MOJO Marketplace, an Endurance International Group (NASDAQ:EIGI) brand delivering themes, codes, plug-ins and scripts, today announced the launch of Professional Services. The new offering complements the digital goods already provided through the Marketplace and includes services for e-commerce, analytics, SEO, web design, development, and WordPress Services.
Professional Services provides ease of accessibility for less tech-savvy small business owners seeking to take advantage of everything MOJO Marketplace has to offer, making it truly a one-stop-shop. According to Brady Nord, one of MOJO’s founders, “We noticed that once customers bought a theme from MOJO Marketplace, they often didn’t know how to install it. Now, you can buy a theme and get it installed by a MOJO-trusted seller – all without leaving the website.”
Cost has long been a deterrent for small business owners looking for an online presence. According to a recent small business industry survey published by eMarketer, nearly 30% of small business owners that don’t have a website cite “cost to design/build” as the reason. MOJO’s new offering fills the need for a more economical solution, with services priced between $29-$149. And, with an average turnaround time of just 3 days, it’s a quick solution.
MOJO’s new Professional Services offering even has products developed just for WordPress, one of the most popular self-publishing platforms in the world. WordPress Services includes options for installing WordPress themes, adding Google Analytics to a site, and integrating WooCommerce into a WordPress theme.
“We are very excited about the launch of Professional Services,” said J.R. Farr, MOJO’s other founder. “It is great for our customers because they have access to relevant and useful services at a great price, and it is also great for our sellers because it provides them additional opportunities for income. It’s a win-win.”
Farr added, “As the needs of our customers evolve, we expect to expand the range of services available through Professional Services and to increase the number of website platforms compatible with our Professional Services offering.”

Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
