Online Marketing Basics for Small Business

As you might remember not so long ago we had internet connections via a telephone line, we happily browsed our favorite websites waiting oftentimes a couple of minutes for images and long paragraphs with funky fonts and colors to load. Back in those days we did not have many options, for most people the idea of buying online seemed like a 70’s sci-fi movie.

Because of the high costs associated with creating a Online marketing website in the early ages of the internet, this was a luxury item of larger companies; it almost felt more as status symbol. Nowadays as you already know many things have changed.

Today your website is probably one of the best sales tools your business can have, here’s why
