picture-1In a recent survey co-sponsored by Network Solutions, LLC and the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, researchers not only concluded that having a serviceable website is key to the success of small businesses but that doing so can improve their competitiveness in the marketplace.

The summary of the survey states: “Assuming that a venture capitalist is not going to suddenly appear and shore up most small businesses, a sound investment a small business can make is in ramping up its Internet business solutions, or so it would seem based on the experiences of those small businesses who have done it. This means more than just building a website, but making a commitment to online advertising, allowing customers to view and order products online, providing email customer service and self-service options to customers.”
