"Do I really need a website?"
This is an important question to ask yourself if you are starting out with a small business or non-profit. And I would venture to say the answer is almost always a resounding "Yes!"
Having a web presence gives your business or organization legitimacy.
Nowadays, if you can't be found on the web, people get suspicious of your legitimacy. Just having a simple website that displays even the barest information about you goes a long way. It shows that you are professional and established, and that you care about conveying accurate information about your business.
Your website is your online business card.
When you meet someone in a professional arena, it's customary to give and receive business cards. If someone simply scribbled their phone number on the back of a napkin, you might think they were a bit less than professional. However, if they presented you with even a simple business card, with clear contact information, you would know that they cared about their business and the impression they make.
Your website allows you to (at least partially) control what information is listed about your business.
Having complete, clear and up-to-date information posted online is essential for any business or non-profit. Trust me, if you have been established for any length of time, you will probably find information about your business on the web that may or may not be correct. It's important to get ahead of the curve! Creating even a simple website can help ensure that the information publicized is as correct as possible.
