Technology now gives your small business access to a world economy and new markets far beyond your doorstep. Unfortunately, the same holds true for your competitors, who want nothing more than to steal your customers, and will use every resource available to do so. Given the large number of small businesses that will be out of business before their fifth anniversary, you want to arm your business with every advantage you can -- right from the start. While there are many helpful resources out there for small businesses, the internet offers some of the best. Here are my pick of the eight best website resources to grow your small business.

8. SCORE is a nonprofit organization that provides expert business counseling to small business owners. SCORE's website provides online counseling, and offers great e-mail newsletters. What I like best about their newsletter program is, it allows you to select which level of information that you want. From operations to financing and expansion plans, SCORE has a vast database of experts to assist your small business.
