York, NE: 11/16/2021 –  WWW.YORKDEVCO.COM website provides free market research and business intelligence to help small businesses

York County Development Corporation is launching SizeUP | York County NE on its website today, making powerful market research and business intelligence available to local businesses to help them succeed. 

Local businesses can now access industry-specific and hyperlocal information to help them grow and make smarter decisions using Big Data analysis. The research is individually customized for each company. By using the website service local businesses are able to: 

  • Rank their business performance compared to industry competitors 
  • Discover potential customers, suppliers, and better understand their competitive landscape 
  • Optimize advertising to target ideal customer segments 

SizeUp helps to level the competitive business playing field by providing small businesses with similar market research that typically only large corporations can afford to access by contracting multinational management consulting companies or hiring internal research analysts. “In today’s information economy, if you don’t have access to information your business is at a significant disadvantage. With the launch of SizeUp on the YORKDEVCO.COM website, we are empowering our small businesses in York County to be able to make more data-driven decisions to better operate, succeed, and grow,” said Lisa Hurley, York County Development Corporation Executive Director. 

In the USA, over 99% of all companies are small businesses and small businesses create the majority of all net new private sector jobs (Source: US Small Business Administration and US Bureau of Labor Statistics). From 1993 to 2015 small businesses created 425% more net new jobs than large companies (Source: US Bureau of Labor Statistics). In addition, locally-owned businesses create a larger economic impact on the local economy because more money spent with them is re-spent locally. “York County Development Corporation is committed to helping our local businesses succeed. They are the foundation of our local economy, employ our residents, create new jobs, and make our community a more prosperous place. Providing SizeUp business assistance service on our website is another way in which we are partnering with our local businesses for their success,” said Lisa Hurley, York County Development Corporation Executive Director. 

“What a wonderful tool for people to look up information on an accessible level. Any time you do an SBA loan or business plan it is really hard to get this information. This will be a huge asset to the business community.” Barry Redfern, Mayor of City of York.

SizeUp uses big data, cloud computing, and computer algorithms to deliver custom analysis for local businesses. The data comes from hundreds of public and proprietary data sources covering firmographic, demographic, geographic, labor, wage, cost, consumer spending, transportation, and more. 

This new service provided by York County Development Corporation is completely free to local businesses and available anytime through the York County Development Corporation website at www.yorkdevco.com under the Business tab. Click here.
