You would have thought the simple answer to that was yes, but it would seem as though some business owners still need convincing.
According to the Office of National Statistics, 21% of small firms still don’t have websites, which is astonishing.
They are mainly plumbers, florists, small retailers, decorators etc., who rely on word of mouth. That’s all well and good, but what happens when business slows (as it does from time to time), how will they find new clients to make ends meet?
If you’re one of the 21% it may also be worth noting that research conducted by O2 showed that a quarter of the 2000 people they polled said they wouldn’t use a small business if they didn’t have a website. Although you may not see the need for a web presence it would appear as though your potential customers do.
