Many websites on the Internet are lacking pages and details that customers are looking to find.

There are plenty of tools and platforms out there to help you build your business’ website, but I consistently find myself recommending WordPress to my clients. While its true that there are several other platforms that are easy to configure, it’s hard to find a platform that’s flexible and easy enough to use now while also being easily expandable as your website grows.

Without having a website, you’ll lose customers to your competitors, customers will get frustrated when they can’t find your address or phone number online, and people won’t be able to easily find out more about the amazing products and services that you offer from the comfort of their own couches or desk chairs. Not having a website for your business is pretty similar to driving on the highway and throwing money out of your window (metaphorically, of course).
To help showcase that every business needs a website, we’ve rounded up five major reasons for having a website for your business.read more
