We all know that almost overnight the internet has gone from a technical wonder to a business must.
Twenty years ago, a business opened a storefront, put ads in the local paper, joined a local networking organization and hoped the local customers needed what they had to offer. All that changes with the inception of the internet. A business is no longer dependent on its local customer base for its survival: it now has a worldwide audience for its goods and services. The internet has changed not only a business' customer base, but how a business communicate with its employees, and finds and manages the competition.
Technology -- and we mean the advances in communication and information technology -- has changed the face and the pace of business. As we all know, there is nothing permanent except change, so let us all board the technology train and make our business more efficient and profitable.
