Small business e-commerce can deliver sales growth

Even during these challenging economic times there is one thing that is still going up: online sales. But as more and more consumers and businesses are making purchases online there is one disturbing statistic that I’ve heard recently: half of small businesses still don’t have a website. Unbelievable.

Today I interviewed Brain Trust member Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, on my radio program, The Small Business Advocate Show, and we discussed the many reasons that every business should have a presence online, even if only to let prospects know what you sell as they shop around in cyberspace.

At a time when all businesses are trying to maximize every sales opportunity, listen to what Patrick and I had to say about ways to help with your small business’ online strategy. Oh, and if you have a comment or something to add, give it your best shot in the comments section.
