Local business internet use survey


Published on

Survey for business owners on their use of the internet and social media. I would love to see your responses but you can also use this as a self check for your business to see where your use of the internet and online tools stands. May be time to upskill.

If you'd like to send me your response just scan your answers and email to me. Or message me if you would like me to do this with you personally over the phone or skype. That could be the most simple way for you.

I'm interested in the responses of current practices but also on the subjective reasons that are getting in the way of businesses making use of the powerful resources online that can boost productivity, give business more reach and increase sales and profits for these hardworking people.
