PROGRAM DETAILS

The Local Pulse Report™ is a series of reports and insights generated from our ongoing survey of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). These studies, conducted at least twice a year, provide a comprehensive view of how SMBs are marketing their businesses, the technology they are using, their future expectations, what they want out of marketing service providers, and they explore the behaviors/trends that are influencing their decisions as business owners. Also, each wave provides Thrive Analytics’ clients with the ability to add customized questions to uncover real-time issues/trends relevant to their business needs.
