Connected Business In The Digital Economy

Deloitte released their report on how Australian small businesses are responding to the digital economy. You can find the report here.

The report shows the value but also the limited uptake by small business in Australia, of the very things that could be generating new and additional sales for the businesses. 

They identified 4 levels of engagement online. I think there are 5. 
Those businesses at the top two levels will be competitive in the new economy.

“If you do not have a digital footprint as a business or individual, I instantly don’t trust you. 
I instantly think you’re hiding something,”

"Brands that don't embrace mobile "will be totally irrelevant," says Todd Sampson and a panel of digital experts in Sydney

Sixty-six million years ago, a meteorite hit the Earth and it killed nearly all of the dinosaurs,” said Todd Sampson, well-known CEO of Leo Burnett Australia and the host of ABC programme Redesign Your Brain during a panel session at the event on 31 October.

“Technically, the dinosaurs were dead when the meteorite had hit, but they didn’t know and they lived on for a period of time before they eventually died. You could argue that digital meteorite has already hit the majority of businesses in our country and around the world, and most of them are actually dead - they just don't know it yet."
The new generation is obsessed with mobile, Sampson continued. “If you as a business are not in that space, you will be totally irrelevant. You will not even be remotely considered for anything.”
