The Current Reality

If you were to ask a local citizen "How much of what you spend online is local?"  
They say "Zero".  Here is the size of the problem we are dealing with!

 

  • Over 65% of local small business do not accept payments online and are unable to take advantage of digital solutions to grow their business

  • On the other hand, 56% of US adults are shopping online and e-commerce grows by an estimated $25 billion year after year

  • In the US, XP is the third most used operating system, limiting browser performance and adoption of digital commerce and cloud-based solutions

  • 82% of small business owners have said their main source of new leads is referrals, yet they are unable to keep pace with technology that would boost social visibility, create more leads, and allow consumers to easily find them

Small businesses will continue to be overwhelmed by the fast pace of the digital commerce and struggle to make ends meet, while our citizens continue pouring local dollars into Amazon and other global businesses.
