It’s not losing 5 kilos or drinking less alcohol that’s on the minds of many small business people this new year. According to a survey by MOO (moo.com) many small business owners want to get out from behind their desks and network with news people.
MOO asked its social communities on Facebook and Twitter what their biggest business barrier was over the last 12 months. Nearly two-thirds (61.5 per cent) admitted that it was not having enough time to get out of the office and meet people face to face.
Respondents also said that facing distractions in the office (23 per cent) and too many emails (15 per cent) were also barriers to getting on with business in 2012
Looking to 2013, MOO asked its social community what changes they would like to implement in the next 12 months. Over half (56 per cent) said they would like to spend more time meeting people and networking.
“It’s so easy to overlook the value of face to face networking in business today, but clearly our own community of users sees the importance of it and wants to do more of it,” according to MOO’s Head of Marketing, Paul Lewis.
