Service websites feature information about useful activities which do
not necessarily produce tangible products. The Internet is the
ideal platform for the service industry; many services can be delivered
entirely online. There are often no physical products which
potential customers will want to try, and no shipping fees to drive up
costs. This broad category may be subdivided into government
services, professional services, and service trades. For
information about government services, browse through the
USA Services website.
Business services are also well-represented online. Company websites
are a great opportunity to showcase service offerings and project success
stories. For instance, Ceridian offers a range of payroll and human resources services,
and Enablx offers customer service
solutions for businesses.
Many professions have comprehensive directories tailored to them.
For example, local accountants may be found in the
CPA Directory, and local
attorneys can be located at FindLaw
or Martindale.com. For
healthcare services, the American Dental Association website can help in finding a local
dentist, while local physicians can be readily found in the
AMA DoctorFinder directory. Looking for home improvement
