What is the role of Internet technology in business?
In our computerized time, it is difficult to overestimate the role of Internet technologies in business development, even the smallest. Agree that it is much more convenient to use electronic money transfer systems, advertising on a variety of social platforms and to train staff through electronic refresher courses than to waste time and tangible assets on manual or semi-automatic processing of product promotion and personnel training tasks.

What will happen if a resident, for example, of the 30s of the 20th century, demonstrates the modern capabilities of the Internet with its numerous payment platforms, remote training, computer modeling? To say that he will be shocked is just the same as not saying anything. Let us consider in more detail the role of such services that are often found in the electronic world for business (and not only), such as Internet banking (including electronic payments for services and goods), advertising in social networks and remote training. It would seem that you can tell about these things? Not so little has been written about them, but the topic is not exhausted, the bottom is still not visible. In the world of electrons walking along wires, there are many, many interesting and cognitive things that can be useful to everyone. Internet banking and related services (payment of various bills, online stores, etc.) save people a lot of time. Agree that it is much better to use an electronic wallet or an ATM to pay, for example, housing and communal services, than to stand in a queue, waste time, and sometimes nerves. Although, it is worth noting that modern queuing facilities, by issuing coupons, quite effectively facilitate the task. Advertising on social networks for quite a long time is a very effective tool for promoting products and services. Equally effectively such a service can be used by both ordinary people and large companies. Often, this way of making itself known for many people and organizations becomes the mainstream, and traditional PR methods in some areas of goods and services are slowly but surely losing ground. What can be said about remote learning? At the moment it is difficult to imagine that this type of training will be able to completely replace a full-fledged education in any specialty, but for the purposes of advanced training or obtaining specific, applied knowledge and skills, it is suitable, if not ideal, then very close to it. Modern video courses cover quite significant areas of applied knowledge. Most often, these unique knowledge bases are devoted to the Internet and all that is associated with it directly or indirectly. Agree that it would be great to learn, for example, to create beautiful websites (online stores, business cards, resume websites) that would attract attention, show your professional level. If you have your own business, the functional and bright page of the online store will be a great tool to attract customers and, as a result, increase profits. If you are a professional in your field, a gold worker, then the presence of a site resume will complement your image of a successful person and will be an additional advantage in finding employment. In the modern world without Internet technologies – nowhere, so learn and be always on the crest of a wave!
