Blogs are my thing, I love them. All kinds of blogs. The Intuit Small Business Blog in particular has remained a favorite on my Google Reader for years; they post great stuff about small business; marketing tools, tips, and (my favorite) smart infographics. Below I've listed my three most favorite Intuit infographics about small business.
Perhaps you remember my previous post about the JOBS act; perhaps you were, like myself, slightly confused by the fancy formal speech in the legislation. This infographic illustrates the high points of the bill and why we, folks who love and care about small business and our economy, should care about it. And even if you don't care about the bill or the economy (shame on you) you can still marvel at the pretty typography and such.
This infographic tells the story of how quickly small businesses are adopting the web and social media. We take for granted how new this technology is, that nearly 2 years ago most small businesses didn't worry about analytics tools and social media.
We all know small business owners can use smartphones, but this infographic breaks down how and why. It's packed with statistics and insights like, "The number one reason small businesses employ mobile apps is for a competitive advantage," or "28% of small businesses say they could not survive without mobile apps."
