Current State of the Economy – Not Looking Great…

Economic conditions

I have had many mixed thoughts on how the economy is really doing.  My personal gut feeling (someone once told me, you should always go with your gut feeling), is that things are not really getting better.

This could be in part due to so many people telling me that “business is down from the same time last year”, despite that the “news” keeps reporting that everything is up.  Well if everything is up, why are so many business owners reporting less appealing results from last year?

On that note, we have still had many people advise although sales are down, budgets for marketing (including press release distribution), and ad-words have still held steady.

We came across this interesting poll to demonstrate what the public feel about the economy:
