Small businesses are the lifeblood of our local communities and the engine room of the economic recovery.

That’s the clear message of this unique and beautiful infographic, put together by combining results from our pre-Christmas survey of 648 ShopKeep POS retailers with U.S. Census Data.

We are proud to serve this amazing community of small businesses and support them as they drive our national growth and local employment.

Key highlights:

  • The cloud is leveling the playing field for small businesses by improving their access to data.
  • Local relationships are more important than ever to business success.
  • ‘DIY’ marketing tools like Social Media and Email Marketing are going to be a big focus in 2014.

We encourage you to enjoy, share widely and show your support by shopping at small businesses every day!
