E-commerce is expanding at a time when our
nation has slipped into an economic recession.

Like any business, it is about getting the goods
and services delivered so that you have a satisfied
customer who will hopefully come back for more.

It is more expensive than ever to find and acquire
new customers for your online business. But did
you know you could lose yours to a problem that
can be dealt with effectively and inexpensively?

What if your new customer can't find your web site
or you are off-line just when you have launched an
expensive ad campaign?

What if your web site goes down in the middle of the night
without your knowledge?

It is a critical moment every time someone surfs to
your web site. If your web site is down, then all your
goodwill, hard work, investment, buzz, and brand name
recognition won't do you one bit of good.

A web site down scenario can cost your business web site a
lot of business. And that means money out of your pocket.

Even the very best of web servers will be down an
average of 7 to 10 days per year.

How many of your web site's visitors have been frustrated
by a "Page Not Found" or "Server is Busy" message and
turned away to go to your competitor while your web site
is down?

Even if it is just one customer, then it is one customer too many!

You can not monitor your web site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Yet, that is exactly what you need to do.

What is the solution?

Making use of one of the many "FREE Web Site Monitoring
Services"(FWSMS) that are available online. Let someone
help you by letting them monitor your web site for you.

Although there are many such services that operate for a
fee ranging from $20.00 monthly upwards to over $ 700.00
for a yearly plan, there are still a few that do it for free.

Here are just a couple of these free monitoring services:

InternetSeer Web Site Monitoring Service

that customers and visitors have access to your site 24
