How would you like to drive down town and pick up a web hosting account?
The web host Slamdot hopes you’d very much like the idea of doing that. They announced they will begin selling professionally designed web site packages very soon through a retail store. The first store will be open in Knoxville, Tennesee offering web site design packages, support, and in-store training.
Other specialty stores like this, such as the Apple stores across the nation have done very well because they not only give a local and familiar face to the product, but they also create a different sense of community that you can not give online. Dropping an e-mail to a support team is very different than walking into a store and asking for help.
This is the type of new, innovative, out-of-the-box idea I really like to see, and I wish them the best of luck.
