Do you reeeeeeeeally need a website?
Look, in 2019, you need a website. You needed one the day you started your business, but better late than never.
At Stixx, small business success is our middle name. We WANT you to succeed. So, in this article, I’ll cover3 key reasons:
Reason #1: 30 Percent of consumers won’t consider a business without a website
Your website is your number one marketing asset because we live in a digital age. Americans spend on average 23.6 hours online per week and are on their mobile devices for up to five hours per day. By now, consumers expect companies to have an online presence (including a website) and will consider a company that DOESN’T have one as less professional.
Reason #2: People are searching for you online
One of the benefits of having a website for small businesses is to be where your consumers are. There’s a reason so many companies invest in a website with search engine optimization (SEO): 97 percent of people go online to find a local business, and 93 percent of online experiences begin with a search engine. Believe it or not, there are 3.5 billion searches on Google per day, and at this very moment, there is someone in your area online and searching for your exact service. Guess who’s getting their business? Not you.
Reason #2: I don’t even use a computer. I can’t maintain a web site.
Using the computer is like playing the piano. You can play “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” or a Sonata by Chopin. Either way, you’re getting a tune out. To maintain a web site you should have a computer, and you — or someone in your company — should be able to send and receive email. Your web developer can help you with maintenance, changes and updates, which is generally simple and affordable
