But, you still need to be convinced. Look at it this way... there are several reasons for a website.
The main reason to have a website is to have a 24/7, 365 days a year presence and a point of contact for your potential clients and customers. In this day and age without a website, people looking for your products or services will search the internet and find you in addition to your competitors who have a website.
Secondary reasons to have a website are:
- To provide information about your place, much like a brochure, with the advantage of cheaper and quicker updates than printing, and with more comprehensive information.
- To visually (with images and/or testimonials) showcase your business and reach wider audiences at no increased cost to you.
- To offer an invitation and provide an easy way to contact you for more information.
- To present a professional image which helps you look bigger than you actually are and give you the credibility that you deserve.
Bottom line is creative and reasonably priced advertising to get the word out about your place through the media. Facebook pages work nicely too because your fans leave great comments.
