Vendors and service providers will continually try to find unique ways to provide low-cost services to small businesses.

Other options include participation in an online marketplace. These mechanisms are roughly designed to simulate a real marketplace that will attract customers due to a shop-at-once mentality instead of surfing the Internet for different goods and services.
