BT Business recently released the results of a survey of small and mid-sized British businesses. Lots of interesting data and findings, including:
75% of UK small businesses believe the economy will see an upturn in 2010
35% predict an improvement by January 2010
45% say their business operates for the better as a result of the downturn
41% believe small businesses will innovate and diversify to create new industries as the UK emerges from the downturn
A bit orthogonal to our topic, we often get questions about social media press releases. The press release for this study is an excellent example. It has the key data, quotes, videos and contact information in one place and organized to make it very easy to write about the study.
