How Could A Recession Affect Online Businesses?

You cannot fail to have noticed that the worldwide recession is now in full flow. Everyone knows that recessions come and go, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with the effects it has while it’s 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 won’t 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.
