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:
- Show a couple of nice photos of your business, and maybe you and your staff or some happy customers.
- Tell your story – who you are and what you do and why you’re awesome!
- Tell people what you sell and maybe, how much it will cost.
- 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.
