Did you Know…SMEs account for 99.9% of all UK Enterprises?By joanne | 28th July | Marketing Ideas
According to a recent article in The Marketer magazine, SMEs account for 99.9% of all UK enterprises and generate 50% of private sector turnover. Almost 60% of private sector jobs are in these companies – but our schools and universities seem to be preparing people to work in large corporates, rather than small companies.
Small companies (with up to 49 staff) account for 48% of employment – which is staggering. What if we could help each of those companies employ just one more member of staff? Surely that would be a very fast way out of the recession?
Likewise, these companies provide a rich source for any target audience – there are millions of SMEs across the country and it’s likely they need assistance and services and sales – especially at the moment, so they can thrive and grow. Let’s stop focusing on the big guys and get where the real action is!
I’d love your comments.
