small business professionals
working independently and companies with less than 100 employees.
We started with a vision to empower small businesses to easily have a
professional web presence, and be able to keep up with the rapidly changing
Internet. We sought to remove the barriers of web site development costs,
complicated software, lack of time and web marketing knowledge for small
businesses to participate in this economic boom. We adopted a guiding
philosophy about our customers: Small business owners are entrepreneurs
whose skills are tied to managing their businesses and making things happen.
We’re an industry leader today because we maintain our original philosophy
and vision by bundling the latest Internet technology in a form that is
practical for business, easy to use and creates success for our customers.
After extensive research, America's Link began development
in early 1995 and was made available to the public in April 1996. America's
Link was built upon the guiding principals of saving customers time and
money while empowering them with knowledge of the fundamentals of advertising
via the Web. Today, America's Link is one of the Internet’s leaders in
small business customer communication, marketing and commerce.
