The buzz: I’ve gotta be me!

Our appetite for online reading, viewing and buying is voracious.

How hungry are we? In just 8 minutes, Alibaba achieved $1b in sales on Singles Day November 2015. 42% of shoppers search product information on a mobile device while in-store. We spend 2 more hours a day on mobile than 3 years ago. This technology tidal wave keep us connected and social.

News flash: Small businesses want a piece of this action, too. But can they become a better, digital version of themselves without losing what makes them unique?

The experts speak.
