Welcome to Norwood Mall .com . My name is John Dingle. I am the Webmaster for the "Mall." The concept behind this Website is simple: To give Norwood area business and community members an opportunity to exchange information and conduct business over the Internet.
The Mall is designed to place small businesses on the internet for a fraction of the cost and effort it would take if every business owner had to do it themselves. Many can and many do. Yet the amount of time involved maintaining a Web site is the downside.
If it were just a matter of placing a page on the internet everyone would do it. It is much more than that. How do you get people to visit your Website? That's the hard part. You are competing with literally MILLIONS of pages. The "Mall" concept of putting all the Neponset Valley business pages together where they are easily found by local households to browse through works.
Yellow Pages or the World Wide Web?
When was the last time you looked forward to sitting down to read page after page of the Yellow Pages? And then, how many businesses did you call? How much of their merchandise or services did you see; and how much did you buy over the phone? The answers are: Never; None; Unavailable; and Zero.
Yet, millions of people do just that over the internet every day, all over the world, 24 hours a day. With respect to the Internet the answers to these same questions are: Everyday, All I could find, All that was available, and as much as I wanted.... Get my point?
Why Shop At The Mall?
Gone are the days when the local news was heralded from street corners,
local events talked about in community squares and messages were posted
and read at local grocery stores. It's all being done at a computer
terminal in the comfort of ones own home by over 70 million people world
wide. This number is expected to reach over 200 Million by the year
Where the will technology go from here?
With all the advances in Internet Technology and the ever increasing options available to Website owners and Webmasters, I'm really not sure that the Mall will ever truly reach a completion point... at least not in this century. I can promise you this, Norwood Mall .com is ready to meet the needs of the 21st Century now, and you can be a part of this technology TODAY...
There will be new businesses renting space all the time, and each of you
will bring something special to this Website. Whether it's discounts
not found in the local newspapers, free software to download, or
introducing visitors to products and services they didn't know Norwood
or the Internet had to offer. Norwood's "Mall" will be constantly
refreshed with new pages to attract repeat visits by Norwood area households.
There are advantages to using an Internet Hosting Service like this. What makes Norwood Mall .com right for you is the fact it is geared toward your local community, just like your business. We are located in your community, and we are dedicated to the same customers as you.
Many businesses go on the Internet with expectations of getting customers from all over the world overnight. Although this is possible, we have to walk before we can run. I say WE because that's exactly how this works. WE all work together to make Norwood Mall .com working on a local level. To attract the World to our Shopping Mall we must first build a network of pages with the proper coordination to attract a TOP TEN RANKING in major search engines like Yahoo, Excite/AOL Search, Alta Vista, ect. That's MY job.
Our fees are competitive.
There are Hosts in other communities working to accomplish the same task, we wish them luck, in fact we list them on our board as a service to all who would use them. We also list them so you can compare our fees to there's. We are all about the same. What makes Norwood Mall .coma leader in this field, as you will see, is the amount of capital we obviously return into the project's success.
The fees we charge are based on the present amount of traffic we generate for you by the features we ourselves have to pay for. In addition to these features, we provide marketing and advertisement campaigns for the Mall with a large percentage of these fees.
Just three years ago, if you had a Website on the internet you were thought of as innovative. Today, if you don't have a Website, or at least a Web Page, your rarely thought of at all.
Our purpose is to help you begin to create an Internet presence today. You can design a multi-page internet extravaganza in the future if you like. But one thing is for certain, your presence will have to begin with that first page. My 1st Page was started for just that reason, to introduce small businesses to the Internet.
