In today’s world, every business needs to take advantage of technology. Do you need a website? No matter what, the answer to that question is a resounding, “YES!” It does not matter what your business or product is, you need to have a presence on the internet where people can go to look up your information, a website IS your businesses online brochure! There have been plenty of times when I have found myself searching the internet to find out more information on a business, but have hit a brick wall because they did not have a website. This led me to just go with another company that did have one and that local business lost my patronage because of their lack of being in the 21st century.
As quickly as the world moves these days, you are really shooting yourself in the proverbial foot by not putting a simple site up online. There are plenty of free web servers you can use and free domains that include ads on the websites. However, if you want to spend just a little bit of money a year, you can get an online presence for as little as $500 including annual costs of hosting ($40) and the creation of the website.
Things to consider when putting a website together is to ensure the functionality and user friendliness of the site are taken into consideration, and relevance to your site content to the kind of business you have. It should not be difficult for a potential customer to find the information that they are looking for. The most valuable information to include is: name, phone number, and location of business, business hours if you have a physical store or office, the products/services you offer, and then how to get the products/services.
