Everyone knows how stunningly gorgeous the Virgin Islands and Caribbean are, right? However have you ever stopped to thing about just how populated the Caribbean really is, compared to other regions around the world.
Here’s some quick statistics so you may have an idea of the buying power of the dazzling Caribbean: according to the CIA and World Atlas, there are presently 43.4 Million people living in the various island countries of the Caribbean.
WOW, is right… and consider this fact: for the upcoming 2020/2021 season it’s expected we will see up to 26.7 million travelers / tourist grace our shores. Yes, another astounding fact, right?
So this means that the Caribbean overall may represent a buying power of more than 70 million strong.
Yet when a North American company has grand success with a breakout product or service they rarely think of the Caribbean as their next new expansion territory. Instead they typically think Europe or Asia or perhaps the Netherlands or even the Slovak regions. And while that is great the Caribbean truly represents the active consumer – with money to spend. Just like you and me, right?!
So many people have asked us why did we develop what is fast becoming the region’s fastest growing online resource: the Virgin Islands Business Services Directory..?
And why take the massive devotion of time to create so many How to Guides and Informative Articles, just to give them away – COMPLETELY FOR FREE?
The simple answer is we believe in a free-marketsociety. It allows us freedom / options / choices. And bottom-line is we are blessed here in the Virgin Islands, and the Caribbean overall, to have a plethora of excellent business owners, skilled craftsman/craftswomen, and supreme talent from every walk of life. And its high-time we yell from the (electronic) rooftops and let the world know.
Personally, I’ve been blessed with visiting and doing business in the Caribbean for over 32 years. After Living, Working and Playing in the Virgin Islands for over 14 years I have come to realize that our islands are, in some ways, still pioneering their way when it comes to commerce, especially on the online front.
