Technology businesses know they need a website. If you're in real estate (even an individual agent) YOU NEED A WEBSITE. ... A website gives you a higher number of potential customers to create a relationship with. If internet users don't find you on the web, they'll seek out your competitors who have websites.
It's more common for businesses to have websites than it is not to. As a result of this, consumers are generally turned off by companies that don't have a web presence. This is one of the biggest reasons why small businesses need websites. A website not only puts the business out there and makes itself known.
Not having a website makes consumers trust you less. In fact, in 2018, 75 percent of people admit to making judgments on a company’s credibility based on website design. People are more likely to do business with a company they trust, and a website is the first place they go to check for credentials, reviews, and awards.
Look—your website is your number one marketing asset. Saying you don’t have the budget for it is like saying you don’t have the budget for an LLC license—you’re going to get in big trouble later if you don’t fork over that initial investment.
