Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) November 21, 2011
Overflow Cafe is a website promotion company that serves clients worldwide. In 2010 they offered thousands of free accounts to single parents, both mothers and fathers, who were starting a new business.
The company provided it's advertising service completely free for a period of 12 months to allow clients to review results and develop their business. Overflow Cafe recently reported that 22% of those new businesses are now expanding and hiring employees. Almost every single client who went through the free trial has now become a paying client.
The company surveyed clients, and of the 3,139 single parent participants, 96% rated Overflow Cafe as highly effective, 3% rated the company as not effective and 1% were unsure. The results and reviews are so positive that Overflow Cafe is now preparing to offer free service to a limited number of USA and Canadian military personnel who are coming back from active duty and are starting a business.
Jeff Hall, a representative from Overflow Cafe says “we already give away at least 10% of our income to different charitable causes, we already volunteer our time to help people, we figured, why not also give free service to new business owners who are struggling single parents or just starting out after returning from active military duty? We got so much positive publicity recently because of all this. Recently someone published a positive review to their business group and in one week we received almost 11,000 emails and 2,500 phone calls from new potential clients, over and above our normal volume. It was very unexpected and we are desperately trying to catch up. Even though we can't help everyone, the feedback has been so positive. We've been invited to trade shows and to speak at various events, we are a small company so this has all been an adventure.”
