86% of Members Had an Increase in Revenue from 2014 to 2015

We recently conducted our first member survey to compile some general statistical data on the state of business, a majority of members participated. What’s most interesting to note is the fact that over 90% of our members have just 1 to 4 employees, yet 1/3rd of all members bring in over $100,000 in annual gross revenue and 20% generate $250,000 to $500,000 in sales. Almost all members stated they had a revenue increase from 2014 to 2015 and about half expect to hire new employees in 2016. In summary, our members are “small business” at its core, but for nearly everyone, their business is either their only job or it makes up a significant portion of their annual income. Most important, business is growing!
