Weird 2020 Stats :P

 It’s a tad too predictable to do just the same-old thing every Monday, don’t you think? So here’s something a little different; how about this time, we check a handful of weird stats and facts?
For instance, did you know that…

♣ in January 2020, there were 1.2 billion websites in the world? That’s active, working, visited webpages. It means that for every 7 people in the world there’s a completely unique website! And you thought you were a beautiful snowflake…

♦ a person can drive around 80 times under the influence (DUI) before getting caught? This is a truly sobering statistic (but hopefully not to many of us).

♠ 90% of all email messages are, in fact, spam? It means that no matter how many tedious emails you send out (including CYA’s) a day, a busy spambot will work nine times as hard, making some companies a lot more money in ad revenue. All your spam are belong to us!

But kidding aside, here’s a few legit business stats for this year:

  • And the shining light at the end of the tunnel is that 8 months into the pandemic, it takes about 7 days to do what previously required 2-3 years in terms of realigning a business to new needs. We’ve gotten more flexible across business landscape, even if the landscape itself has changed quite dramatically.

Stay tuned! We’ll have even more weird, interesting and surprising little factoids and statistics soon (and more than a few cringe-worthy puns to boot!).
