Many small businesses often ask the question whether a website is essential to any business.
Well before you rule out that you need one, or are thinking about waiting for a later date, consider this.
The benefits of having a website can't be counted on both hands. The best way to determine if a website is essential for your business, yourselves in the position of a customer looking to give a company work. Who would you go with? The business with an amazing website, customers reviews, image galleries, testimonials, endless information or the business that has nothing but an address and a phone number in a telephone directory?
People like to see what they are getting for their money, they want to know that an investment they are making is going to be worth while. They want to know who they are working with, what other people think of them and they want visualise the type of people that work for them.
How else does your customer know to trust in you to deliver what they want if they don't know anything about you or any of the previous work you have done?. In this modern day, the first thing the majority of us would do if we heard a company name or was given a recommendation of a service would be to either google them or hunt them down on social media.
If your customer cant find you, how can they give you work?
In short a website is an essential investment for anyone looking to grow a company, remain successful and keep in thriving in business.
