NMBS website guide helps merchants set their sites on profit

Published:  08 March, 2010

LEICESTER: Twenty members of the National Merchant Buying Society have already taken up the opportunity to create their own space on a free web system, designed to give those without a site an opportunity to have an online presence.

The NMBS’ facility for members to create their own websites was launched recently and already the interest shown in it has grown.

“All a member needs to do is to purchase a domain name and the rest is easy,” said managing director, Chris Hayward.

“With simple-to-follow instructions and pre-designed templates, a website can be created in as little as five minutes.”

One user, Greg Layzell from JR Layzell's and Son set up a free website after finding it difficult to produce a site on his own. "NMBS has provided me with the perfect tool to create a website. The instructions enabled me to set it up in no time and NMBS was always on hand if I had any questions," he explained.

The current design gives the user the option to add the following features:

* Upload product catalogues.

* Provide a branch locator – to help customers locate them.

* Create special offers online.

* Inform customers of latest news.

* Send out e-newsletters to all email addresses.

To find out more about the free website and how to claim your place on the web, email: leanne.blick@nmbs.co.uk
