Internet Entreprenuership and help for small businesses

The World Wide Web or Internet is a wonderful invention, one I consider the invention of the century made more useful by its inventor, Sir Tim Berners-Lee insistence that it be free. When I first started using it, especially the search the Web function for my real work research, it was practically useless, giving me all kinds of irrelevant links. Now with search engines like Google, you can be quite sure that what you are looking for will be on the first few pages of the SERP (Search Engine Result Page). With introduction of specialized search engines like Google Scholar and Technorati blog search engine and blog ranking website, it is getting even better. Plus the possibility of Internet Entrepreneurship which can be in many forms.

Whatever form Internet Entrepreneurship is in, the first thing you need is a website. You need one which is attractive to visitors (although this can be subjective as some prefer flashy website full of graphics and perhaps even animated images and sound, but I prefer something plain, clean-cut an simple like my main blog Blogger Tips and Tricks which uses a template created to be considerate to visitors with small screen (small screen will likely be with us for a long time with the popularity of laptop computers and other mobile devices). See Best template for my blog.

Many aspiring Internet entrepreneur do not have the skills to built a website suitable for Internet commerce or e-commerce. This is where service providers like iWebImage Inc. can help. Their website says they can help small businesses with limited budget with designing, building, and maintaining their website, create necessary tools like "Contact us" form, submitting your website to search engines and directories, website optimization, website hosting and maintenance, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), even create a free Favicon plus do a Google sitemap for your website. All these are important for bringing traffic to your website, and KEEPING THEM, which is very important for a website without visitors is useless. You can check what features they offer at iWebImage features. If you have any questions, you can always refer to iWebImage FAQ (Frequently asked questions).
