“Around 71% of small businesses have a website. This is up from 2018, where only 50% of small businesses had a website. If you’re one of the 28% that still don’t have a web presence, this is a sign to build one. Having a website is not only important for your business’ name and brand recognition, but it can also help in lead generation and conversion.” Fit Small Business

Small businesses rely on websites to engage their existing customers while attracting new ones. Websites can also provide confirmation that a business is legitimate by publicly listing its mission, address, and contact information.

“Without a website, your business is shrouded in mystery… and not in a good way. You look either hopelessly out of date, or like you’ve got something to hide.” ~ Score.org
