I have a theory that to do Business and make money (and I AM assuming that those of you in business WANT to make money) you need to ACTUALLY BE "in business", 100%.

My family had a very successful business many years ago, we all worked hard and were all very happy, we all made money. BUT if you really want to be in business you have to BE in business. We worked on Holidays - all of them, even if just for a few hours. At least one member of the family was there at all times. If not, even the most trusted employee will NOT look out for your best interest and you willoosese something.

We moved to the Milton area just about a year ago and there is one thing about the 'businesses' here that really makes Milton look like a 'one horse' town and makes business owners look like they REALLY could not care less whether we do business with them or not! And therefore makes us not to do business with you.

NOBODY HAS A WEB SITE. HOW YOU DO BUSINESS AND REACH POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS WITHOUT A WEB SITE????

For YEARS now whenever we are looking to purchase something or find a vendor for something we ALWAYS lookInternetinternet FIRST. We have not lived in Milton for the past 50 years...we don't know that "Joe" down the road is a good plumber; or that"Nancy" makes good wedding cakes! We don't even know "Joe" or "Nancy" or have a hint WHERE their road is. Now "Joe" or "Nancy" may not care, they may have enough business, but that makes you look VERY unprofessional. It is not very friendly, or helpful or business like to new people moving in and we certainly cannot be the only new people in town. And we are not young people that only know the computer, we are in our late 50's, but have accepted that the Internet is just how the world operates - have you? PLEASE local businesses JOIN the 21st Century

Or give http://www.bizbrag.com a try. It's much easier than building your own web page and arguably works better.
