They all share a singular challenge: these days you must have a polished presence on the Internet for anyone to find you and take you seriously. That's the idea behind a new contest launched by HomeSpun Websites, makers of affordable build-your-own websites to robust big brand sites and social networks. Any business, individual or nonprofit could win a $20,000 custom-built website (including marketing and design) just by getting friends, fans and colleagues to vote for it.
HomeSpun Websites has also made it possible for customers to create opportunities for those in need with its "Put America Back to Work" plan. For every 10 new customers who sign up to build or convert their website to HomeSpun, the company will award a free fully built website with hosting to a school/non-profit in need or an individual who has been out of work for at least one year and wants to start a business.
