CANADA FALLS BEHIND IN SMALL BUSINESS WEBSITES

A recent survey conducted by RedShift Research indicated some surprising facts about very small Canadian businesses and their attitudes towards having a website. Businesses with five or fewer employees just aren't dreaming as big as their counterparts in other parts of the world.

Here are the key findings:

  • 41% felt their business was too small to warrant a website
  • 59% didn't have a website
  • Only 33% planned to develop a website compared to 55% globally
  • 54% with no website plans felt their business would be stangant or shrink

    As for those small businesses planning to have a website:

  • 83% anticipated business growth over the coming five years
  • 45% believed it would expand their local customer base
  • 23% believed they would expand nationally
  • 16% believed they would enter the international market

    And for those small Canadian business who already have a website?

  • 77% felt they had a competitive advantage over their competitors without a website
  • 54% said their business grew after their website went up

    No matter what size your business is, a website can lead to more ambitious business plans, higher growth and better customer outreach.
