Many small businesses and organizations do not have a website.
Think of a website as similar to an expanded advertisement that would run in the local newspaper or as a listing in a phone book. A newspaper advertisement is only there until the customer turns the page but a website is there 24/7/365 and is accessible by computer, tablet & smart phone. No matter how small your business may be, your customers expect you to have a website where they can find your phone number, address, hours of operation, etc.
A website should be easy to read on all types of devices
to include smart phones, tablets and desktop & laptop computers.
Review the following questions to help you decide if establishing a website might benefit your company or organization:
- Do you receive a lot of routine phone calls about your business?
- Do you distribute newsletters or flyers?
- Do you wish you had an inexpensive, but valuable, way of advertising your business?
- Do you have a product that can be sold nationwide?
- Do you deal in specialty or unique products?
- Could you benefit from having photos of your products displayed nationwide or locally?
- Do you have brochures or catalogs that you distribute periodically?
- Do you get a lot of the same requests for information about your business or its products?
- Do you want to answer questions or make appointments on-line?
These are just a few questions that may help you decide if your business or organization would benefit from having a web presence. If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may benefit from having a well-developed website.
