Here is a great short video that demonstrates how easy it is to create really slick public facing web site in the upcoming version of Office 365.

I think that the improvements to this aspect of Office 365 are going to bring big dividends for Microsoft. I believe a significant amount of businesses are going to take advantage of all the options and features that are available in the public facing web site with the upcoming version of Office 365 when it becomes available soon. Also, if I was an IT reseller looking for an opportunity with Office 365, I’d suggest you look closely at what services you can offer around the new features Office 365 bring to the table with the public facing web site at the very least.
