Why Every Small Business Should Have a WWW
If your company have a website? Yes!
Many small companies are still not using the world wide web to run business. In fact, 46 percent of U.S. small companies still do not have a website for their business, according to a poll by research firm Clutch. In Canada the revealing is even more dismal. The Canadian Internet Registration Authority's (CIRA's) 2014 Factbook discovered that only 41 percent of Canadian tiny businesses have a website at all. And a worldwide survey commissioned by GoDaddy from Redshift Research of"very" small businesses in Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Mexico, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States found that 59% didn't have a website.
Why Have a Website for Small Business?
Strony WWW The first reason why small businesses need a website, even when your business has five employees or not, is because that's where so a lot of your potential clients are for a lot of their time.
For instance, a study by comScore Canada discovered that Canadians spend an average of 36.3 hours browsing in 1 month's time, whereas Americans spend 35.2 hours online every month. (This analysis also found that Canadians spend more hours online every month than anyone else.)
Meanwhile, a Nielsen Company audience report for the first quarter of 2016 found that about 81 percent of adults in the United States have smartphones that are used about one hour and 39 minutes daily on average to absorb media. In both the U.S. and Canada, 88.5% of individuals are net users. All of which implies there are a whole lot of eyeballs which may be visiting and interacting with your small business's website - if you had one. If you run one of those Tiny businesses that doesn't have a website and that fact alone does not convince you to develop an Internet presence for your business, here are six more reasons:
People use the net like they had to use the phone book.
I used to inform small business owners which it didn't matter if they had a website if most of their company was local. But now virtually everyone uses the internet to get information - even local information. Prospective customers are utilizing their Smartphones and tablets to choose where to go and what to buy. So your business has to come up in local beware or search; people who are looking will find other local businesses instead of yours.
A company website gives your business legitimacy.
Folks expect companies to have their own websites, as they had to expect businesses to have a genuine physical company address.
Not having a business website raises questions in customers' eyes. Are you currently a technological luddite? Just still have not gotten around to it? Or such a shoestring startup which you can't actually manage to do this? All things you don't want people thinking about your business.
