First, we asked our survey respondents for their company's gross revenues in 2007:

  • 18% reported between $300,000 and $500,000
  • 9% reported between $2 million and $4 million
  • 18% reported more than $4 million

A majority of our respondents predicted their gross revenues would decrease in 2008 compared to 2007:

  • 45% predicted a decrease of more than 10%
  • 18% predicted a decrease of between 1% and 10%
  • 27% predicted their revenues would stay the same as 2007
  • 9% predicted an increase of between 1% and 10%
