-- Web.com to recognize and celebrate the iconic moments that define the small business journey
-- One Grand Prize winner to receive an expense-paid trip to 42nd biennial golf tournament in Europe
-- Web.com partners with PGA golfer Jim Furyk to promote “Tell Us Your Big Moment” campaign
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Web.com (Nasdaq:WEB), the marketing partner for businesses wanting to connect with more customers and grow, today announced the launch of “What’s Your Moment Contest,” a website and online photo-submission competition to celebrate the milestones that define the journey of a small business owner.
The contest winner will receive an expense-paid trip to watch the United States’ best professional golfers compete against their European counterparts in the suburbs of Paris at one of the sport’s most prestigious biennial tournaments.
“We created this contest to support Web.com’s mission of helping small businesses achieve their potential, and because the journey of the small-business owner and professional golfer are similar,” said David Brown, chairman, CEO and president of Web.com. “Often, they start their adventures alone, but over time the most successful ones learn to surround themselves with the right teams and tools to excel at their professions.”
Web.com partnered with PGA TOUR Golfer Jim Furyk to promote the “What’s Your Moment” campaign. Furyk is on the verge of another significant moment in his career as the 2018 U.S. Ryder Cup team captain competing in France in September.
Celebrating Each Moment
Throughout the contest window of July 30 through Aug. 20, Web.com will accept photo submissions that mark the iconic milestones of a small businesses owner, such as a grand opening, launching a new product or winning a new customer.
When considering professionals on the PGA TOUR known for driving through to their potential, Furyk emerged as a natural choice to help promote the campaign. As a recognized leader on the PGA Tour for two decades, Furyk is famous for his consistent work ethic and results.
“Jim is both a leader in the sport of golf and the community. He’s also the embodiment of Web.com’s mission. His career exemplifies the drive and dedication that small businesses need to grind through tough conditions and fulfill their potential,” added Brown.
Web.com captured original documentary-style video from exclusive interviews with Furyk, which is available via long-form video and a series of nine short videos as part of the campaign. Besides providing personal insights into the biggest moments of his career, Furyk details the history of his partnership with Web and illuminates some milestones shared over the years.
Furyk, who won a Major tournament, a FedEx Cup, and holds the record for the lowest score ever shot on the PGA TOUR, understands the rigorous training and discipline that go into a career of defining moments.
“I’ve been fortunate to have some big moments in my career. I appreciate what Web.com is doing with this campaign because the hard work and sacrifices of the individual and the team that surrounds him or her often go unrecognized,” said Jim Furyk.
Web.com has been a sponsor of Furyk since 2013 and worked with the Furyk family to design and build the Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation website. Web.com will also work with the renowned golfer on the redesign of the JimFuryk.com website.
“The further you go on your journey, the more you realize that you need partners to help guide you through your biggest moments. I know that the Web.com team can play that role for those looking to fulfill their potential,” Furyk added.
