SmoothStart is a new Web 2.0 online application service designed to provide businesses with a simple way to get online and generate sales leads through their easy-to-use landing page and form builder. The best part of the service is that it is offered free of charge for a limited time.
First developed in 2001, SmoothStart was offered as a tool used exclusively by Fortune 500 companies with large budgets to support such a solution. SmoothStart will now become available to the general public as a free solution for the first time in early 2008.
It is also fully integrated with Google Adwords, Yahoo! Search Marketing and MSN AdCenter to provide users with the ability to gain exposure on these search engines, while also simplifying the process of search engine marketing with their campaign management.
By taking advantage of AJAX and the Ruby on Rails framework, it provides a stable environment with real-time lead stats such as estimated salary, home value, company profile, local demographics, weather, news and much more – all which can help customers qualify their leads.
