Google Survey: Only 20% Of Croatian Firms Using Internet For Sales

A research survey conducted during 2012 for Google Croatia has revealed that small and medium-sized businesses in Croatia are lagging behind the rest of Europe when it comes to using the internet to increase sales of their products and services, reports netokracija.

The survey, conducted by GfK, showed that only 20% of small and medium-sized businesses used to the internet to increase sales. Only 50% of the 700 companies surveyed had their own website, although 99% of companies with more than 10 employees had their own website.
