If you are starting a service business like landscaping, carpentry, or carpet cleaning, here are some of the benefits and reasons uou need a website.
Why you need a website for your landscaping business
Most consumers, no matter what product or service they’re looking for, begin their search online.
Now, your business can — and should — use local listings and social networks like Facebook to connect with future customers. But to really do it right, you’ll need a website as well. It doesn’t have to be a big deal, either. A simple, one-page website with the right things is really all you need.
If you’re not online, you’re invisible to your customers.
When someone is looking for a service like landscaping, they turn to the internet for a solution. For example, a local couple might go to their desktop computer in the evening to look for a landscaper who can handle a large backyard redesign. Another person might remember they need the lawn mowed while standing in line at the coffee shop. On the spot, they’ll pull out their mobile phone to search for someone to do it. Your chances of showing up when they search improves if you have a complete online presence — including a website.
