A recent Poll of Canadian Small Businesses indicated that only 46% of Small Businesses have a dedicated website and only 48% of those sell their products or services through their websites.
I know... it's hard to believe, but it is the truth and no amount of denial will change the fact that Canadian businesses need to pull up their trousers, tighten up their belts and get on board. The Internet has been changing the way we do business for years. Now, don't worry! It's not too late. If my mother at 73 years old can get on her iPad make her first online purchase, and sign up for a Twitter account, then I'm confident that you – the small business owner – can do this online business thing like a pro, in no time.
According to the research there are two main reasons for these surprising statistics about small and medium sized business... and we completely understand both challenges.
The First Challenge: 'Just Keeping Up'
Just keeping up with Internet technology is often perceived as a huge challenge. Small and medium sized businesses are often run by brilliant entrepreneurs, but that doesn't mean that they understand everything about internet technology. Owner-operators often feel that keeping up-to-date with the speed of technology is among their greatest challenges.
