Having a website is having a strong foundation for your business. This is the first place people go when they are looking at a business, it’s like having an online receptionist. Yes, social media gets viewed more, but this is your foundation.
Social media is more for quick bits of information rather than all your services, and who you are.
Not having a website is like not having a sign on your store in a business downtown area.
