Well, let's see, if you live in the North Pole and your closest neighbor is hundreds of miles away, then your business will probably survive without a website. But if you live in the modern world and you interact actively with the local commercial market, your business definitely need a website.
Owning a website is just as important as having a phone or business card. It makes you more professional, relevant, and increases the strength of your distribution and advertising.
Don't ignore the web and sometimes you may not be interested in the web but your clients are—and that is a big difference. Every month, the number of people who are reliant on web-based transactions grows. Millions of people today prefer the convenience offered by the web. No need for long queues, traveling across town or walking around the mall. With a simple click, they can make their purchase when they need to. Many people also rely more on the web to find businesses than they do traditional options such as phone books or the yellow pages.
The message is simple. Even if you do not want to advertise your services online, you need a website to stay relevant, or your business might very easily disappear. Staying offline will limit the number of people who have access to your services. And while you are unavailable, your local competition will be snapping up all the traffic that should have been coming your way. By the time you make the transition to the web, you would have lost most of the trade war.
So to answer the question listed above—yes, your business definitely, most certainly needs a website. Even if your website is not monetized to sell your services actively, you need a website that will offer core information such as your address, phone number, and your business catalog. The whole world is currently on the web.
Why wouldn’t you want to be there?
Unless you are comfortable handling the same reclining group of clients every month, at some point, it is vital that you expand your services to the web. Advertising your company on the web will increase the exposure that it gets and give you ready access to a much larger market. Your website is the face of your company online and building it now rather than later is very important to keep your business going and because a website is so affordable; it will cost your business more if you didn’t have one.
