Importance of the online web
The internet, a modern day wonder that we would struggle to live without. We can send and receive mail in an instant, stay in touch with loved ones over a distance and most importantly, gain access to one of the world’s richest sources of information. More than one in ten people have uploaded video online, 20 million Facebook apps installed every day and more than 3,000 images up loaded every minute. The internet is also the perfect medium for the business world. Marketing and even running a business online is key to success.
“Before you can start with your website it is important to know what the purpose is. Be clear on that. Do research to determine whether there is a market for what you want to do. Do you want to launch a online business, an info page for your business or online services? It is crucial that every business do have a website to market themselves with one of the best marketing tools available today but you need to know the purpose and goal of the site” says Antonie Potgieter, owner and web designer of Rusties.
