Great Reasons You Should Start Your Website For Your Business Right Away!
What is the first thing you do when you are looking for a service or product? You look it up online, right? And don't you choose a business when it has a site, full of helpful information, clear and precise, so you can safely hire their services or buy what they are selling, rather than the one with no site at all? That is called credibility, and to us, it is the first important reason you should go online, baby!
Instagram is fun (and sometimes not that serious, let's be real), and people browse and forget you too soon. A website also will give people the notion and feeling that you are a legit business, and impress them as they find you on Google.
"As of 2021, 71% of small businesses have websites and 81% of customers research things online before they buy them. In other words, if your competitors are online and you’re not, those competitors get the first interactions with customers." (from themeisle.com)
