The U.S. government is making a concerted effort to assist small businesses across the country by providing them with online tools to help run their business. This push to online acknowledges the fact that people are using and influenced by the World Wide Web and social media more and more. With small businesses looking to get advice and gain an edge by any means necessary, the Internet serves as a simple and effective outlet to receive and learn information.
