Default Reaching Local Customers With Online Sales

Here is an article on trying to decide if you should market online locally.

"If you are already in business and you are thinking of promoting your products or services online, one of the first questions you have to ask yourself is "Do I have a product I can sell online?" This question is at the very heart of the decision whether or not to try online marketing."

I attended a seminar yesterday and the theme was "online marketing". It tackled about how to sell online and make money. The speaker said, going to online marketing can be done anytime. It is easy and can be done also at home. He also emphasized that going to Online Marketing the first thing you must have products or services that can attract customers through online. Moreover, social media and blog sites could help in promoting your product.

Sometimes we don't know if our product fits online marketing, and if it can be sold online. But thanks for sharing the article, its really worth reading and gives the idea if we do fit in online marketing.
