JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Web.com (Nasdaq:WEB), the marketing partner for businesses wanting to connect with more customers and grow, today announced the launch of a branded online video, a social media contest, and an endorsement agreement with Jacksonville Jaguars Running Back Leonard Fournette — all to communicate the company’s mission of helping small businesses achieve their potential.
Branded Online Video
The brief Jaguars-themed video features Jaguars Running Back Leonard Fournette and Jaguars Team Owner Shad Khan, who reveal a shared key ingredient to their professional success. The video resides on the “Power Your Potential Contest” page of Web.com.
“The journey of the small-business owner and professional athlete are not dissimilar. Often, they start their adventures alone, but over time the most successful ones learn to surround themselves with the right teams and tools to excel at their professions,” said David Brown, chairman, CEO and president of Web.com. “At Web.com, we’re in the business of helping our customers and employees reach their potential, because people in every profession have the capacity to succeed if they have the determination and a little support. Our video is a reminder that the best and brightest in this world, regardless of the profession, usually have help along the way.”
Social Media Contest
