    RICHMOND, Va., April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Within the past two years, the
 number of small businesses building websites has exploded. Now that all these
 sites have been built, someone needs to keep them up to date. "Despite their
 size and relative simplicity, these small business sites still have to be
 maintained as products, services and other business information changes," says
 Keith West, President of WebsiteChanges.
     WebsiteChanges fills the need. Service plans are simple. For an affordable
 monthly fee, site owners can submit changes that will be finished within a
 guaranteed period of time. A matrix of options allows clients to select a plan
 that fits their needs based on the number of changes and turnaround time
 required. More information is available at http://www.websitechanges.com .
     "This is a big problem that isn't being addressed," says West. "Web
 designers are focused on creating new sites and major rebuilds, not
 incremental adjustments to existing sites."
     The result is frustration for the site owner and an inefficient work
 process for designers.  "The only options available to small businesses in the
 past were limited and complicated programs such as Microsoft FrontPage, or
 overloaded designers. Now site owners can have continual and dependable access
 to talented designers for just the amount of time they need."
     According to the 2000 annual Dun & Bradstreet Survey, 38% of U.S. small
 businesses have their own website.  "Maintaining these sites is a big issue.
 As larger businesses with more established sites are discovering, content
 management is one of their most challenging problems," says West.
     There is a thriving market for content management software, but the
 packages are oriented to very large sites and cost between $50,000 and
 $500,000. "This is far beyond the needs and budgets of most small businesses,
 most of which cannot afford a dedicated web person and find it expensive to
 train and divert someone from other duties," states West, a former Navy pilot
 and Annapolis graduate who joined MCI as a systems engineer before founding
 WebsiteChanges.
