The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will launch a complete redesign of its website this fall.
The new SBA.gov will make it easier for small businesses, lending institutions and small business counselors to more quickly find the information they need through a simplified navigation structure. In addition, new features will allow users to tailor their experience to provide information that is specific to their needs and location.
The new website also will offer a dedicated lender area for banks and other financial institutions that partner with the SBA.
“Our goal as an agency is to get information, tools and services into the hands of small business owners more quickly so they can spend more time doing what they do best – creating the jobs that will drive our economic recovery,” SBA Administrator Karen Mills said in a press release. “Through a new, personalized and dynamic SBA.gov we will be better able to support job growth across the country.”
The website redesign is part of the SBA’s goal to create a dynamic online presence that delivers information to customers wherever they are online. To achieve this goal, the agency recently began using social media to reach constituents through a variety of online channels such as Facebook and Twitter.
