It is such a thing that if anyone who died 100 years ago now wakes up by any miracle and experiences this, they would say, “This is not planet Earth; I’m probably reborn on another advanced planet!” Though this article demands a short description of the Internet, I won’t mention that because people already know what this is.

The Internet has taken a significant amount of the time we used to spend searching for information, entertaining ourselves, and even working for livelihood. One of my marketing teachers once told our class that when aandhis friends were students like us, they rushed to the library after any assignment their teachers gave to sort out the relevant books before others did. “That was quite a competition” he added and also said, “We had to read ten pages to write one sentence whereas, I wonder how easy this ‘information searching’ has been for you by dint of Internet!” Yes, this is true. The Internet is a new world. It’s a world of information with quick search and filter features powered by search engines like Google, Yahoo, etc. The power of the Internet has affected us all, with a significant thrust hitting the business sector.

The Internet has empowered general consumers to compare lots of product or service options as displayed on their computer monitor. Besides, discussion platforms like forums accelerate sharing opinions about products or services. So, today’s consumers are more enlightened about product or service-related information. This very ability of the consumers is paving the way for increased competition among companies operating in the same industry, and you know, where there is competition among companies, there will be price cuts and rebates and other incentives for the sales team and the general consumers. This competition is essential for preventing companies from doing monopoly business.
