One More Small Business Portal: Netscape
Is there really room for one more small business portal? Established competition from Microsoft, Excite and Dow Jones isn't enough to scare executives at Netscape.
The company has created 'Netscape Netbusiness' as a way to reach small businesses with less than 10 employees.
One way Netscape plans to support the site is through advertising. Netscape believes it will retain an edge with support from its parent, AOL, along with advertisers already on board, including Kinkos and ADP.
The site's features include the ability to build an online business card and participate in various communities.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
