right now is an excellent time to start a new venture online."
According to the company, many consumers are turning to the web for savings than ever before in an attempt to cut costs.

"Whether they are starting a nail salon, website design company, car detailing service, lawn mowing service, accounting service, dog grooming service, or anything in between, having a website marketing their service is very important," suggested Field. "The tools to easily setup a website are all there. Hopefully without any upfront costs, an individual who might not have been able to get started with their own website, now can."
