Why you need a website?
Question: I have a very small business with just 3 people in it me and my 2 employees most likely we can't sell our services online. Do I need a website?
Abdur Rahman Pappu : I face this types of questions now and then. In the year of 2000 I was asked this question for the first time. I was working with Toyota that time; I was pretty much sure about the signs that made me believe future business revenues would be generated from online transactions or from offline / physical transactions that were resulted from online marketing efforts.
Now the question "do you really need a website" to sell products that are not available to sell online and most importantly with small business? My answer is still same as it was in 2000. As simple as it is you have business then you need a website.
Now a days
Although now days there are very small portion of products available that can't be sold online, so erase the thought from your head that your product can't be sold online.
Don't take me wrong I am not saying that you need a website just to sell; if your product and services are sellable online you must use a website. But at the same time a website helps to make your presence on the Internet so that clients, customers, employees, investors, suppliers can find about you & your business online.
It's also said, it's never enough that you just have a website. You must own a professional looking website if you want to be taken seriously. Almost 60 percent of the consumers today use Internet prior to any purchasing decision and remember your website is the first step to make an impression.
Everyone is looking for something on Internet every second, either you be part of it or left behind.
