Yahoo Small Business Launched New Service to Help SMBSMorgan Gertler
In today’s digitally-focused world, having a professional business website is non-negotiable. A good website is one of the best ways to get prospective and current customers to find you, contact you, and learn about your business. However, many small business owners don’t have the skills, knowledge, time, or resources in-house to design and maintain their website – and as a result, they risk losing revenue.
To address this need, Yahoo Small Business (YSB) has launched Website Design Service — a new affordable and easy-to-use service that helps design, build, manage, and update professional websites for small business owners. Unlike many of the other tools that only handle the initial design, YSB also works with business owners after the site is launched to oversee the ongoing management and updates to the site, including:
- Proactively updating security plug-ins
- Refreshing/adding content to keep the site fresh and increase visits
- SEO optimization of all content to help with search rankings
“Our mission is to help small businesses thrive, and a high performing, fully updated website is one of the most important keys to success,”Kush Shrivstava
This service helps business owners focus on their core strengthens within their business — building customer relationships, offering top-notch service, and selling products — ultimately driving the business forward.

(This includes proactively updating security plug-ins). Plus, all website content is reviewed for SEO optimization before and after launch, which can help websites get higher page rankings and increased organic traffic, and that means more customers.

With Website Design Service, small business owners don’t need to spend extensive time or money learning how to code or optimize for search rankings. Yahoo Small Business will handle the heavy-lifting to deliver the world-class website they need to effectively connect with their customers.” said Kush Shrivastava, managing director of Yahoo Small Business.
