One business owner I met recently had “invested” $2000 in a website complete with shopping cart and payments system. Unfortunately, 3 years on, the site still makes less than one sale every couple of months. And that’s purely through word of mouth. He doesnt feel his money was well spent. And he’s right.See this all the time. But is it the websites fault? Or the small businesses fault? Or the products fault?

Hard to say, depending on the circumstances it could be all three, or a combination of them.

Building a site is one thing. Helping a business owner suceed is another.
