Q: Why do I need a website?
A: That’s a very good question. In fact, it’s one of the most important and most frequently asked questions of the digital business age.
So should your business have a website? Even if your business is small and sells products or services you don’t think can be sold online? Yes, if you have a business, you should have a website. Period. No question. Without a doubt.
Even if you offer a product or service that you don’t think can be sold on the internet you need a website!
Your website is a 24 hour 7 day a week 365 day a year information kiosk for your business that should be designed to either sell your goods and services online, make your phone ring or have customers walk through your door.
Not that long ago having an ad in the yellow pages was critical for any business and it still is but today with smartphones and tablets more and more people are using internet search engines like google to find business’s and services to suit thier needs.
The internet has replaced the phone book as the number 1 source for looking up information on goods and services and if you don’t have an effective website it’s opportunity lost. Ignoring the internet and online marketing is like opening a business and not telling anyone.
