Get Site Tracked, a London, UK-based company that provides a search engine optimized website package for sole traders and small business owners in the UK, has raised £100k in equity crowdfunding through Crowdcube.
Twenty-nine investors have acquired a 33% stake in the company.
Get Site Tracked intends to use the funding to expand its head office and regional telesales and web building teams, improve its administration systems, and develop SoleTraderForum.com, a forum that provides a platform for UK sole traders and small business owners to share business, post work, list classifieds and discuss any other small business information.
Founded in December 2010 by Sebastian Lewis, the company uses regional telesales representatives to contact sole traders and small to medium sized business owners personally, through direct email and tele marketing, with the aim of moving their details from hand delivered directories to having their own website listed on top search engines.
Get Site Tracked targets sole traders and small to medium sized businesses who have either not yet got their business online or are unhappy with their current website performance.
