Tempe, AZ – iPage, part of Endurance International Group’s (NASDAQ: EIGI) family of brands and a leading provider of cloud technology, web hosting and web presence solutions for small business, today announced that it has integrated Facebook into its technology platform, allowing customers to create and manage Facebook Pages directly from the iPage control panel.
“Getting discovered online is becoming increasingly challenging for small businesses. A Facebook Page gives them a more holistic online presence, allowing them to better engage and communicate directly with their customers,” said Hari Ravichandran, CEO and Founder of Endurance. “To stay competitive and relevant, small businesses have to stay ahead of the curve. At Endurance, we are always adding partnerships and products that help them do just that by enhancing and expanding their online presence to grow their business.”
The integration of Facebook into iPage’s control panel provides iPage customers access to an easy-to-use, do-it-yourself tool to create new and manage existing Facebook Pages. iPage customers will be able to change basic information on Facebook Pages and also track basic metrics like Page Likes. Future enhancements may include more advanced functionalities such as the ability to post directly to the Facebook page, create Facebook ads, and boost paid posts.
“We want our small business customers to be successful online and Facebook is an incredibly important channel for them to engage with their customers,” said John Shea, iPage General Manager and Brand CEO. “Having a strong Facebook Page presence plays an important and different role at every stage of a small business’ life cycle. There are so many great opportunities for small business owners to leverage the power of Facebook for their business and we’re excited to introduce this new integration to iPage.”
Small businesses that are just starting to establish their web presence may find it easier to create and maintain a Facebook Page and redirect online traffic from their web domain to Facebook until their website is ready. For others, with a more established web presence, a Facebook Page can play a significant role in helping drive traffic to their website or blog. Additionally, more sophisticated iPage customers will be able to leverage Facebook and our partnership with eCommerce provider Ecwid to start selling products directly from their Facebook Page.
Today, Facebook has over 40 million active Pages, including eCommerce and brick-and-mortar businesses. Facebook also serves more than two million active advertisers. The iPage Facebook integration is free to use for all iPage customers and can be accessed directly from the user’s control panel.
