Importance of Websites
According to a survey by Weebly, 56% of the consumers surveyed said they don’t trust a business without a website. Customers look to connect with companies digitally now more than ever, so establishing an online presence through a website, blog or social channels provides an excellent way for brands to do so. With a digital presence, brands can reach a broader audience than through traditional forms of communication, and they can continue to curate customer loyalty by remaining in constant contact with their brand advocates.
So, what are the options for businesses who want a website to reach their customers?
1) paying someone a bunch of money,
2) learning to do it oneself, or
3) buying a website template
Yet, a recent article from the Social Media Examiner reveals that 44% of small businesses don’t even have a website! Moreover, only 68% of those businesses update their websites no more frequently than once per month. So what’s the problem?
They’re usually limited to the following options:
Problem No 1
Getting a website is too difficult & time-consuming.
There’s no solution as simple as a social network to get a website online. In comparison, getting a “good enough” website is too difficult, time-consuming & expensive — so, most go without.
The numbers speak for themselves:
88% of U.S. SMEs would choose a website over social media to represent them
Over 50% of U.S. & Global SMEs do not have a website
45% of those without a site say creating a site is too expensive.
