In this article, we will present you with a big list of reasons why small businesses need a website. I know you may be thinking, but why? I am not big enough. My customers and clients are not tech savvy and they are not on the internet.
Well, you know how everything today is about being accessible online and show what you can do or offer to people. That’s the thing about it. Your clients and customers are online and are trying to find more about your business.
Everything is switching to online. I for one didn’t even want to send a job application to a company that didn’t invest in a website. Because this meant that if they can’t or won’t invest in themselves, how are they going to invest in me.
And I am not talking about money. I am talking about time and knowledge. It’s like they don’t care about their business and don’t want it to be successful in the long-term.
Your business is your passion and is providing for you and your family. The truth is, it’s more than that. And believe me, I know. I started a business (Nomiscom WebDesign), out of urgency, but it became, something that I want to nurture.
It’s my voice to help others and help you to do better in today’s fast pacing era.
I believe you want your business to grow. Owner or not, you do what you do, because you like it.
Not only to provide for your family, lifestyle but from my perspective to provide help to Businesses and help them grow.
And I am sure you want to help businesses and people too because your customer’s success is your success.
You know that you can get more out of your Business and you can serve and help more people by being online. This means you are accessible anytime and everywhere.
The interesting part about the business websites is, that having a website is not only recommended, but it has become a necessity.
Yes, the percentage of Businesses that have a website has increased in one year. In 2016 there were almost 50 % of Businesses that didn’t have a website. The new research shows the percentage is improving.
In 2017 only 29 % of Businesses didn’t have a website. But the alarming thing is that they don’t use it to market themselves.
The information is for the USA, but I think that the results are similar for rest of the World or more likely worse and there are likely around 40 % of Businesses without an online presence.
If you don’t have it, you are losing revenue and reputation. You should understand, that for now you can have enough revenue and clients, but when the younger people will start to be more in the market you will be losing out.
Let this sink in 81 % of people are doing research on the desired product before they buy (Hubspot Marketing Stats). So, this should be a bit of a waking call and you should be leaning toward the yes answer.
Of course, these are statistics and I want to give you some more reasons you should get your Business a website.
