Whether you’re a start up or been in business for years, having a business website is an absolute necessity for any sized business. The internet has gradually transformed the retail landscape into making it critical for a business to have an online presence – even if you don’t plan to sell online. If providing your customers with your critical business information is not enough reason, here are 10 more reasons why you should have a website:

  1. Your competitors already have one.

  2. Customers usually start their buying process with research and recommendations from their friends and social network. Studies show that once a consumer has an idea of what they need, they will start researching it online.


  3. Your business gains instant credibility

  4. 56% of people won’t trust a business without a website. A website will instantly boost your credibility, make a strong first impression, and showcase your expertise so you stand out from your competition.


  5. Reach customers around the world

  6. If you are selling products you will be able to reach customers around the world. You could potentially tap a market you had no idea that would be interested in your product.


  7. It is promoting your business 24/7

  8. A website is like having a employee 24/7 to answer customers questions.


  9. Change your message instantly

  10. Have you ever printed a brochure or price list, only to have it rendered out of date within a couple months? With a website, you can quickly and easily offer the latest news, information, price changes, even coupons and specials to your customers. They’ll immediately have an impact, as opposed to print media, which can become outdated quickly.


  11. You’ll show up in Google search results.

  12. 85% of consumers perform online research before making a purchase, that means they go to Google and type in one or more keywords. If you don’t have a website for your business, the chances of showing up on the search engine results page are zero. If you have a website, you can optimize it for search engines, thereby increasing your chances of appearing at the top of Google’s results and getting more visibility with potential customers.


  13. Less phone calls

  14. If you display your information directly on your website, customers can quickly search and find the answers they are looking for, in turn you will get less phone calls which will save you time and money.
