In a new survey conducted by Wakefield Research, 70% of entrepreneurs who started an online business in the last year found customer acquisition to be the biggest challenge. 80% of entrepreneurs reported “extreme difficulty” in growing their customer base, and one in four said completing a Rubik’s cube blindfolded is easier than acquiring 10 new customers. With over 60% guesstimating it would cost over $2,000 to scale their business through SEO and 45% admitting they don’t know what SEO stands for. In addressing this data and with Weebly 4, small business owners will have the ability to engage, retain, and grow their customer base through a simplified, smart, all-in-one solution.
