According to a press release on the workshop, small businesses need a strong online strategy, because that’s where their customers are. While 78 percent of small businesses in the U.S. already have an online presence, only 53 percent have a company website, with 64 percent saying their website is optimized for mobile.
Cassidy will provide remarks to attendees about supporting the nation’s small business community.
