Recently received a magazine flyer that referenced a new survey by
CommerceNet and A.C. Nielson. The survey reveals what the business
community is using the WWW to do.


* 77% use it for gathering information
* 33% use it for publishing information
* 13% use it for selling products/services
* 44% use it for communicating internally
* 46% use it for researching competitors
* 54% use it for collaborating with others


This same flyer talked about the growing interest in using the WWW
for interactive public relations work. For example:

* Find clients (surfing Web sites)
* Put electronic press releases into the hands of key reporters
and news services
* Develop crucial ties (networking via newsgroups)
* Protect clients from information gleaning (i.e., electronic
research)
* Monitor newsgroups where thousands of useful ideas can be
found concerning professions, products and services.


I suspect frelance writers could do the same, if they have the
technology and the time to find their niche.
