The Illinois Valley Area Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development (IVAC) will hold their Business Breakfast Seminar on Wednesday, April 11th @ 7:15 a.m. at Mario’s Maples in Peru. The focus of the seminar will be “E-Commerce Platforms/ Using Technology to Market Your Business”.
Small businesses and entrepreneurs are rushing to the Internet to do business and reach new markets. While e-commerce is used for advertising, business-to-consumer and business-to-business transactions, users may encounter several challenges. Over the years, a decrease in the prices for software and hosting services has reduced the barriers to entry in the online environment. Even the smallest of businesses can now have a presence on the web and conduct commerce. Selling online, however, is not without its perils. Blindly diving headfirst into the Internet without a complete understanding of technical, managerial, and competitive challenges may result in stressed operations.
