Luxury Online Marketplace Solves Website Solutions with Content Management System.

With The Net Impact's CMS system we've been able to provide our members with state of the art offer pages that not only detail the retailers promotions and incorporate their links, but also promote our own Golden Portal Visa. This system is also very flexible to frequent changes due to our Retailer's ever -changing promotional calendar

GoldenPortal.com, an Internet marketplace that links members with trusted, high-quality retailers, launched a new website on September 1, 2009. The unique, member-only club joined forces with The Net Impact®, a St. Louis Web Design and Internet Marketing Firm, to enhance their website.

"It is exciting when The Net Impact® has the opportunity to work with a fresh and entrepreneurial idea. Working with Jim O'Brien and the original GoldenPortal.com Design, created by Tom Zimmerman, has allowed us to take on unique challenges by using innovative and special components in Auctori™, our Web-Based Content Management System," said Steve Thomas, President of The Net Impact®.

Golden Portal's Members and Families gain direct entry to their exclusive retailers from any computer or Hand-held PDA, making the need for a well-designed and user-friendly website an important component of the company. Once online members can simply enter their membership number and password to gain access to 40 distinct product categories and over 55 Retailers. The list includes top level Retailers such as Nordstrom's, Ann Klein, Jones of New York, Waterford, etc, as well as the best mainstream Retailers like Bass Pro, Best Buy Office Depot, Pet Smart, etc. Golden Portal's strategy is to select the best retailers within a merchandise category and get you their best deals. So right now on their site they guide you to 40-70% OFF deals with most of those Retailers.

In addition, our own exclusive Golden Portal Rewards Visa will provide: 1% Cash back on all purchases, plus extra cash back on many of the Retailers we sponsor, such as:

•An Extra 5% Cash Back for Bass Pro, Sephora, iTunes

•6-8% Cash Back for Pet Smart, Omaha Steaks, 1-800contacts

•11-14% Cash Back for 1-800Flowers, 1-800petmeds & ebags.

Golden Portal reached out to the Net Impact® to find a flexible and dynamic way to create new pages, support vendor relationships and make changes to their website with a sense of urgency. The Net Impact® Team and the Auctori™Team were a perfect match to meet the client-oriented company's needs. The Net Impact® used their partner product, Auctori™ - a Content Management System (CMS) built for SEO, to take Golden Portal's existing site and place their design into the CMS. This gave Golden Portal the ability to manage their website and update their offer pages at anytime, by simply having an internet connection.

"With The Net Impact's CMS system we've been able to provide our members with state of the art offer pages that not only detail the retailers promotions and incorporate their links, but also promote our own Golden Portal Visa. This system is also very flexible to frequent changes due to our Retailer's ever -changing promotional calendar," said James S. O'Brien, Chairman and CEO, GoldenPortal.com.

In addition to GoldenPortal.com having their site within the CMS, Auctori™ also created a self-registration tool for web users and created a login area for members, which includes links exclusive offers from retailers. An Affiliate Management Administration tool was also created in the CMS and numerous Golden Portal employees were trained by The Net Impact® and Auctori™ Teams on how to continue building pages as more retailers sign on to their site.

"Jim is a real professional with great experience in this area. We are enthused about Golden Portal's opportunity to prosper," said Thomas.
