Grand Rapids, Mich (PRWEB) October 11, 2007
Mindscape, a Web development company, announced today the launch of a new campaign to help Michigan-based companies overcome the economic difficulties currently troubling the state.
As a small business in Michigan, Mindscape developed a way for businesses to become technologically viable and prevent them from becoming damaged by the economy.
"We want to help our state by bringing revenue in and we have a plan to do so using the Internet to attract out-of-state, and possibly global, business to Michigan," Paul Ferrier, co-founder of Mindscape said.
Because small business owners may view the Internet as a cost prohibitive medium, they may not have considered offering their products for sale on the Internet. These companies are failing to capitalize on the power of the Web by not getting involved in e-commerce. For this reason, Mindscape is offering the shopping cart as a free solution for companies who are looking to expand their customer base without a financial gamble.
"We are offering the shopping cart for free so companies will be able to sell their merchandise without having to spend thousands of dollars first," Pete Brand, co-founder of Mindscape, said. "This application will help local businesses get a jump-start into the e-commerce industry and will, in turn, bring money back to Michigan."
Through the use of this tool, businesses will be given the chance to increase their volume in a short amount of time. Because the Internet is so powerful, by offering this Web application Mindscape is providing Michigan businesses with a tool to succeed regardless of what the local economic conditions may be.
Although this product is not the first of its kind, it is unique because it is being offered free of charge. Mindscape feels that if used correctly, the shopping cart will provide the economy with the boost it needs.
The shopping cart is complementary for a limited time and will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. It includes many custom features that can be easily integrated into an existing website or pose as a good base to create a new one.
Mindscape is a Web development company located in Grand Rapids, Mich. Owners Pete Brand and Paul Ferrier began the company in 2001, which employs 11 team members. Please visit us on the Web at: http://www.mindscapesolutions.com
