Everyone’s online these days. When people search for a business, they don’t do it with the Yellow Pages anymore… unless they’re using the online version. Even then, they’re still looking for business websites, which is why it’s essential for all small businesses to have one.

They can range from the simple ‘online brochure’ which provides contact details and a basic outline of the offering, to more complex, retail-based sites that also act as a distribution channel.
Business owners will get the most out of their websites if they’re used in conjunction with social media. The idea is to use social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to drive traffic to the business website, as well as to communicate with their customers.
