EdgeSportsSites.com - A New Approach to Personal Sports Websites
December 05, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsEdge Sports Sites proudly announces the launch of www.edgesportssites.com, which has been specifically created to assist athletes and coaches around the world, by offering high impact, flash sports websites at affordable prices.
Created by a former collegiate and professional golfer in response to a need to keep family and friends updated on progress and help gain much needed sponsorship, EdgeSportsSites.com provides athletes and coaches the opportunity to purchase the most powerful self promotion tool available – a personal sports website.
“I was finding that other players on tour were starting to build a fan base as a result of having their own website”, explained Edge Sports Sites client and professional golfer, Glyn Meredith. “More importantly, they were gaining financial support and free equipment and clothing from companies in return for displaying company logos on their websites. I looked into having my own website and found I only really had two choices. I could either pay a web designer to build me one, which would have been very expensive, or I could try to build my own one using an online website builder. The problem with website builders is that you need to spend a lot of time creating your site and the end result is usually fairly basic.”
Edge Sports Sites has combined the need for high impact, dynamic, eye-catching sports websites with a low price point by creating flash websites that clients can choose from and have customized to include their own domain name, photos and text. Each website consists of 7 pages, which includes a photo gallery and contact page. Clients can name their pages to meet their individual needs. Clients also get their own email address linked to their domain name.
“My website, www.glyngolf.com, gives me everything I need at a low price and it was really easy to set-up”, added Glyn. “I visited www.edgesportssites.com and selected and ordered the website I liked. I was sent an email requesting information such as the domain name I wanted, the images I wanted displayed and what I wanted to call the pages etc. and they did the rest. They edited and added all my photos and even bought the domain name for me.”
Appreciating that athletes and coaches typically prefer spending time on their game than in front of a computer, Edge Sports Sites customizes the chosen website as part of the one-time customization fee. The client then pays a low monthly fee that includes hosting, photo gallery updates and a browser based text editor that allows the client to edit the text on their website whenever they choose.
Glyn explains, “The browser based text editor is really easy to use and allows me to upload my latest news and results from any computer with an internet connection, which is great when I’m on the road. I just log into my admin panel from the text editor link on www.edgesportssites.com and edit my text the same way as I would on any word processor.”
Edge Sports Sites was not only created for professional athletes seeking financial support or clothing/equipment deals. The websites have also been designed to meet the needs of amateurs, coaches/teachers, clubs/teams and those seeking sports scholarships.
“My parents spent a lot of time and money on creating, printing and sending information to American universities when seeking a golf scholarship for my sister. It would have been much easier to have had a website with all her information displayed. It would also have helped build a fan base for when she turned professional and was eligible to accept sponsorship” explained Glyn. “I also plan to use www.glyngolf.com to promote my golf instruction business in the future”.
