When people find out what I do I am often asked "Do I really need a website?". My answer is an unequivocal Yes! For example, if you are a plumber in Cincinnati and don't have a website you would not be in front of the 320 searches every month on Google for the term, "Plumber in Cincinnati. If you do not have a website, how would these 320 potential customers know your business exists?
This is why small businesses need a website.
A website for your small business allows you to compete when potential customers look for your product or service. According to the SBA (Small Business Administration) 97% of consumers look online for local products and services.
In addition, your small business website is an affordable way to:
Gain Trust- A website with useful content about your product or service allows you to gain trust with potential customers. They know you know what you're talking about.
Get New Customers- Your website is a full-time salesperson without the overhead expense of a traditional employee. And it's open 24/7!
Beat Your Competitors- 47% of your small business competitors do not have a website. Recent research reveals that 84% of consumers believe a business with a website is more credible.
Are you in a competitive local market and need to stand out, then we should talk.
