It’s all about competitive advantage. As a small business, you gain an edge when you can provide the speed, consistency and quality of service that consumers expect from big businesses. These days consumer expectations are high and you can stand out from other businesses online with an interactive web site, e-commerce options and high speed access.
Broadband means high speed Internet. If you are selling online, a site that operates quickly when processing transactions and forms can mean the difference in making the sale. SCORE believes small businesses can increase sales, profits and success online with the help of broadband.
March 16th, the FCC released The National Broadband Plan. On April 7th, SCORE launches a nationwide partnership to develop community workshops, online training and tools to help small businesses compete in the global economy online.
