Webinar - Spotlight On: Digital Accessibility for Your Marketing Campaign

Overview

Accessibility is not just about complying with the law. It’s also about giving consumers with disabilities the opportunity to employ or buy your services.

Did you know that people with disabilities have an estimated spending power of $25 Billion per year? That’s right – if you are not including consumers with disabilities as part of your target audience, you may be losing out on an important group of potential customers. And it’s not just about making your brick-and-mortar store physically accessible – nowadays digital accessibility is just as important.
