Internet just keeps on growing thanks to small businesses
This year has been the strongest ever for Internet growth. This growth has been largely due to small businesses realising that the web can deliver business on a scale unheard of in the bricks and mortar world.
According to analyst Netcraft 17.5 million web sites have been added to the web this year. This growth beats that recorded in the peak of the dot com boom in 2000 by 1.5 million. Currently there are 74,409,971 websites worldwide.
The Business Forum has been urging retailers in Brighton & Hove to grasp the opportunities offered by the web and has recently run an event to highlight some of the benefits. For more information or to register your interest in attending a future event on ecommerce please contact Soozie Campbell at email@example.com.
