To say the last few weeks have been crazy here at Solid Cactus would be an understatement!
We had our sixth Boot Camp @ HQ which was an overwhelming success. Nearly 40 e-commerce merchants from around the country spent three days learning about Internet marketing, store design, customer service, store features and best practices from Solid Cactus team members. They also had the opportunity to attend sessions put on by guest presenters from Yahoo! Small Business, Google, Best of the Web and MeritCard.

Have You Heard the News?
At the end of April, we announced that Solid Cactus was acquired by the leading provider of online marketing services for small businesses, Web.com (NASDAQ: WWWW).
All of us are excited to be part of the larger Web.com family that now numbers 850 employees across the United States and Canada.
The first thing you may be asking is, “What does this mean for me?” Simply put, it means “business as usual.” While we may have a new owner, everything and everyone you know and trust at Solid Cactus is the same.
Our commitment to being a total e-commerce solutions provider remains unchanged, in fact, it’s going to become even stronger. David Brown, our CEO, echoed that sentiment in a press release, “The acquisition of Solid Cactus demonstrates our commitment to providing small medium businesses with a broad range of solutions and domain expertise to help them convert website traffic to sales.”
Rest assured, we will continue to design, program and support your e-commerce store today, tomorrow and in the future. We recently introduced eight new products for Yahoo! Store at Boot Camp, and just introduced a ninth, Scratch & Save. No other developer has ever come out with nine new products at one time and we will continue to constantly introduce new products and features to make your store a success.
Finally, I invite you to visit us at the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition in Boston, June 15th through the 18th. Stop by the Solid Cactus booth to see what’s new.
