Doug is right here, businesses buy solutions to business problems. Look around, small business do not have the money for IT departments, but they do for time saving solutions. Find any growing small business, and the story is usually the same. the owner works excessively long hours. Promise to save them an hour or more a week by automating something and you've got a sale, odds are the same solution will appeal to the next small business you approach too.
