Why You Need a Website

In this day and age it is inexcusable for a business (no matter how small, quirky or obscure) not to have a website. Even a basic site from a free templates is ok. Why? Well let me give you one example.

I have been eating out more as of late and usually make an effort to visit new restaurants. Naturally I turn to Google to help me narrow my search. Now, the DC metro area has no shortage of wonderful restaurants but finding one is not always easy. Take for example a recent search of Chinese takeout in my area. Three results came up but only one has a website. The website, while poorly designed, had contact information, hours of operation and most importantly a menu on which I ususlly base my decision. The other two restaurants has no wesite and the reviewrs offered by Goodle and Yelp were inconsistant and contradictory. With no way of knowing what was on their menu, I decided on a different restaurant. Sure, the website-less restaurants are often a great choice but why would a business not use every tool available and give customers more reasons to chose their business.

Any business, organization, or professional should have a website, because between the pool of talented designers, free templates, and software, there is just no excuse for not having a website.

    You’re right, it is pretty much inexcusable. You’d be putting yourself at a huge disadvantage to not have a website. It’s the quickest and easiest way for people to get information about you or your company. It’s like having a business without a logo or without a business card, but probably even worse.

    Yes! It is very important to have a website to show your work to companies. Most Graphic Designers myself do rely on community websites like Behance. But I sure agree to just go and make a website for yourself to separate yourself from other artist. And also you will have a better chances of getting a job just because you have a website while everyone else is using pdf’s and community websites to show their work.
