As a follow-on to a little rant I did on small business owners who don’t want to embrace the web, I found some really good statistics about trends in internet usage for the United States. Just so I’m prepared for the next time someone asks me to make their phone ring with new customers.
According to the Internet World Stats website:
United States Internet Usage: In 2010 was 77.3% of the population and is continuing to rise.
Washington State Internet Usage (where I am): In 2010 was 85.7% of the population.
So if you don’t have a website, or if you are reluctant to use email to communicate with your prospective clients – you are missing out a LOT of people, and the number of people without internet access is growing smaller and smaller each year.Jill
