7 reasons your small business needs a website

Small_Business_Website

Almost half of all small businesses still don't have a website. Given how much technology and the internet has changed how we research and buy 'stuff' in the last 10 years that is a staggering statistic.

The most common reason for not having a website is that most small business owners think that their small business 'doesn't need a website'.  Here are a couple of reasons why it might be time to consider your options for getting your business online:

1. It's an online brochure or shop window

Unlike that brochure you handed out at the networking event which is now most likely in recycling or buried somewhere in the car if you gave it to me, your website is a permanently available brochure and shop window.

Anyone you meet can immediately check your business online and can return to it at a later date ... it won't get lost.

2. Business credibility

By having an online presence you immediately indicate your permanence. You are serious about your business and you are investing in it.

3. Exposure to more customers

By having a website you are potentially visible to millions of internet users everyday.

4. Constant visibility

Your website is visible to your customers and potential customers 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, without you even having to be around.

Plan the content well and answer any of their potential questions, encourage them to leave their details by and you've even got sales leads to follow up.

5. Easy communication

It's quick and easy to update a website which makes it a very easy way to keep your customers informed of your new products and services.

6. Easy marketing

A website is just one the new ways of marketing that has become available since the birth of the internet. It can be a low cost way of marketing yourself and your business products and services.

7. Showcase your work

A website provides a very easy of means of displaying your portfolio of work.
