The year is 2017, and you still don’t have a website for your small business?!
It probably even sounds a little bit outrageous to you. Small business owners come up with many excuses to avoid building a website, but we’ll tell you the truth: all those excuses are completely bunk. There’s a tough truth to learn and it is that there is absolutely no excuse to not have a website! The good news is, it’s never too late to start, and we’re here to help you along the way.
Some people use the excuse that they simply don’t need a website. However, that’s just not true. Almost everyone uses the internet and the people who don’t are complete weirdos. When was the last time you did anything without first consulting the internet from ordering food, researching a product to buy or looking up the address of a physical place you wanted to go? By not having a website you are missing out on a lot of opportunities, and you are also missing out on making things more convenient for your customers and clients!
Other people say that they have enough customers. This is great for you, but wouldn’t you like to make it even easier for your customers to get information about your products and give you money? With a website you can provide online payment portals, and have a website will also help with customer retention so you will continue to have enough customers.
A very common excuse for business owners is to say that they use social media instead of having a website. This is a fine idea because social media is very important to any marketing mix, but it’s hard to capture your followers as customers without a website. Especially in the millennial generation, users judge company’s without websites harshly because they know how easy it is to create one, and how convenient it is to use one to get information.
