HvacTV.com recently surveyed 366 Web site visitors about what they used the Internet for on a regular basis. The results showed most contractors used the Web for a number of different activities, including research (28%) and training (20%). Other activities were far less popular: Only a little more than 2% used the Web to advertise or purchase business-related products. Communication (through e-mail, presumably) was used by more than 7% of respondents. The least popular activity? Entertainment, with only 1.64% of survey participants saying they use the Web to amuse themselves (at least when the boss is watching).
