The Growing Importance of the Internet

The internet is having an increasing important influence on business in the UK and abroad. Over the last 20 years, the internet has grown from being a portal of information to becoming a source of incredible profit for businesses across the world.

Thousands of major firms are now recording impressive profits online, as well through their stores. Some of the world’s most successful businesses, such as Amazon, Facebook, Google and eBay are doing so solely through the use of the internet.

The internet allows customers to pay for items using their debit or credit card and have it delivered to their front door. This is not only more convenient for many British customers, but also opens the doors for profit from overseas buyers.

This trend has resulted in business IT support becoming more crucial than ever. In years gone by, an IT malfunction may have meant that productivity was slowed for a few hours. Now it could potentially result in thousands of pounds being lost by a business; such is the importance of a well-functioning website in this day and age.

In order to start a business, entrepreneurs no longer to invest in expensive commercial property, or even step foot outside their house in order to make serious amounts of cash. A lot of customers have begun purchasing items online using their smartphones.

Many large businesses now employ staff specifically for the maintenance of their website. Others will invest thousands of pounds ensuring that their website is visible in search engines and that it is being populated with entertaining content.

It remains unknown how important the internet could potentially become in the coming years. Some commentators have predicted the death of the high street altogether.

Whatever the future holds for the world wide web, many businesses could certainly benefit from having a presence online – no matter what their size.

    “Some commentators have predicted the death of the high street altogether.” This seems almost impossible in the days when everything (payments, social media, news, emails, gaming) is internet based. Ok, the internet will die. But it will be replaced with next gen internet.
