For many local Phoenix, Tucson, Casa Grande and Maricopa businesses who use traditional approaches for conducting business and creating new leads, having a website may seem unnecessary. However, there are many advantages of having a website that are often overlooked. We’ve listed a few below:

1. Your Website Is Available 24/7

A website can be accessed by potential clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even outside of your own business hours. If you plan to sell things via a website, this means that your website can make money for you, even when your storefront isn’t open.
2. Anyone With An Internet Connection Can Access Your Website

With traditional methods, you’re often limited by distance. But with a website, you can reach the entire world without any added expense. Think, for example, how much more a typical boutique store could make if they created an eCommerce website. Instead of only selling goods to the neighborhood, they can branch out to serve the entire city, the entire state, the entire country, or more!
3. Internet Realty Is Cheaper than Real Realty

A domain name generally costs about $10 per year. Hosting for your business website costs about $10 per month. Costs for operating a website amounts to about $130 per year. Add anywhere between $100 & $500 for maintenance and search engine optimization updates quarterly. So for a small / medium local business you can expect to range from $1,500 to $3,500 per year. Clearly, this is much cheaper than the yearly rent paid for a physical location or your cost for a small ad in the yellow pages. And given that a website can multiply your profits, it is an investment well spent.
4. You’ll Stay Competitive With Others in Your Industry

Now that websites are becoming more and more common, its often a surprise when businesses do not have a website. In fact, many business which lack websites are not considered professional and lose credibility. So if your competitors are launching their websites, be sure to keep up with industry trends and launch one for your company as well. With 82% of people starting their searches online for local business, products and services like yours, will they find your business there?
5. Get The Word Out

A website is great for syndicating content. If you are interested in delivering some new or important information to a wide audience, or a small, targeted group...... a website will get this done most efficiently, and at a very reasonable cost.

Clearly, there are many reasons to create a website for your business. And given the relatively small investment that it’ll take to launch a site, there are few reasons not to move forward.
