New techniques of marketing you business continue coming out, so too do new tools to help you keep control of things and turn into more productive.

If your point is full because you are busy running your business, then the prospect of having to continuously learn new things, judge them all and integrate the best into you business can be alarming.

Then there is the concern that your point will be eaten up and you will turn into a slave to technology. It is not a unfounded fear because technology can and does drive us all mad at one point or another.

So how do you ensure that you get the maximum out of the web if you’re in business?

I’d say that the answer is to first look at what your business needs. Being objective can be hard so if you need to, seek trusted outside perspectives ito help you get a cleaer picture.

As the image of what your business needs and how it may work if all of your weaknesses became strengths becomes clearer you can begin to write you refreshed business vision.

Take your vision and use the web to research examples of excellence in other firms. Learn from each one of them and aim to be better.

Once you know what you desire your business to be and feel you may then follow the lead of your most respected competitors.

Look at how they engage the market through their online presence and work backwards. Look at what they do and how they do it. What does it for you? Which areas do you actually think would work well for your business?

Then finally look at the channels and the range of media they operate with.

Pretty shortly you would have identified the areas that you will need to find out more about and develop expertise in. You’ll have a vision and most importantly you won’t get lost in technology because you’ll be using it to meet your aims.

It will not be your master; you will be its master!
