Do you need an online presence? What does not having a website say about you?
There are plenty of businesses, old and new that survive admirably without a website or other another online presence. You might be one of those companies but at some point, you may consider making yourself an online home, a small piece of the internet to call your own. Let’s be honest, why wouldn’t you?
Now, you may think – I am a wheelie bin cleaner, in St Helens, how is having a website going to help me? You’d be surprised. Somebody may have a particularly smelly wheelie bin, in St Helens, and think to themselves ‘ I need my bin cleaning’. They google ‘wheelie bin cleaner St Helens’ and don’t find your website. They find a competitors website and contact them, next day they’ve got a clean wheelie bin and you’ve lost an opportunity.
Now, we’re the first to admit, in certain situations a website won’t get you work. However, 999 times out of 1000 a person will ‘google’ a company before dealing with them, and if that company has got a shoddy online presence or none at all, that’s now the customer’s lasting first impression of your company.
Although this blog post can be perceived as a sales pitch, it really isn’t, it’s advice. We’ve spoken to hundreds of people, locally, nationally even European and occasionally somebody will say, ‘oh, don’t need a website in my game’ and they may be right… however, they definitely need an online presence, to give their potential customers a good, lasting first impression.
