Considering how much of our lives are spent online, it’s almost unbelievable that over 50% of small business in Australia still do not have a website. On the other hand, it’s also not surprising.

Go online to search for a company to build your website and you’re hit with a whole heap of language that’s hard to understand like, “our websites are built using HTML coding” or “CMS for unlimited self-updating”.

Then there’s the cost. Some web design companies are charging over $2,000 to build a website that includes a whole heap of bells and whistles that small businesses don’t even really need.

Your website deosn’t need to be complicated. You’re running a small business, you’re not a web developer. And, you’ not running a Fortune 500 company, or some kind of online platform.

If you’re like most small business, you probably only need your website to do these things:

  1. Show a couple of nice photos of your business, and maybe you and your staff or some happy customers.
  2. Tell your story – who you are and what you do and why you’re awesome!
  3. Tell people what you sell and maybe, how much it will cost.
  4. Tell people where you are, when you’re open and how they can contact you.

That’s it. No bells and whistles. A professional looking but simple site that does these 4 things will help you to be found online and can dramatically increase traffic through your business.
