Another reason that small businesses stay small is that they try to do it themselves. And the fact is that they don’t know what they are doing and they don’t have the time. This often applies to Social Media and Internet Marketing in general.
Businesses employing less then 10 people make less than £1,000 pa on the internet (on average). Businesses employing 11 to 50 make an average of £179,000 pa.
I wonder… Could this be anything to do with the fact that businesses who employ 10+ people usually outsource their Marketing to someone who knows what they are doing and businesses employing 1 to 10 people try to do it themselves?
