Why Do You Still Need A Website in 2020?
Many new entrepreneurs and startups are still asking this question. In the following post, I will mention four reasons why you still need a website even in 2020.
Increasing visibility is one major factor that makes having a website important. Even if people have heard about you and your company, they may want to carry out research online first, before entertaining the idea of leaving the comfort of their own home.
Websites usually provide a map and directions to company's shops or offices, for visitors to less likely have trouble finding your location.
Another important reason why having a website to represent your business is to give you credibility. By building a website, you are giving your business the opportunity to tell consumers why they should trust you and the testimonials and facts to back up those opportunities. Believe it or not, most people will search the internet for a product or service before the purchase to check the credibility first. When you provide good service or product, positive word-of- mouth about your business is likely to spread. Which in turn, delivers more repeat and new business.
A website will not only give you credibility but it will also help to give the impression that your company is bigger and more successful than it may actually be. One of the great things about the internet is that the size of your company does not really matter. There is no reason that you can't get your site to rank in Google ahead of a large multinational competitor and funnel off some of their traffic. This is a big part of the reason that a website is even more important for a small business than a big one, it tends to level the playing field.
