Topics and content at the Web.com Small Business Summit will focus on ways small business owners can achieve a successful Internet presence, including the elements of a great website, how to determine if their website is working for them, increasing traffic to their website and business, mobile marketing, and decoding how to efficiently market their business on Google, Facebook and Twitter.
