EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Internet: Your Business Partner
Energize Your Business With the Internet

Small businesses in rural areas face many challenges including population migration, changes in market forces, and the digital divide. In order for rural small businesses to compete, they must expand their target market. The goal of this pilot program is to help small businesses in rural areas survive and thrive. In April 2004, Extension e-Commerce professionals and local business owners from eight states and Canada came together in the Four Corners region to provide e-Commerce education to a selected group of businesses and Extension faculty.
