Google, the Patron Saint of the Curious, is the go-to resource for most internet searches. Some of your customers might search for your small business by typing in the name of the business or store or perhaps type in the goods or services they are seeking. Either way, to get found in Google, you need a website. And for those customers who already know you, the way they will find out about your business is by going to your website.
Do you have modified hours due to COVID-19? Where are you located? What is your phone number? Do you sell… whatever it is they are looking to buy? Every day, more and more people seek answers via the web instead of by phone. Why not make it easy for them?
The biggest reason for having a website is that consumers have changed and now they expect a website. Often, a business without a website seems “less than” when compared to competitors that have websites.
Many small businesses have avoided having a website for a variety of reasons, not all of them good. Landau Consulting, a web development company in New Jersey, has published a list of 7 myths about small business websites in the following infographic.
Some small business owners think that they are not a tech company and therefore cannot produce a high-quality, engaging, and appealing website. Some think that a website is too costly and is just another expense or that their business does not need a website. Some fear being spammed once they put their website and contact information out there.
These are valid concerns but with today’s technologies, these concerns have been addressed and mostly resolved. A good NJ small business web design company can help you understand the details of creating a compelling and effective website, even if your business is located outside of NJ. They will guide you through the many decisions and steps, much like a good contractor will guide you through a home renovation or construction project.
