Just updated the background image of my about.me page to one from last November of the marsh area of the Rouge River just before it enters Lake Ontario.

Even with so many FREE choices, 55% of Small Businesses still don't have a website

I read* recently that 55% of small businesses don't even have a website — which was an improvement from 58% the year before.

Obviously, being one that focuses on getting small business online, I'm a BIG proponent of having a website. Even if it's a simple online business card. Every business needs something to legitimize themselves with todays net based consumers. Everyone likes to know that they can reach out to the companies they patronize whenever they want, for any reason. A website enables them to do that. It gives your customers a comfort level, a reason to buy your product over a competitors.

So if you need a website please contact me today for a chat with absolutely no obligation. Many that don't have a website said they just don't have time to take product photos and put together content. Don't let that stop you as I can help with that as well.

There are free alternatives as well. Here are just a few.
about.me • strikingly.com • moonfruit.com • wix.com • squarespace.com • weebly.com • sidengo.com • dudamobile.com • yola.com • webs.com • jigsy.com
• ucoz.com • imcreator.com • sitey.com • doomby.com • snappages.com

Then there is always Facebook Pages, Google Sites, Blogger, Wordpress, and if you want mostly visual content try Flickr or Instagram. Again, you can wade through the setup yourself, or I can do it for you.

There are so many good choices, all you need to do is pick one. Easy right? Well, whichever way you decide to go, please make sure you end up with a web presence. You won't regret it.

Peace out
