You cannot fail to have noticed that the worldwide recession is now in full flow. Everyone knows that recessions come and go, but that doesnt make it any easier to deal with the effects it has while its here. But while we all watch bricks and mortar businesses struggling to cope and trying not to go under, what has happened to the internet businesses? In terms of the recession itself it is still early days, so we wont know the full effects until some time in the future. But there is every reason for us to suspect that online businesses will suffer less than offline ones. This is mainly because people expect more of a bargain online.
