Does My Business Really Need a Website?
Q: My business is very small, and our products really can't be sold online. Do I really need a website?
A: Yes, without a doubt, if you have a business, you should have a website. Period.
First of all, there's very little that can't be sold over the internet. More than 20 million shoppers are online right now, purchasing everything; from cars, to houses, to books, to energy, to you name it. If there's something you need or want that you're willing to pay for, someone has figured out how to sell it online.
You might say, "My business is just a small operation," but when it comes to benefiting from a website, size DOES NOT matter. I don't care if you're a one-man show or a 10,000-employee corporate giant; if you don't have a website, you're losing business to other companies that do.
One of the best things about the internet is that it has leveled the playing for companies of all sizes, but you still only get one shot at making a good first impression. With a well-designed site, your little operation can project the image and professionalism of a much larger company. The inverse is also true. I've seen many big company websites that were so badly designed and hard to navigate that they completely lacked professionalism and credibility. Good for you, too bad for them.
