I attended a Facebook live seminar by the Small Business Administration today. Forty percent of businesses do not have a website. I was floored. If I can't google you - I am not doing business with you. I want your name, references, prices, products... I want it all. If your business doesn't have a website - you are lost to the new generation and some of the older generations. I'm 47 - you better have a website.
I'll say it again - you need a website! You may think it's too hard to create one or too expensive to hire someone - BUT you must have a website. I created mine in 15 minutes using Wix and it is FREE!! Yes - you are currently on my website and I do not pay a dime for it. It's not fancy but its legit and now you know I exist. I have social media accounts with followers and you can tell I am real.
Times are changing every few minutes. Get with the program. It's easy, its simple, it's a must.
If you want to do it yourself, for free, go to wix.com. If you want an expert I can recommend ten of them. If you want the easiest and cheapest route - call me. Oh, unless you are ready to retire, then no website needed.
"..Not doing it because of cost concerns or because you can "just continue to call on customers and then finally retire" isn't a smart strategy." Antara Dutta
