According to SEO specialists BrightLocal, 75 percent of small business owners say that internet marketing is “very effective” or “effective” at attracting customers to their business.
This statistic, along with a lot of other interesting data, came from BrightLocal’s recent SMB Internet Marketing Survey 2014.
We also learned, from the survey, that small business owners plan to spend more on Internet marketing in 2015, that phone calls are the most valued success metric, and that most small companies handle their marketing in-house (although companies that use consultants/agencies are up 3 percent from the previous year).
