Every business should have an online presence. However, many businesses forgot Internet advertising in favor of conventional media.

Many small businesses and sole proprietorships target customers in a limited geographic area and offer limited shipping services, if any.

Additionally, sole proprietors have very limited marketing budgets. However, web traffic is important for smaller businesses that service local markets, as it will serve as a research point.

Erik: It looks good. Please check out my site www.EgoSoleTrader.com and www.EgoNetCast.com for examples of sites using the Squarespace platform. I want to talk more with you about Japan at some point in time.

Erik: Please send me the link to your blogs on Tokyo and Japan. Do you like sushi and green tea?

I love sushi! :-)

And I love Japan, the mixture of classic and modern if perfect!

Erik: It is a matter of personal taste. I have seen nice themes by WooThemes. Have you checked out Squarespace's web site platform?

Hi Martin.

I have tweaked a bit the FreshLife Theme designed by Theme Junkie on Fill My Money Box.com

I have removed the featured posts (they look so bad in black) and a couple of things more.

What do you think now? :-)

I use Spectrum by WooThemes for my niche blog of Tokyo and Japan.

I found WooThemes a little bit..how I can say...outdated.

I have found FreshLife Theme designed by Theme Junkie more professional than FreshNews by WooThemes.

I use Daily Theme by Theme Junkie for a business blog.

And SmartBlog for my NPI blog.

I guess, as you said, it's a matter of personal taste.

And it really depends on the size of the website we talk about.

Erik: To pull the author's leg a bit, the readers could have a "beef with" the FreshLife Theme designed by Theme Junkie on Fill My Money Box. Especially when you read Molly Pearce's advice: "A well-designed website full of useful content is key to motivating any favorable decisions on the part of the customer."

Before you jump the gun... ;) I have a very simple and clean business site, that some people could say looks a tad blend.

Hi Martin,

actually I have just changed the theme during this weekend, and I really thought it looks better, right now.

Before that, I had FreshNews by WooThemes.

What do you think?
