Abstract: Designing smart business models to be used as a solid step in starting a business has become an important issue in today's world of e-commerce. Marketing networked companies also, as a new and web-based business, are in dire need of designing such a model for their success. The aim of this study was to identify the components of this model. To understand the system and gather those in dire need of information to define the various elements of the business model, we have used the methodology of soft systems. In this method, we will provide a picture of the status quo, as well as a general definition of the optimal system, based on which we will define the blocks of the business model. Our reference model for designing business model of marketing networked companies is 'ontology' business model.
