Recent research published by 1&1 reveals that 46% of the UK’s smallest businesses have no website in place. Of those surveyed, 41% agreed that a website could increase their sales but are put off by the time and cost involved.

Significantly, those small businesses that do have a website recognise that it is an important way of generating new business.

As the owner of a small business you have to be responsible for a large number of issues to keep things moving along. Sales, marketing, accounts, personnel and admin to name just a few. Many small businesses that we have spoken to find it difficult to know just who to go to for advice on setting up a website.

It can at first seem quite complicated with decisions needed on domain names, email addresses, web servers and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). But to those with experience these are actually quite simple matters that form part of the overall tasks needed in setting up a website. We recommend that all businesses have a website but the size and complexity of each website must reflect the business itself and its budget. Even a simple 2 or 3 page website can attract new customers and we have proof that this works with one of our clients.

If you are a small business owner who needs advice on setting up a website please get in touch. You may be surprised at how little it can cost.
