Re: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

Re: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

I really get what you are saying here. These examples don't need websites. As a marketer looking for prospects these types of business I don't even consider a business. Add just one employee to...

Re: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

To get back to OP's question...

I'm not a great fan of most small business websites. They basically suck because web developers are graphic designers, not marketers. They produce pretty sites,...

Re: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

Is he business interested in growing? Some are, some are not.

Re: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

I can only give my own experience with my retail business, and the experience of my clients.

It all helps. A website is another online presence that you control. Most of the other sites (Yelp,...

RE: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

Local Business Review Sites like Yelp, Google Places, etc Influence New Customers but I still think every business should have it's own website. Because these sites don't give listing owner full...

Re: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

I have a local business. I have a website. I don't need it. Word of mouth keeps me so busy that I have a waiting list. A website may be necessary to gain Marcia's business, but apparently she's...

Re: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

Therein lies the trap of generalizing from your own behavior to everyone else's.

If I have someone recommended by a neighbor and that person is not even listed online anywhere, I will *not* call...

Re: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

If you search on something like "what percent of businesses have a website" you'll find it's a majority DO NOT have a website. A website is not essential.

Think about it. You want a service or a...

Re: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

Yelp, Google places, Social media pick one pick them all.... they are all pieces to a whole. For me.. a website is the center of that whole. All of those pieces in a perfect world are synergistic...

RE: Local Businesses Don't Need Website If They Are On Yelp, Google Places, etc. Agree or Disagree?

Re: WSO Section Clearing Out Quickly

Your post is non-sequitur, red herring and a strawman. First, 35 MPG is established by a 3rd party and is an average. Like you said, it's up to people to understand what "average" means. If you get...
