GoDaddy, Microsoft partner for SMB solution

Having a strong online presence is growing more important by the day for small businesses because more consumers are looking online for local business information first rather than last. However, many small businesses don't have the staff or resources to create websites that will compete with national chains. Enter a new partnership between GoDaddy and Microsoft.

Today Microsoft and GoDaddy are joining forces to provide small businesses with a better online presence. Through a new partnership the two companies have released Get Online Today, an online portal that sets small businesses up with everything from custom domains and phone support to a small online ad stipend.

"In order to keep up with customers in our online world, small businesses need to have a complete online presence. Get Online Today simplifies the lives of small business owners across the globe by helping them jumpstart their online presence," said Steven Aldrich, senior vice president of Business Applications, GoDaddy. "Every business worldwide should jump on this offer from GoDaddy and Microsoft to get online quickly, easily and affordably. This new offering is another step forward in our quest to radically shift the global economy toward small business by empowering people to easily start, confidently grow and successfully run their own ventures."

The cost is set at $1 per month and gives SMB owners:

• custom domain
• 24/7 phone support from GoDaddy
• $50 credit for BING ads
• subscription to GoDaddy's Website Builder
• Microsoft Office 365 bundle

The bundle is currently available to US small businesses; the portal should roll out to international businesses in October.
