Lack of Internet Savvy Hurting Local Businesses In The Hunter

The Hunter Research Foundation has released their Business and Digital Technology survey for June 2014 with some interesting results that business owners in the Newcastle and Hunter region should take some time to understand.

While the uptake of technology for consumers is high, and businesses are using technology of others - they are paying scant attention to their own provision of internet functions with only 57% of companies having a dedicated website.

I've seen some of them - many of them are not working nearly as effectively as they need to and could be. 

Businesses have many good reasons to get updated to operate in the world as it is today. The world where there customers live and do business. 

To not be there is letting your business down. 

The Internet Not Just For Hipsters Under 40

While the numbers are depressing on the face of it, they reveal real potential for our local businesses to improve their use of  internet and communication technology. All they need is learning and that is definitely available.   

If you're not sure how to start and are a bit scared of computers or looking "silly" contact me  via the form on this page or give me a call on 0403 365 855 so we can look at your options to get in the race. 

And have some fun!
