Should your small business have a website? Yes!Many tiny businesses are still not using the internet to conduct business. In fact, 46 percent of U.S. small companies still do not have a website for their company, according to a survey by research company Clutch. In Canada the revealing is even more dismal. The Canadian Internet Registration Authority's (CIRA's) 2014 Factbook found that only 41 percent of Canadian small businesses have a website in any way. And also a global survey commissioned by GoDaddy from Redshift Research of"very" small businesses in Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Mexico, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States found that 59% did not have a website.Why Have a Website for Small Business?The first reason why small businesses need a website, even when your company has five employees or not, is because that's where so a lot of your potential customers are for a lot of their time.As an example, a study by comScore Canada discovered that Canadians spend an average of 36.3 hours surfing in one month's time, while Americans spend 35.2 hours online every month. (This study also found that Canadians spend more time online each month than anyone else.)Meanwhile, a Nielsen Company viewers report for the first quarter of 2016 discovered that about 81 percent of adults in the USA have smartphones that are used about an hour and 39 minutes per day on average to consume media. In the U.S. and Canada, 88.5percent of people are net users.

If you operate one of these small businesses that doesn't have a website and that fact alone doesn't persuade you to develop an online presence for your business, here are just two more reasons:Individuals use the internet like they used to use the telephone book.I used to tell small business owners which it did not matter if they had a website if nearly all of their company was local. But now almost everyone uses the internet to find information - even neighborhood information. Potential customers are using their Smartphones and tablets to choose where to go and what to buy. So your business has to come up in local search or beware; individuals who are looking will find other regional businesses rather than yours.A company website gives your small business validity.People expect companies to have their own websites, as they used to expect businesses to have a real physical business address.Not having a business website raises questions in clients' eyes. Are you a technological luddite? Just still have not gotten around to it? Or such a shoestring startup that you can't actually afford to do that? All things you don't want people thinking about your business.
