Does My Small Business Need A Website?
The short answer: YES! Read on to find out exactly why…
As a small business owner, you might not think you need a website. In fact, I’m sure that you can think of at least one business that is doing perfectly fine without a website, which is great. But the secret that all website owners know is that the business you just thought of could be doing even better with an online presence.
Now you might say, “My business runs great without a website. Why complicate things?”. Here’s why:
Even if you rely on local word-of-mouth referrals for 90% of your business, you could still increase your client base with a website. This is true even if your company is small-scale and does business only in person. Finally, the number one reason is because of habit, thanks to a little device that you probably have in your pocket or purse right now.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans own smartphones that they use – almost constantly – to access information. From these small screens people are able to look up anything at any time… well that is if the company they are looking for has a website. With a few clicks your business could show up in a search as the best candidate for the job – if you have a website as a point of contact.
