ATB Business Beat:

How are small and mid-sized businesses in Alberta using social media?

April 2017

Social media has revolutionized the way that we interact, socialize and share information about business. In this ATB Business Beat we look at how many Alberta small and mid-sized businesses (SMEs) are on social media and what they use it for. In addition, we ask if they think their business will use social media more, less or about the same amount in the coming year. We also ask if Alberta SMEs believe the Alberta economy, and their business, will be better off, the same or worse six months from now.
