Incredible statistics, maybe, but business ownership and how you communicate with your potential customers has evolved like never before. The internet still very much in its infancy has revolutionised not only how we communicate, but how we do business.
Never before has it been possible to interact with thousands of people by the click of a mouse. Whether you are advertising a deli’s special sauce, or a beauty salon’s latest treatment, it can all be done without having to get out of your chair.
Not only that, but if you provide a good reliable service, you can reap the rewards in the form of online reviews in the same time as it takes to make a cup of coffee. Obviously this means businesses are under the microscope in a whole new way, but if you have a plan and are willing to make it happen, the rewards of building a customer base through the internet are there, and that success is still down to the simple adage of providing a good quality service at a reasonable price.
