Is it Time to Take Your Small Business Online? Your customers are already talking about you online – a website helps you to control the conversation! As a business owner, you likely know that just because something is cheap and easy to do doesn’t mean that it’s a necessity for your company! But the importance of taking your small business online goes far deeper. Many small businesses opt out of website creation because they fail to see how the time and resources needed to maintain a web presence can fit into their already-packed “to do” lists and cash-strapped budgets. Unfortunately, this is shortsighted. Even if you haven’t invested in the creation of a small business website, you still have a web presence – but it’s your customers that are controlling the conversation. Today, consumer interactions don’t occur in a bubble. If a customer is frustrated, he doesn’t just tell his close friends – he tells the entire world through review websites and social media networks. If your company isn’t there to either refute claims or make amends, this feedback – whether positive or negative – is the only thing future customers will find when they look for your business using search engines like Google or Bing. Obviously, simply having a website won’t prevent your business from receiving negative reviews or critical feedback online. But by being a part of the conversation, you demonstrate that your business is committed to its customers, preventing your company from losing clients that might otherwise go to your competitors on the basis of your minimal web presence.
