Myth: My Business is local, so I don’t really need a website
Busted! This one is quite common…. These days pretty much everyone turns to the internet for answers. For example a potential client may search to find the menu or specials of a local restaurant, cafe or business before heading down to visit you. Having a web presence allows you to display this information and easily share these types of things through social media as well. Potential clients may also want to know exactly where you are located, having a website your clients will be able to pin point exactly where you are.
Myth: I don’t need Social Media, it’s not important for my business
Busted! If you want your business website to rank well in search engines especially Google, social media should be a big part of your future business plans. Google has made changes to how they rank a website and social media plays a big part in these rankings.
