What is the purpose of having a website for your small business?
The usual functions that websites serve are: Improving trust and image of your business and Inviting more netizens to be your customers.
As a matter of fact, some people will usually buy from a company that they learn about on their own. And where would they probably learn about your company if not on the television or print? On the internet. So if they stumbled upon your website and realized how good it is, then they would probably have trust in your company.
Unlike a salesperson who sleeps, your website is always available to persuade and convince, and allow transactions or submissions of forms. It is awake 24/7!!!
In creating a website, you must invest in a good website developer. Planning your website and understanding your goals and desires helps you to best prepare your project and put it to life with your preferred website developer.
