Staff.com sent me a great infographic with 7 stats about the internet. These are fun and interesting but they are also important for knowing your customers and understanding how you are received. Does your company do business in China? Did you know they have twice as many web users than us? Their top ecommerce site is still number one in the world. Have you seen one of the Google Street View cars around your neighborhood? They have photographed more than 5 Million miles of road! That is enough to go to the moon and back 10 times.
These are just few of the amazing stats about the internet. You may say, “Well, I don’t do business in China or Hollywood why should I be on YouTube or worry about Alibaba.com?” Our response is simple. If you regret delaying the purchase of a computer at all or a corporate website and would do it all again, then you’re fine. Not paying attention to mobile and social trends is the same as not building a website in the 1990s. Having a responsive website is just as crucial as having a website in general. You don’t have to be an early adopter but don’t worry… you’re not early anymore. Don’t worry if this all seems foreign to you. We train analog executives all the time.
