Lets face it, most entrepreneurs are “do-it-yourselfers” in some fashion. At some point, you looked at a product or service and said “I can do that” (hopefully you said better – “I can do that better”).
Many small business owners continue that mentality in every facet of the business by wearing the hat of manager, bookkeeper, HR, PR, maintenance and trash-taker-outer. You see something that needs to be done in your business and you say “I can do that” (or “I better do that” when it comes to the trash).
But when it comes to the business website, many don’t think they can do it and also may not see the value in paying a website developer $1,000 – $5,000 to build a website. The national statistics are that 46% of small businesses do not have a website. Can you imagine if 46% of businesses did not have a phone number?
Technology has made dramatic leaps forward in making it possible and even free or at least very cheap to build a website. This free software is WordPress and not only is it FREE, but it is easy to update and grow with your business.
I can tell you my fellow small business owner, this is revolutionary and you can DIY. Quit ignoring the internet and the impact it can have on your small business and get a website now. You can do it! (you better do it!)
