The non-profit organization SCORE recently reported that only 51% of small businesses have websites. If your business is one of the 49% that does not have a website, how will potential customers know that your company exists?
There has to be a reason your business does not have a website.
Do you think a website is too expensive?
Think again! Start out by having a simple and functional website developed professionally. You’ll be surprised at how affordable an entry level website can be, and the return on investment will be huge for your business.
Do you think it’s too hard to maintain a website?
Not at all! Work with a web design firm that develops websites with a content manager like WordPress. Your website will be very easy to maintain and you can expand your website as your business grows.
Do you feel your business focus is “just local” so no website needed?
Even when searching for local services and products, people look online using their phones and computers. If your competition has a website and you don’t, chances are you are losing out on more potential sales than you know.
In order for your business to expand and find potential customers, you need an online presence. Having a mobile-friendly website opens your business up to 24/7 accessibility. A well-designed website will inspire trust and build credibility for your business.
The answer to the question, “Does my small business really need a website?” will always be a definite yes!
