  1. I was part of the family business for the last several years. My dad never embraced technology other than e-mail (his database software was Q&A!). When the recession hit the business really suffered. I pushed for him to build a web presence, but nope. I built my own site for my region and sales tripled, but it was too late. He went out of business, and I had no way to service my accounts. Small biz needs to get with it. It’s CHEAP to market on the web and it’s effective even in a niche.
