Small businesses expect to invest in Web design, SEO and e-mail this year

Published on .

New York—Despite the slumping economy, most small businesses do not anticipate a decline in revenue over the next year, and many expect to make additional investments in Web site design, SEO and e-mail marketing, according to Register.com’s newly released “Small Business Survey.”

Register.com conducted the online survey over a three-week period from April 28 to May 16, polling 800 small businesses.

When asked which areas of technology they are mostly likely to invest in, the top three answers were: Web site design (53%), SEO (43%) and e-mail marketing (41%).

Seventy percent of those polled said they do not expect Web revenue to decline this year despite the struggling economy.
