Unit 8: Business Online The Benefits of Clowning Around Marketing Their Products and Services Online Clowning Around is a party organising business. People, who want to set up a party, can contact Clowning around and as a result can use their service to hire balloons, party hats, could also supply people with fancy dress costumes, spoons, plates, party poppers etc. Now Clowning Around are ready to go online, with their own website advertising their business, and service, by offering all the above things mentioned. I will be discussing in this essay what the benefits are of trading online.
