Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 13, 2012
GovKinex is not only helping contractors develop their own personalized web brochure in the preferred federal government format – they are also helping vendors get registered in the new System for Award Management.
SAM was launched last month and has been causing headaches for users ever since. With significant downtime and crippling errors, many users have been searching for help getting their registration completed.
GovKinex, in conjunction with US Federal Contractor Registration, has announced that a new registration in SAM or migration of legacy CCR and ORCA registrations to SAM is included with their premier web design and government marketing service.
“It doesn’t help our clients whatsoever if they have the website and the marketing, but their registration is out of date or incorrect,” explained James Logan, Small Business Acquisition Manager at GovKinex. “What we’re doing is offering a complete package to help these businesses get contracts.”
In addition to the SAM registration and migration, GovKinex creates a customized 7-page web brochure for government contractors. Unlike traditional web design firms which push unnecessary bells and whistles which may prevent purchasing officers from being able to view their site, GovKinex uses the simple, clean format which is preferred by government agencies.
Due to the sensitive information they work with every day, government web browsers are protected by powerful firewalls which may block popular flashy components used on private sector websites. “If purchasing officers can’t access your website, they can’t buy your product or service,” commented Eric Knellinger, President of US Federal Contractor Registration. “Our sites have been thoroughly tested to ensure that federal employees can view them without any issues.”
GovKinex’s service includes SAM registration or migration, a branded domain, creation of a 7 page site in the proper government format, hosting and updates for one year, inclusion in the official government small business search engine, and email bid notification, all at the fraction of the cost of a traditional design firm.
Companies new to government contracting and small business owners are strongly encouraged by the Small Business Administration to aggressively market their products and services to buyers in order to effectively compete in the federal market. Judy Bradt estimates that businesses spend an average of 20 months and $100,000 marketing their business to contracting agencies just to win their first contract. Creating a website highlighting your capabilities as a government contractor should be a major part of any vendor’s marketing strategy.
A study conducted by BIA/Kelsey last year found that 97% of consumers use online media to research products and services before purchasing. Government contracting officers are no exception and the Federal Acquisition Regulations actually require procurement officers to conduct market research in order to make better use of federal dollars.
GovKinex is a division of US Federal Contractor Registration, a third party registration firm based in Orlando, FL which has helped thousands of businesses complete their SAM registration and bid on contracts. US Federal Contractor Registration pairs businesses with a dedicated case manager who helps them every step of the way from initial registration to bidding on contracts.
