Is your business now still without a website?
When asked does your business have a website, generally here are some of the reasons that I’ve heard from business owners : “The nature of my business does not need it”, ” I’m not so IT savvy”, ” No time lar”, “People say use Facebook better, it’s FREE” or the infamous quote ” Expensive leh to build one, you think cheap ar!”.
Despite those reasons, in reality especially now you don’t need to be tech savvy to own a site. Design & developing a creative cool sites for your business can be cheap, fast and easy, and to make it even simpler for you – not having a website is making you lose time and money to your competitors.
Furthermore from a survey it shows that 81.5% of people research product or service online before making decision to purchase from you or your competitors. In conclusion that is around 26 million people searching for businesses online.
Yet as I have noted, 46.3% of business owners says “My business doesn’t need one.” as their top reason for not having a website.
Why is it important now?
With the global pandemic, most of the people’s are staying or working from home. So, how would they get to know your business? The answer is to search online (GOOGLE). That’s why GOOGLE is the top search engine in the world. Everyone is using it to look for things or to get questions answered.
That’s why now is the time for your business to have a website no matter what industry you are in. It’s Now or Never!
