The Top 5 Reasons Why You Need A Website For Your Business


It’s been reported that around 50% of small
businesses don’t have a website. We think this is quite a shocking statistic. YourSimpleSite
has helped loads of small business owners to launch their website so we know the huge
positive impact it can have. If you’re a small business owner and you don’t have
a website, here’s the top 5 reasons why we think you need one. Even if you don’t believe
us that you need a website, Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, agrees. He said ‘if
your business is not on the internet, then your business will be out of business. Here
we go. Number 1. It’s like having a top sales person working for you. Imagine having
a sales person that delivers a perfect pitch to prospect customers every time. They say
the right things to take your prospects on a journey to becoming your customer. That’s
what a website is. You can create the perfect sales pitch that you know works. Then you
unleash it onto the world to showcase your business and get leads, enquiries and new
customers flooding into your business. And best of all…a website costs a lot less than
hiring a top sales person. Number 2. Your business is open 24 hours a day, 365 days
a year. Websites don’t sleep. They don’t get sick. They don’t take holidays. They’re
always there, working for you all day, every day. You never again need to have a closed
sign on your business. People can access your business and become your customer anytime
of night or day. Let them check out your business when they want to, when it’s convenient
for them. Number 3. People expect you to have a website. Here’s 2 quotes which we think
say it all. ‘…data from research suggests 62% of customers will stop considering a small
business if they can’t find information about it online’. And ‘48% of consumers
surveyed said they would stop considering buying from a business if it did not have
a website’. Basically, research has shown that a lot of people won’t even consider
using your business if you don’t have a website. Think about your own activity online.
If you do a Google search and see results like these, which would interest you most?
Would you pick up the phone and call the ones without a website? Or, would you click through
to the ones with websites and see if they fit your needs? Another question to ask yourself
here is do your competitors have a website? It doesn’t matter what the answer is because
if it’s ‘Yes’, then you need a website too. You don’t want to be left behind by
your competitors. If the answer is ‘No’, even better. This is your chance to the competitive
edge and attract more people to your business. Number 4. Show up on Google search results.
Google is such a big part of modern life. There’s even a verb for it in the Oxford
English Dictionary. Googling (verb). The act of researching things on Google.com. Here’s
a couple of facts about Google. Google has 90.46% of the search engine market share worldwide.
Google receives over 63,000 searches per second on any given day. So, having a website for
your business showing up on Google is really important. The great news is, there are loads
of things you can do to achieve this without spending any money like signing up to Google
MyBusiness and Google Search Console. Number 5. Websites are very quick, easy and inexpensive.
We hear loads of reasons why business owners don’t have a website. Things like; they’re
expensive, I can’t afford one, they take too much time and effort and I don’t know
anything about them. None of these are reasons. They’re excuses and none of them are valid.
First, websites are very quick and easy. You can make your own website in just a few minutes
using a website builder like YourSimpleSite. You’re guided through the whole process
of creating your website and launching it live to the internet. Also, they’re not
expensive. You can definitely afford one. In fact you shouldn’t see a website as a
cost. They’re not there to take money from you, they’re there to make you money and
can have a huge impact on your business, your profits and your lifestyle. This now poses
the question; can you afford to NOT have a website? Hopefully, you can see that having
a website is really important. But, there’s something else! This is all good and well,
but, the important thing is you must do it right! It’s not just about sticking a website
on the internet and all of a sudden, you’ll get loads of new customers. You need to give
