Why Do Businesses Need A Website?

Occasionally, I’ll encounter a business owner who insists that they don’t need a website at all for their business.

While the person who owns the business knows the most about their particular situation, it’s a bit naive to think that a website is not needed.

Here are 8 reasons every business should have a modern, optimized website:

 

  1. People search online not only for web based businesses, but also for local businesses and services- in fact, 80% of all web searches are related to finding local businesses
  2. Your website is your virtual business card
  3. Your website is working for you even when you’re sleeping- it’s a portal for 24 hour access to the information your customers want
  4. Professionalism: business owners with a good website earn credibility with their customers automatically
  5. Competition: your competitors have website and are already enjoying the benefits
  6. Efficiency: when someone searches and finds your website, many of the questions your customers have about your business are answered on your website
  7. Customer Interaction: it’s simple to poll your website visitors to find out what they like the most and the least, which allows you to do more profitable business
  8. Testimonials: satisfied customers will leave positive feedback about your business, encouraging others to seek you out as well.

Being visible online is crucial- but how do people find you?  That’s where search engine optimized websites come in.
