Trends for the Web Knowledge Worker in Old Town Rock Hill, SC

Comments Off on Trends for the Web Knowledge Worker in Old Town Rock Hill, SC | By

I see two trends emerging:

  • the knowledge worker
  • the web

My research tells me that the Professional Services marketplace (health, financial, technology, and more) is increasingly the engine of the US economy.

This marketplace is increasingly made-up of knowledge workers – those highly skilled workers who may function as employees, contracted employees, service provider companies, or freelancers. There are already 11,000 single-person businesses in York County, according to Bruce Yandle of Clemson University.

As for the web, my research tells me that around 70% of small businesses outsource their web marketing/consulting/development. Small public sector and non-profit organizations are no different.

There is work in clustering. A skilled knowledge worker can provide services to a national, even global marketplace, and contract with one another, and have an environment of shared learning.

We are here in Old Town Rock Hill.
