Raising your internet business:  How to deliver successful web projects for your small business

Do you want your business to be among many businesses that thrive and expand due to their successful online business models? Many of these businesses derive the majority of their revenues from internet customers whom the businesses will never meet or from customers who find the businesses online and then visit the businesses’ physical premises. How do these businesses attract these customers? These opportunities are only possible if your business has an online presence.

How do I put my business online? What services should I offer? How will I accomplish all of this on a small business budget? You may have a vision of the website you would like to have, but as a small business owner you probably won’t have an IT department to which you can delegate this project responsibility. You can hire experts to help you, but you won’t know how to supervise them unless you first gain an understanding of the key subjects involved. How can you negotiate a good deal unless you already know the advantages and pitfalls of putting your business online?
