Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2019 -- Leadership Beyond Borders, the weekly broadcast hosted by Kimberli J. Lewis, discusses small and medium businesses online presences in its episode airing on February 19 at 3:00 pm PT. Ms. Lewis takes a deep dive into the statistics reveled by the Search and Information Industry Association Europe (SIINDA).

Ms. Lewis interviews representatives from SIINDA, who conducted a landscape survey that interviewed over 390,000 small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) in Europe as well as the United Arab Emirates concerning their online presences.

The study provides insights on how SMBs are performing on key attributes for a successful online presence, and which areas need to be improved for optimal performance. Ms. Lewis reveals some of the key findings of the survey, including the critical facts:

- More than 37% of websites analysed were not optimised for mobile phones or tablets

- Only 38% of sites had any sort of analytics tool to understand visitor behaviour on their site

- 46% of websites have not been updated within a year.

Other findings showed that in certain geographical areas such as the United Arab Emeritus, small and medium businesses are leading the world in social media representation, whereas in some geographical areas where there is an established economy, such as Germany, social media presence is lagging far behind, possibly due to privacy issues.

The results are discussed in the Leadership Beyond Borders series with Kimberli Lewis on February 19, 2019, 3 pm PT on the VoiceAmerica Business channel. The results and tips give on the show are not only interesting to digital marketers but also to small business who need to ensure their presence on the web.
