FAYETTEVILLE, AR, December 22, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Kharis Media LLC, an American media and publishing company based in Bentonville, Arkansas, has just launched a sleek and responsible website builder priced competitively to help people from developing economies in Africa and Asia move their businesses and brands online. The platform called Kharis Brand, uses clean and modern website templates that are highly streamlined to reduce the learning curve for people without coding experience.
According to the African partner, Mr. Gideon Umesiri, CEO of Umekharis Ltd, "the focus on developing economies makes sense to us because of the opportunity for maximum impact." He continued, "In addition, Africa is increasingly being seen by investors and analyst as the region to watch for the next big economic transformation. So, it only makes sense for us to invest in helping transition many businesses and brands online for global visibility and influence" Many analysts tend agree to be bullish on the future of the African economic bloc. For example, in discussing the rise of Africa and the potential for investment and life-improvement opportunities, Colin Coleman, head of investment banking for sub-Saharan Africa at Goldman Sachs, has this to say, 'This is going to be a continent moving from a low base into a much higher form of consumer services, much better banking, technology, and telecommunications infrastructure. And the billion people that occupy Africa are going to see tremendous improvements in their lives.'
Unlike other website builders based on drag-and-drop technology, KharisBrand.com is built on modern ready-made stripes and polydoms. The result is that the platform is so simple and user-friendly that almost anyone can build a stunning website in a matter of minutes. According to Mr. Gideon, "Another distinctive of the Kharis Brand platform is that it includes ecommerce and blogging feature for all users. For example, to get similar ecommerce capability from other platforms, users will have to pay, on average, a minimum of $30 per month. However, on Kharis Brand platform, every user gets equal access to all features, including ecommerce, unlimited web pages, free hosting, and customized business emails, priced affordably at about $8 per month. Imagine the competitive advantage this provides to lots of African and Asian professionals, businesses, traders, artisans such as upholstery makers, to have a strong online presence and sell to the world literarily." Mr. Gideon noted that from the start, affordability and global capability to send and receive payment for goods and services were important considerations for launching Kharis Brand. Payments are processed on the platform using Stripe, a global payment gateway. Kharis Brand sites are also hosted in the United States on the cloud servers of Google and Amazon, giving users peace of mind in terms of security and consistent up-time.
Similar to other website builders, it is free to design your own website, and pay only if you are happy with your site or when you are ready to publish.
Kharis Media USA is a full media and publishing house located in Bentonville, Arkansas, the hometown of Walmart Inc. Kharis Media USA is the parent company of Kharis Brand, Kharis Publishing, and Kharis Domain.
