A website is actually inexpensive

Websites offer a better return on investment than any other form of advertising. With your website, you are advertising your products or services 24 hrs a day 7 days a week. You can change specials and add new information, without having to reprint material, getting it out to your users instantly. Websites can be interactive and really draw in your users, making them excited and wanting more. With print material people glance and then toss it away leaving no lasting impression. You also have no way to measure what works with print marketing compared to website marketing which can be measured with analytics. Plus, it’s a legitimate business expense and a tax write off. A cost of a website compares nothing to the amount of business you will gain.

To summarize… A website should really be the first priority of any business, and it’s easier and cheaper than ever to get one.
