I need someone to research and find many articles (all from reputable sources, preferably from USA, but not self-published ezine articles) that discuss the importance of a website for a small business. I need articles AND specific numbers (percentage of customers who research online before choosing a restaurant, store, service provider, etc) and figures for some or all of the following industries:
-Personal trainers (fitness)
Professional Service Providers:
Basically, I am a web designer trying to sell web design/marketing services to small local businesses that do not already have an online presence. I need someone to find me a lot of articles and facts/figures that will convince my clients in the above industries that they need a website because they are missing out on potential business.
Please give as many articles/statistics you can find for the specific industries listed above. I don't need articles for every industry listed, that is just a guideline.
See attached file, it is an example of what I'm looking for (it is a credible source and contains statistics for the industry.)
Thank you, please let me know if any clarification is needed!
