With the flood of social media into everyone’s lives it’s easy to dismiss a small business website as yesterday’s news. I mean, come on, everyone’s on social media now right? Who visits a small business website?
The answer is the customers most likely to be ready to do business to you. A search for your business in Google means a customer is seeking you out. They’ve heard of you through word of mouth or a marketing campaign and they are ready to become your customer.
If they can’t find you on the web what impression does that make?
Your small business website doesn’t have to be fancy. It just needs to have the information that customers are looking for to help them have a conversation with you.
If they can’t contact you they can’t do business with you and if they can’t find your small business website they can’t contact you.
