“Penny Pincher’s Almanac” columnist Gene Marks tells BusinessWeek that for many small businesses, a web page can work just fine: that is, a page with basic, important information, such as contact information and maybe a photo or two.

His advice wouldn’t apply to a business that depends on online sales, concentrates its marketing materials online or provides customer service online. Those companies need the depth of a full-fledged web site.

Tip: Some companies, such as Synthasite ( and Weebly ( allow you to set up—free—simple web sites that are similar to web pages.
