Recently over at Small Business Trends I asked the community to participate in a survey conducted by Working Solo. The survey was completed by 647 small businesses, and one of the questions asked was: what do you buy online? Here are the results:
I wasn’t surprised by over 90% buying books and other low-cost media online. I wasn’t even surprised that nearly 86% bank online and pay bills.
But I was surprised that almost 2% don’t buy anything online. These days that is a rarity.
The survey was of small businesses ranging from solo business owners with no employees, all the way up to businesses with 20 or more employees. Revenue size was under $100,000 to over $1 Million annually,
The survey was about business insurance, and was sponsored by TechInsurance Group, LLC, America’s leading online provider of insurance to IT businesses and a wide range of solo professionals — www.techinsurance.com and www.businessinsurancenow.com.
