Why Your Small Business Needs a Website

Many small businesses don’t have a website.

It seems like everything is done online these days. With the touch of a button, you can deposit or purchase a new couch. Unfortunately, not all businesses are taking advantage of these new opportunities. A 2013 survey revealed that over half of small businesses do not even have a website.

Small business owners cite several reasons for not having a website. Some companies think it will be too expensive or too time-consuming. Others just don’t see the benefits, especially when they’ve been success without having a website. However, more and more consumers are relying on their tablets, computers, and cell phones to find local businesses. Without a website, your business will be left out of the conversation completely.

Why this matters to you.

If you don’t have a website for your company, you’re probably losing business to your competitors already. A website gives you an opportunity to showcase the best version of yourself and your business. You have total control over what your customers learn about your business and the services you provide. The best part? When you go home from the night, your website will still be open for business.

If you’re worried about cost, keep in mind that a professional looking website does not have to cost an arm and a leg. Hiring a professional designer to build is your website is just one of many options. If you’re somewhat computer savvy, you may even be able to build it yourself with the help of an online service. If you’re on a budget and need some additional assistance, think about asking a friend, neighbor, or family member to help you out. It's always okay to ask for a little help.
