Cablevision has added a product suite from Network Solutions to its Optimum Business Benefits program that will help small businesses improve their Web presence, manage their domains and boost their internal marketing efforts.
Network Solutions' offer for Optimum Business Benefits members includes 50 percent off small, large or unlimited packages for Web hosting, including domain, e-mail and website builder, as well as 50 percent off annual rates for local search visibility.
"The Web is such an important tool for small businesses today, helping them market themselves, find and educate new customers, and, ultimately, develop new sales," said Stephanie Anderson, vice president of marketing for commercial services at Cablevision. "This latest offer from Network Solutions puts our customers in the online driver's seat and gives them everything they need to get started at the value they've come to expect from working with Optimum Business."
Cablevision has been building up an online tool chest to benefit small- and medium-size businesses that subscribe to both its data and voice services through its Optimum Business Benefits program  that launched a year ago.
The program was designed to provide access to mission-critical business tools to help small businesses run more smoothly, efficiently and cost-effectively.
Last month, Citrix Online joined founding members  FedEx, ADP, CardWorks and U.S. Business Technology in the Optimum Business Benefits program.
