Assuresoft is offering to upgrade all the IFA websites created through its IFA Window service free of charge to improve its online presence.

The company says over 1,000 websites have been created using IFA Window and they will be upgraded automatically.

IFA Window provides intermediaries with websites and it will offer a bigger menu of free options to users.

Advisers can choose a site with the level of service most suitable for them and their clients.

The new options include a choice of domain names, more than 40 design templates, free marketing support, interactive tools and optional advertising banners. Also available are a new online legal service and an ethical and offshore service.

Users also get free membership to IFA Promotion.

Assuresoft sales and marketing director Nicola Mitchell says: “By offering a new range of advanced, free website service options, we are giving IFAs much greater flexibility to create an online presence that suits the needs of their clients and the practice itself.

“We are also aiming to help intermediaries promote their website through free marketing support.”
