  1. Interesting and informative information. Good to know.

    I just wanted to share some piece of information which I came across while I was looking to expand and scale up my business. There is this business profitability and scalability calculator which is there on this site Seo Traffic Spider and its really cool. When you enter the data in it in terms of the amount and time you are spending on promoting your website, it calculates the total resources in terms of cost you are accruing for your website promotion.

    The best I like about it is that after calculating the result, it gives you a customized less expensive solution based on your data and its really interesting. You can try out this tool and see the results for yourself.
