Sure FaceBook is very popular and easy to navigate, but the fact of the matter is that 49% of small businesses do not have a website to call their own. When I say website, I mean something that was designed professionally and is located on your own domain (i.e. www.yourbusiness.com). This is very frustrating for most of us, especially when we are trying to do a search for your business and nothing comes up in the search engines. A lot of the younger generation, ages 16-34 are using web site search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing to learn about a business or find the cheapest prices on a product before conducting business with your company. This same group of people are searching for local companies that have products online only companies (Amazon.com or NewEgg.com) have to get their products faster.
What if your company does not sell anything and only provides a service?
This is a common question and the simple answer is “media”. Media is pictures and videos and can easily be embedded into your website. A great way of showing potential clients how well your business performs is to take pictures and video (especially before and after shots) of services you performed for other clients.
Let’s say you own an automobile body shop and you know that you are the best in town. Starting a website with information about your shop location(s), operating hours, contact information and before and after pictures of work you completed is a great way to attract new customers! This same general principle can be applied to other areas of business. Pet groomers, Hair & Nail Salons, Pool Cleaners, Lawn & Landscaping Companies, Driveway & Concrete Decorators, Interior Decorators etc..
When you have a website, your company stands out, period.
Think about it, this is the 20th century, almost everyone in America has a computer or at least access to a computer. I just spend my vocation in the panhandle of Florida near Destin. My family and I stayed in an upscale condominium that was literally right on the beach. I was looking for somewhere to take my family that would be fun and exciting. I hadn’t unpacked my laptop yet, but I knew we had Wi-Fi in the building. Just for kicks I looked at the welcome binder located in the condo for a pamphlet on what to do. Well when I opened it up, there was a yellow AT&T phone book cd-rom cover that was a digitized copy of the latest phone book and yellow pages! So they don’t print phone books and yellow pages anymore!?
Anyway, I thought this was incredible, they are not going to waste all that paper on phonebooks people don’t use! The point of this is to tell you that soon phonebooks will be out of style, and most of the business conducted will come from search engines. This will be people typing into Google, or any other search engine, “Tampa Pet Groomer” or “New Port Richey Web Design” or “Tampa Bay Injury Lawyer” and if you don’t have a website then you will not be in the listings on the search engine. If don’t have a website and search engine optimization company, like CQuinnDesign.com that will propel your company website to the top of the listings, then you might as well not exist.
