Ross Davies - The Growth of Disparate Information, and What It Means for the Small Business Landscape

As apps and social media continue to evolve and grow, your website will soon no longer been your main shopping portal. This is because of the growth of disparate information – the idea that customers will check multiple different sources of information before making a decision. As a small business, this means that you can no longer rely on having one information hub. Imagine booking a restaurant for a meal out – how many different sources of information would you check before booking? This change is going to redefine how you build and manage the online profile of your business – are you ready?
