Why Your Small Business Needs a Website

Why your small business needs a website

In an ever-evolving digital world, a good website has become a must-have for businesses to attract new customers. Studies show that 97 percent of consumers search for products and services online. Despite this fact, only 51 percent of small businesses have a website.

If the internet has become America’s #1 way to shop for services and products, why do nearly half of the country’s small businesses lack a website?

According to Clutch, a research company that identifies leading software and professional services, the two biggest reasons small business’ go without a website include:

  1. A belief that a website is not relevant to their work. 
  2. A belief that websites are too expensive.

I certainly understand those hesitations.

Why invest in something you may not need for your business’ success or may not be able to afford?

After helping dozens of  clients develop their web presence over the years, I’ve found that many small businesses are taken advantage of when it comes to their digital and marketing needs. It makes sense that nearly 50 percent of the nation’s small businesses don’t have a website when they don’t have the skillset to build it themselves and most firms price sites well above what a small business can afford.

Although large firms may offer incredible sites, they many times include elements that are unneeded for a particular small business’ needs and hijack the price point.

But what if there was a way to create a website that increased your small business’ profitability rather than stole money from your pocket?

That’s the question we were asking when OneTeam Marketing Solutions was birthed.
