Why does my business need a website?

Some business owners are uncomfortable with the idea of getting a website, for a few reasons:

Business owners are:

  1. too busy to investigate getting a website designed;
  2. intimidated at the thought of getting a website, possibly because of a lack of technological knowledge;
  3. weary of being ripped off;
  4. comfortable with their current form of marketing, typically word of mouth, or the yellow pages.

The last 10 years has seen a vast shift in the ways consumers engage with businesses, as can be seen by the infographic.

The problem with the yellow pages is, people don’t use them anymore. People have smartphones in their pockets, they won’t go to a clunky phone book to look something up, they google it.

Ask yourself: if someone uses Google or Yahoo to find a company that offers the same service you do, will they find you? If they don’t, they will go to the other business.

A website is the perfect tool to help potential customers know that you exist, what you offer, when you are open, and that you have what they are looking for. A website talks about your business when you aren’t able to. It’s on day and night. A website is a vital part of the modern day business.

Take a look at the sites we have made for our clients. Read what they have to say. We stand behind our work, we pride ourselves on affordable professional looking websites.

If you don’t know what content to put on we can help you build site content so that you don’t have to do much more than provide us an overview of your business.

We can help you manage the site if technology is too intimidating for you to be bothered with, our desire is to help you keep focused on your company and not make a project like this a distraction.
