Changing the "Face" of Business on the Web

Companies Find a Way to Add Salesmanship and the Human Element to Websites

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2006 -- When was the last time you left a store with an item you didn't really need, but were "sold" on the item due to the help of a good salesman? That salesmanship and human contact is now showing up on websites across the country. Companies and even celebrities are looking for ways to stand out from their online competition and increase website sales and response rates.

Having a real person walk out on the pages of a website catches people's attention and is the online equivalent to having a store clerk's help. This phenomenon is now a reality due to a creative twist on technology. This technology brings more human quality to websites. The numbers weigh in: companies and celebrities adding a virtual salesperson or themselves to their websites are astounded at the increase in sales and response rates they receive.

"I can see this technology revolutionizing the web as we know it. It has really increased response rates on my website and made it more unique to site visitors," said Dr. Leon Ren, DDS, who uses the technology.

W5 Internet, a 10-year-old website development company based in Irvine, California, launched this technology in November of 2004. They call the technology my Virtual Sales Person™. It is changing the way we see, and now hear, websites today! The technology requires no additional user software or plug-ins to view, no special high bandwidth connection and no special hosting requirements or changes to a current site.

The overwhelming response to this technology continues to grow. "The Amazing Race" celebrity and Playboy Centerfold, Victoria Fuller, is using the technology. Celebrities and musicians wanting to be "seen and heard" are currently in discussion with W5 Internet to add "live web site walk ons" to their static websites as well.

Entrepreneur of the Year, Financial Consultant and Mentor, Bruce A. Berman, is thrilled with his "virtual website." Berman states, "It is the most incredible piece of technology and it puts me light years above other people." Berman continues, " Thank you for building the most incredible website I've ever experienced. The feedback I'm getting from me walking out onto my site is second to none." Other such companies that are benefiting from this technology include: Zone Diet at Home, Encore Nationwide, Prolong, Sabco USA, eBay's ePower & Profits and Copenbarger Law Firm.

People expect and want more from websites today. At times they need a little nudge to be "sold." my Virtual Sales Person™ offers human interaction and a live person to help sell, educate and entertain site visitors. The days of silent movies have long since been a thing of the past, and soon generic text-based websites will be, too.
