Did you know small businesses are some of the biggest employers of website professionals, such as designers and developers? Over 50% of small businesses now make use of these digital marketing experts to build or maintain their websites each year. This is according to research data from Evans Data, commissioned by GoDaddy.
As they begin to understand the importance of reaching and connecting with their customers online, small businesses are investing in growing their digital presence with the help of website designers and developers.
The retail, travel and health sectors have contributed to the growth of the web professional globally, with research showing that in the last year web developers and designers have seen client growth of at least 25%– a good indicator of the health of the small business sector itself.
Showing no sign of slowing down, it would seem that the Golden Era of web development and design is set to continue to rise, with over 50 percent of web professionals working remotely and using email and Skype to communicate with their clients; proof that geography no longer dictates who you do business with.
