Let the Pettit Company make and host your Web Site.

Do you need a Web Site?

You’ve probably wondered before -- Should my company have a Web Site on the Internet?  Is it worth the expense?

At The Pettit Company we answer ‘YES’ to the above questions.  We believe that having a web site on the Internet will allow your company to:

    1.  Maintain an equal footing with your largest competitors  they all have web sites.

    2.  Gain instant access to the ‘global marketplace’.

    3.  Distribute your company’s information worldwide in a fast and economical way.

    4.  Have your company’s information available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    5.  Use e-mail to improve customer service by being more responsive to customer queries.

    6.  Increase revenues by exposure to a new audience.

    7.  Avoid the risk of becoming ‘invisible’ -- every 2 minutes of every business day a new business joins the Internet.

What do I put on my Web Site?

The Pettit Company has designed a basic template that shows prospective or current customers:  Company information, state specific information, services offered, fees, has a fax order form, and a section to display ‘What’s New”.  Visit  us at http://www.erols.com/epettit/tpc/ to view our template.

Company Information

Describe your Company’s history, employees, business philosophy, or any other message you want to convey about your company or its employees.

State specific Information

List rules or procedures that make your state different from the other states.  For example:  how long it takes to receive a Certificate of Good Standing; whether or not UCC’s need a debtor’s signature; whether or not your state has ‘franchise tax’ and the procedures for obtaining Tax Certificates, etc.

Services Offered

List the services you offer at your State level.  You can describe what information is received when someone orders a specific type of search.  You can also describe what counties you do and what services you provide.  And lastly but probably most important, how long it takes to complete each type of service.


This is rather self explanatory.  List a cost for each service offered.

Fax Order Form

Does your company receive most of it’s orders by fax machine?  At The Pettit Company we found this to be an advantage.  Not only does it save time, but it also reduces the amount of errors made.  If you have an existing fax order form we will try to duplicate it on the Web for your prospective and existing customers to print out.  We will also take your existing order form and make it downloadable from your Web Site.

What’s New Section

Describe ‘What’s New’ in your business.  Have you offered a new service?  Added new employees?  An employee just have a new baby?  You can share any information you want with your prospective or existing clients.

I’m convinced -- How much is this going to cost me?

Surprisingly, a lot less than you think…Compare advertising on the Internet to the other typical types of advertising and you will realize that advertising on the Internet allows you to reach a much larger audience for less.
