79 Percent of Small Businesses Revealed a Confident to Neutral Economic Outlook in 2010

This is the results of a new Small Business survey done by the email marketing firm, Constant Contact, in collaboration with other small business advocates, including the American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE), SCORE, and the Association of Small Business Development Centers (ASBDC). It shows a resurgence in market confidence among small business owners.  Just as interesting are the ways small businesses are marketing themselves, with social media usage increasing dramatically from even last year.  

From the Constant Contact press release:
"Small businesses across the country were among the most heavily impacted by the economic downturn. However, the results of our survey suggest that we are starting to see a leveling-off effect that has these determined small business owners feeling more optimistic," said Gail Goodman, CEO and chairman, Constant Contact. "The improving sentiment among small businesses is particularly encouraging, as these passionate and innovative small businesses are the organizations that have led the U.S. economy out of past recessions. I encourage everyone to do their part and help support small businesses in their neighborhood."
