Why All Small Businesses Should Have a Website

We have made calls to local businesses to make a small study on why they have not built a website for their businesses online. We have heard every excuse as to why they have not had a website built already. 

 

 

 

 

  • Too much money and it is complicated to keep up with 
  • have been in business so long without one I don’t think I will need one 
  • I know everyone uses their cell phone and internet these days just didn’t have time think of building one yet 
  • I got a Facebook page I think that should do. 
  • I do enough business to pay my bills I am doing just fine without one  

     

 Well. Business is all about growing, and unless you are not looking to bring more profit to your bottom line. You need a website.  these are some of the reasons why you need a good website for your small business.

Your Customers expect your business to have a website.

Digital savvy, and often impatient customers are always looking for easier ways to shop. Online is the answer.  For one, an online website doesn’t have to operate only on the open hours. Most consumers have too much going on in their lives, they may not be able to get to your store before you close.  Then what?  You have lost that customer my friend. Business that provide a website to consumers gets more orders, leads & customers through the website while the physical store is closed. 

Your business website provides Social Proof 

According to a study, more than 90% of consumers said before making a purchase, they want to check a product’s specifications or a service online.  They said this does influence their shopping decisions.  

With a business website, the owner can reach the target audience faster.  This would cut down on killing trees because you won’t have to have fliers and things printed anymore.  Let your website do the advertising for you.  

Social icons, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for example, can reach the target audience fast and get’s people to your website.  This makes the content easier for the average consumer to like what they see.

Your Competitors All Have a Business Website 

Consumers make most of their buying decisions based on research and advice from their peers.   

According to a recent report, 72% of consumers start their buying journey by researching product or servicess online.  If you don’t have a business website, guess what happens?  That customer will shop at your competitor because they do have a website. You are giving shoppers a reason to buy the product or services somewhere else.  

Your business never have to put the “Closed” Sign up again 

I touched on this earlier.  When your business has a good website, customers can shop your product or services at midnight in their pajamas.   

Today’s businesses are not 9 am to 5 pm jobs anymore.  With an online store for consumers to visit, this will increase your company’s sales especially when you gain more customers that are not able to visit your store physically because of the geography.  Internet reaches everybody.  Your online presence also supports marketing campaigns, customer service, client relationship building, brand recognition, and almost every other element of the revenue stream. 

You can also combine your online website with email marketing that will help you to reach more customers and generate more business.  

 You’ll Show Up in Google, Bing and major search engines Search Results 

Studies are showing that an estimated 81% of customers make their shopping decisions based on online research and reports, especially customer reviews.
