Regardless of how small your business is or what you provide for a product or service, it is likely that someone will try to find you on the web to see what you do, how you do it, how others like you and what you charge. Additionally, the web is how people find new providers for goods and services that they need. So the short answer to the question “Do I need a website for my business?” is YES!
Don’t worry though, this doesn’t have to be a daunting and expensive task. We discussed in a previous post the need for a good email address to reflect what your business does. If you used a service such as 1 & 1 to register your domain name, you can likely setup a free website as well on that service. You can choose from hundreds of template looks and styles and decide how complex or simple you want your site to be. This is a quick and inexpensive way to get started on the web.
If your business begins to depend more on the web to drive new leads or provide information and/or services to your clients, you will want to consult a professional web design and development firm to make sure that you are getting the most from your web presence.
