Durham, NC (PRWEB) August 11, 2009
Local Venture Capital firm Idea Fund Partners (IFP) announced today that it has launched the new http://www.ideafundpartners.com website on Eden Platform, a website optimization system for small businesses. Eden Platform allows small businesses and organizations to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and get more tangible results from their marketing websites.
"Eden Platform allows our team members to update our website on our own timeline." said Merrette Moore, Partner. "We chose to migrate our existing website to Eden Platform because it allowed us to take control of our online content so that we can keep it current and relevant for our online visitors."
"Idea Fund Partners serves the needs of companies looking to grow through a venture capital investment" said Aaron Houghton, CEO of Preation. "As a former recipient of funding from Idea Fund Partners at Preation's sister company iContact I know the positive effect they can have on businesses who are building a foundation for success here in North Carolina. Because of this we are proud to help Idea Fund Partners get more results from their website as they work to fulfill their mission to support great new companies in this region."
The traditional model of purchasing website maintenance and search engine optimization services can be too costly for many small businesses and entrepreneurs. Eden Platform uses proprietary technology to automate these services within a software tool that is easy enough for users without any technical or web marketing experience and that starts at just $75.00/month.
In addition to the launch of the new Idea Fund Partners website on Eden Platform, today marks the beginning of a partnership between Idea Fund Partners and Preation with the goal of bringing affordable and effective website marketing solutions to entrepreneurs.
"We partnered with Preation to make their Eden Platform solution available to the many entrepreneurs we work with here in North Carolina" said Dave Rizzo, Managing Partner. "As formal and informal advisors to many entrepreneurial firms we are often asked for solutions that drive business results at a low cost and Eden Platform has provided exactly this to our organization."
Small businesses and entrepreneurs can try Eden Platform for free with a 15 day trial at http://www.preation.com/freetrial.
