Do you have an online presence in this Digital Age? A consumer who searches for a type of local business call or go to that business 88% of the time (Nectafy). Each year 95% of Americans shop online (Big Commerce). With statistics like these, every small business needs that online presence to help lure consumers to buy their products over the other options. Small Businesses use reasons like cost (26%), irrelevance to industry (27%), and they prefer or only use social media to a website (21%) to not have their own website. With statistics like those above, every industry is relevant on the internet. Social Media accounts do not allow you to show up in a Google search like a website does, which is one of the largest used methods when searching for a product. Websites are much more inexpensive than business owners think, especially when done in-house.
