World Wide Web, Blog, Twitter, Web 2.0, E-Commerce, Web Browser, Instant Messaging, SEO… The list of technical jargon surrounding the Internet and its many applications seems endless and — to some — overwhelming. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be.
Whether we like it or not, the Internet is here to stay, and it has radically transformed how business is done. Information about every subject imaginable is now available at our fingertips within seconds. E-mail has replaced hard copy correspondence as the primary medium of communication. Consumers go online and research a company before they ever decide to buy its product or service.
Along with all of these technological advancements has come an entirely new language of “geek-speak.” Many business owners understand that they should embrace the Internet, but that is easier said than done — especially for those without a technical background.
It is very difficult to implement technology in your business if you don’t even understand what the terms mean. To address that problem, we have developed an Internet Technology Glossary. Our purpose for doing that is to educate business professionals on the most common terms in our industry by listing and explaining them in simple, easy-to-understand English. The way we see it, the more informed you are, the more easily you can decide which things make sense for your business.
When you’re ready to move forward with implementing the technology we’ll be here to help you take the next step.
