Get Your Business on the Web

I can't think of any business alive today that couldn't benefit from at least a minor presence on the web. Now that I've made that statement, I'm sure someone will point out one. My point is, however, that having a web presence today is about as cheap as anything going and if you ever get one client or sale from the web you are way ahead.

How many times have you come across someone who would be ideal as one of your customers. They have about a minute to talk to you and you don't happen to have a brochure in your back pocket. How easy it would be to simply tell them to "gotomywebsite dot com". HarrysAuto dot com. BonnieMakesCandy dot com. ShamrockCoaching dot com. That's a lot easier to remember than an hour lecture from you and when someone goes to your website for information, they can spend as much time as they want or as is necessary to satisfy their questions. You don't need an elaborate website unless you are getting into ecommerce - selling goods and services on the web.

For many small businesses a simple informational website that allows people to see what you do, see who you are, see what you provide and see how to contact you is enough. Don't worry initially about how great a site it is or how many people are going to visit it. Just get up and running. A domain name like MyWebSite.com costs about $20 to get and web hosting can be as low as $4.95 per month - or in some cases free.

So whether you are a plumber, a shop owner, a chimney sweep or a business coach?get yourself a website and get it up and running now!
