Salary Survey result: 51% of contractors under $250,000 billings now have websites

The more money contractors are billing, the more likely they are to have websites. Or is that the other way around?

Well, hell has frozen over. For years, a majority of contractors held out without websites, but contractors without websites now appear to be a minority. At least, the contracors responding to Canadian Contractor‘s recent Rogers by Outrank Salary Survey told us so.

The chart below won’t come as a big surprise: The contractors in our recent Rogers by Outrank Salary Survey who have websites are more likely to be seeing significant incomes versus the ones who are still off-line. And as we can see below, the trend is accelerating. At the “more than $500k” level, 81% of contractors had websites, up from 79% in last year’s survey, up from 42% two years ago. Things have certainly changed a lot in two years. If your contracting business still lacks a website, given these findings, it’s probably time to take action and get online.

Total billings less than $250k.
