Well the short answer to this question is YES. It does not matter these days what business you are in, a website is an essential part of your business and not having one could be costing your business money.
Let’s face it the days of people searching through a big yellow book to find a plumber has gone the way of the Dodo. Most people in this country now use Google to find everything they need, whether it’s on their computer, tablet or mobile phone. So not having access to these customers mean your business is missing out.
Having a website is now as important as having a phone number; in fact some people believe that it is more important as it is available to your customers 24 hours a day. Your business website is your company’s main advert, telling your customers what you do, where you are and when you are open.
The secret is not to just have a website but to have a great website that is ranked highly by Google. Having a website that no one visits is just as bad as not having a website at all. Getting potential customers to your website is all about how search engines like Google see your site, so making sure your site is fully optimised is very important. There is no point having a website for a plumber based in Bath if it does not appear in the first page of results when some searches for a plumber in Bath.
So the real question you should be asking is not does my business need a website? But does my business need a website that will bring me new customers and generate me sales.
