Default HP Survey: 10% of Small Business Marketing Plans Include Blogs

Found at Anita's Small Business Trends blog:

HP Survey: 10% of Small Business Marketing Plans Include Blogs

Of course, no actual count of business blogs today exists. But the number in the HP survey, suggesting how many business owners' marketing plans and future plans include blogs, is quite interesting, especially when you compare the numbers with those whose plans include websites. When you consider that not quite half of the small businesses surveyed even have websites, the fact that 10% are including plans for blogs is pretty remarkable.

I was hesitant to jump into blogging but thanks to you great people here, I did. And I am glad I did. My blogging audience grows fast every day and it drives lots of traffic to my website!

Any of you out there that are thinking of a blog...Do It!

Talking Surprising -- and Surprisingly Good -- Blogging Statistics

I was quite surprised by the number of businesses considering blogs.

The ratio is roughly 1 in 4 of those with websites. That is, 1 in 4 today who plan on websites are considering blogs, too.

And as the number of websites rises a few years from now, the ratio remains roughly 1 in 4.

So it seems that one-quarter of small businesses with an Internet presence recognize the role blogs play in their overall Web strategies. Not bad, I'd say, for something that didn't even have a place in the business community's consciousness two years ago.
