Three years ago 52% of small businesses didn’t have a web site. A new survey shows that now 46% of small businesses don’t have a web site.
That’s progress. But it’s still 46%. That means nearly half of small businesses aren’t going to be found by potential customers who search for products and services they need and want.
Ask those 46% why they don’t have a web site and you’re likely to get at least one of these three reasons.
One – They think a web site isn’t relevant to their type of business. Actually consumers search for everything online. Just ask Google – they handle an estimated 5.5 billion searches every day.
Two – They think they can’t afford it. They really can’t afford not to have a web site.
Three – They’re using social media and they think that’s enough. The thing is you just can’t do on social media everything you need to do to explain your business to people who want to know if you can meet their needs.
We’re Looking For That 46% Who Don’t Have A Web Site.
Call us hopelessly optimistic, tell us we’re tilting at windmills, even suggest we’re on a mission impossible. That’s fine with us.
We’re committed to making web sites affordable for small business owners. Web sites that articulate details of their business and their mission. Web sites that proudly proclaim to the entire world the unique value – and added value – of the products and services they provide. Web sites that help prospective customers find them.
Let’s talk about the whole perception that web sites are expensive. It depends on who you ask. Like many other creative service providers web developers are all over the scale in terms of price. Some of them won’t talk with you for less than the price of a luxury dream vacation.
