We work with small businesses that are just starting and don’t have a website yet. We hear them say things like, “I don’t need a website” or “I don’t want to spend the money.” But we’ve found that there are many reasons why even the smallest business should have a presence online—and one of those reasons is because it’s easier than ever for them to do so!
If you’re not sure whether or not you need a website, here are good reasons why you should think about getting one:
Reach a wider audience
If your customers are looking for the services you offer through Google searches and social media searches, they will find your competitors before they find you. You may think that because your business is small and local, people will come to see you when they need something or want something done—but that’s not always true! If someone is looking for something specific in their area and can’t find it on Google Maps or Yelp, they might just assume it doesn’t exist—and then go elsewhere.
Get more leads on your website
Your customers can contact you directly from their phone or computer if they need anything from you or would like more information on something in particular. This makes it much easier for them because they don’t have to call or email someone else to get back to them right away instead of waiting until a later time when someone else might be available.
Build trust with your potential customers
Having a website builds trust with your potential customers. People will search for your website and seek the credibility needed for them to use your services. The more credible your business looks, the more people will use it.
Gives you an advantage over your competitors
If you have a website, you will have an advantage over other businesses that don’t have one. This gives you an edge over competitors because people can easily find out about your company and get information about what you do without asking anyone else about it. Having a website means that more people will know about your company than someone who doesn’t have one – giving you an advantage over competitors in the market!
