One of the most surprising things when looking at small businesses is how so many of them do not have a website.
“Your website is an important part of your business. Make sure you treat it as such.”
Here are the 3 most important reasons why you need a professional website:
1. To be found online. Nowadays customers research online before driving to the business. You need to have a presence on the web so that customers, potential employees, business partners and perhaps even investors can quickly and easily find out more about your business and the products or services you have to offer.
2. For your small business to be taken seriously. If you have a business, you should have a website. Period. No question. Without a doubt.. That being said, it’s not enough that you just have a website. You must have a professional-looking site if you want to be taken seriously.
2. It saves you money. The cost of getting your website up and running can be as low as $720 (according to Ink Graphics), once it’s up and running, a website for a small business generally costs about $15 a month. Compared with the cost of a magazine ad, when you consider the potential market you can reach with a website, it is a very cost effective way to promote your business.
