Yes! Plain and simple, especially in our era of technology. Everyone has a small computer in their pocket, and when they are looking for a service, where do they go?
When a possible customer is looking for a service, they are bound to use Google. When they do, you want your business to not only show up, but to have a website linked. If a potential customer can browse your website, they are able to get an idea of what you offer, and make a more informed decision. Not sold that you NEED a website? Well, here are a few reasons to help get you motivated.
· Everyone is always ONLINE
A recent study estimated that the average adult spends nearly 12 hours online every day! If that not reason enough then I don’t know what will convince you!
· Customers EXPECT it
If your business does not have an online presence, customers feel that you are not committed and aren’t interested in finding new customers. They will often go with your competitor, who has a website.
· Legitimizes your business
Makes your business legit because you now have an online presence, which shows that you are invested in your business.
· Potential Clients
A website offers a way for potential clients to find out about you and your brand. It is also a great place to send clients to find out more about your business.
· You control information and branding
When you have a website, you are in control of the information provided. It creates an official presence online so you can speak for yourself. User comments are great but can often sway your message or ideas. By laying it all out on your website there is no room for misinterpretation.
Creating a website can be a big undertaking, but done right, it will pay off in the end and be well worth your time and investment.
