According to Entrepreneur.com, 46% of small businesses do not have a website. That’s surprising – and worrisome – especially with online trends and increased mobile searches!
We recently met a business owner at a Petoskey networking event who asked, “Does my small business really need a website?” In order to reach a larger market and be competitive in a specific industry, our answer was a definite yes! (This person’s question also led us to believe that the Entrepreneur.com stats are all too true.)
The experts at Abuzz Creative are not the ones making you question your need for a website.
- It’s your customer. They expect your business to have a website. People are searching online for your services.
- It’s your competition. Your business will be forced to catch up and compete in your industry. If your competition has a website and you don’t, chances are good that 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 website opens your business up to 24/7 accessibility. A well designed website will inspire trust and build credibility for your business.
Stop asking, “Does my business need a website?” and start doing.
