Small Businesses, No Website

Almost half of U.S. small businesses get by without a website, according to a new survey.

The survey, from B2B research firm Clutch, fund that businesses who choose to go without a website usually site expense and irrelevancy to one’s business as the main reasons.

Clutch interviewed businesses that typically had 1-10 employees and less than $1 million in annual revenue.

Tech specialists would argue that the cost of setting up and maintaining a simple website is negligible, and does not require the hiring of outside experts.

Indeed, the ability to maintain a 1-2 page “brochure-ware” site offering simple information is often included in a small businessperson’s ordinary Internet service.

Experts say that even these minimal sites put a business on the map, attract new customers and give businesses a stronger edge against competitors.
