If you’re a business owner on the fence about creating a website, YES you need one. A professionally designed, lead catching, sales & marketing, branded website.
Consumer behavior has been changed to adapt to the new digital age. From the ‘Yellow Pages’ to the digital transformation. More consumers realized they could find what they needed online faster and more effectively than a phone book or newspaper. From using the printed directory. By 2011, 70 percent of all Americans rarely or never used printed phone directories. Also in 2011, more than 59 percent of consumers were already going online to find local businesses.
In 2019, the number of consumers that go online to find a local business has jumped to 97 percent. If you want them to choose your company, you need to be found online, that’s why you need a website.

MY BUSINESS IS TOO SMALL, AND I DON’T HAVE THE BUDGET FOR A WEBSITE
This is the most common argument heard from small business owners. Your website is your number one marketing resource. If you say you don’t have the budget for it, it’s like saying you don’t have the budget for Business Permit. You’re going to miss it if you don’t go over that initial investment.
Get a website! it doesn’t have to be expensive and fancy with bells and whistles, but your domain needs to exist, and it needs to be found on search engines, like Google, Yahoo, Bing…
OUR CUSTOMERS AREN’T BIG COMPUTER USERS
This is not true. What business owner is forgetting is that “computer users” aren’t just people using desktop computers. It also includes potential customers browsing websites, social media, and apps on smartphones. Not only do 89 percent of US adults use the internet, but 77 percent of them own a smartphone, and in 2016, mobile web traffic outpaced desktop web traffic for the first time.
Smartphone user is computer user! Don’t ever doubted.
