There are a billion reasons why accessibility is smart business

Do the math. Over 1 billion people in the world have some type of disability. Each has their own circle of brand influencers — friends, family, and caregivers. Combined, they represent a demographic with a whopping $8 trillion in disposable income. Creating an accessible brand experience helps connect your brand with people ready to become customers.

Well-designed and accessible branded experiences include mobile, video, content development, and digital marketing that make interacting with your business simpler for all of your users.

Web accessibility issues can lead to lawsuits and ADA demand letters — along with costly legal fees and harm to your company’s reputation. In 2020, demand letters increased by 65%, and courts reported more than 2,000 lawsuits in the United States alone.

The best way to plan and deploy accessibility enhancements is with a phased approach that will not cause business delays or disarray.
