JupiterResearch Projects Flat Tech Spending by Small Business

Share this content:
Newly published JupiterResearch analysis indicates technology spending by small businesses will be relatively flat this year, though technology marketers should target certain segments that are set to ramp up expenditures.


The analysis, the first in a series of new JupiterResearch reports called SMB Marketing, surveyed 260 purchase decision makers at businesses employing fewer than 250 people.


Small business technology spending for those surveyed is flat this year compared with the last. Forty-four percent of the firms earmarked less than $5,000 for technology purchases this year.


But small businesses that are less than 3 years old plan to increase technology spending in the $5,000 to $24,999 range. This segment represents a technology marketing opportunity.
