PEOPLE ARE SEARCHING FOR YOU ONLINE
If you’re a small business owner or you’re just starting out, like many, you may think there’s no benefit in having a website when you can do everything on social media. Or maybe you think you can’t afford a professional website so you get a freebie and do it yourself instead.
Benefits of having a website
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.
During this “new normal,” a great website can not only have a huge impact on your relationship with customers, but it’s also one of the most effective ways to draw people in and build trust. This can help boost your profits and build a solid customer base.
