Are you where your customers are looking?

According to research from Webvisible and Nielsen:

63% of consumers and small business owners turn to the internet first for information about local companies 82% use search engines to do so

But…. only 44% of small businesses have a website
And…less than half spend less than 10% of their marketing budget online

So the question is….if you don't have a decent presence on the web and if you aren't doing what you can do to influence search engine placement — how many times a day are you being completely unnoticed?

What are you going to do about it?
