88% of people start their search online before buying a product or service, so depending on what product or service you have, this can be a huge game-changer for you. This percentage was before the virus. So this percentage is going to be 90+%, as a lot more people were forced to search online and they got comfortable searching online.

95% of purchasing is emotional. So if you understand how high the numbers are – you will realize how critical it is now to have an online presence and what is even more important – to understand the needs of your customers.
