Expert Author Karen Christine Scharf

Over a decade ago, when the internet was in its infancy, many businesses were skeptical as to how the web would have any effect at all on their ability to market. Many people compared it to failed ventures of the past and mostly chalked it up to a fad. But chances are, by now those same marketers and businesses have embraced the internet and consider it normal function of doing business today.
Yet, even now, some small business owners fail to see how the internet can help them. They know that websites are as prominent as billboards on the highway, but they do not understand exactly how to manage the world of e-commerce and marketing. They know what a website is, they might even have one, yet they aren't really seeing the results they thought that they would.
The main reason small businesses fail on the internet is because they do not use their website and the internet to its full advantage. Your business website is more than just a stagnant advertisement. It is a dynamic entity that can be used in countless ways to market your product and services and create relationships and dialogues with your prospects and customers.

A pURL can be a great way to gather information about customers. With personalized URL marketing, you will access to detailed information in regards to which particular customers viewed their personalized websites, which pages they visited, how long they stayed on their website, what they purchased, and more.
