In 2017, people no longer just cold walk into businesses to see what they are about. They first google your business to see what you are all about. If you don’t have a website this will discourage consumers from walking into your doors. Even worse if the website you have looks ugly people will associate that to your business. In the rare case of them walking into your doors after doing their research they will already have a bad impression of your business. So it is very important to not just have a website but an outstanding website. So when potential customers google you, they will see you as a credible and valuable business.
The importance of having a website is crucial but even more so is that your website needs to be mobile friendly as well. This means your website needs to break down to the mobile phone. Now, in 2017 more than 50% of consumers are using their smart phones to surf the web. If they google your website on their phone and see that it is not mobile friendly they will be turned off and go to a competitors website who is mobile friendly. This is especially important if you own a local business. Google is able to track the location of the consumers and the surrounding businesses. For example if you own a burger spot and a consumer google searches for a burger spot with a mobile friendly website you will appear above the websites who are not mobile friendly.
