Small Businesses Know Marketing is Important but Continue to Under Invest, Survey Says - Small Business Trends

Are you underinvesting in marketing for your business? Kabbage's CRO, Victoria Treyger, gives practical ways to win big at a low cost. https://smallbiztrends.com/2018/06/small-business-growth-statistics.html

The report also showed marketing is one of the most underinvested areas with small businesses, reaching as low as 5% of total spend in various ages of a business. In retrospect, however, successful small business owners wish they would have invested anywhere from 2X-4X more in marketing each year they were in business. https://www.kabbage.com/pdfs/pressreleases/Kabbage%20Report_Lifestages%20SMB%20Survey_FINAL.pdf

Meet one of our Summer 2018 Brussel Sprout Interns, Angela Yang from Carnegie Mellon University! After finding an open position from an online job board, she applied to Kabbage and is currently working in the Engineering Department.

When asked about her favorite aspect of the internship program here at Kabbage, Angela says “the friendly, fun and welcoming people have made me feel so welcome! (the free food isn’t so bad either!)”

Here at Kabbage, we value our interns and provide them with the opportunity to contribute their efforts to valuable projects. “During my first week, I got to jump right into the code! I had the chance to contribute a feature to the Kabbage Platform and merge my first pull request. I look forward to learning a lot and getting to know more Kabbagers.”

Time For A Change - Take A Stand With Kabbage

At Kabbage, we simply cannot imagine the grief of families who too often have been stricken by gun violence like the tragedy in Parkland, Florida. The technology community must work to prevent these horrifying and heartbreaking events from robbing our children of their futures.

In our business, we say there are thousands of ways to attract a customer. Unfortunately, none are easy, and we must be good at all of them. Implementing vital change is no different; there is no magic formula. It will take all of us rolling up our sleeves and trying new tactics, and while many will fail, innovative solutions will help us achieve the results we desire. It will take revision, focus and persistence.

As a technology leader and financial services company, we believe we have a unique responsibility and opportunity to help prevent future tragedies from occurring. Doing nothing is still a choice. We choose to act.
