Which industries are best in this economy?

Response Point digital service provider NGT, working with SMBNation,  is conducting a survey of Microsoft Partners.  The survey closes on Friday, December 19th, so hurry: you still have time to enter (and maybe win an iPod!).

Meanwhile, NGT shared with us some early results of their polling that I thought was interesting.  Here’s how the first 300 respondents answered the question “What industries are you working with that do not appear to be impacted by today's economic downturn? “

  • Medical industries 65.6%
  • Education 23.4%
  • Property management / rental management 22.1%
  • Energy companies 11.0%
  • Liquor stores or breweries ("recession-proof“) 10.4%
  • Other fill-ins included: legal, accounting, “not all financial”, small community banks, software/hardware engineering, specialty manufacturing, government, professional services, food services (meat, dairy, cheese)
