Here is a simple fact: We look for information on the internet all the time.
We search for ways to make our lives easier, learn to do things, looking for directions, read the news, watch videos, and much more.
We used to only search on the computer. With smartphones, and tablets, now we search for things everywhere, all the time.
We search during our commute, when waiting for people, while relaxing, while working out.
By the end of 2012, the vastly emerging market in Asia has over 1 billion internet users. Europe is at 500 million, and North America at about 270 million.
That is a lot of people, and the numbers are not slowing down.
If you are a small business owner, and your business is NOT on the internet, you are missing out on a lot of potential business.
If you already have a website, you have to ask the following questions: Is your website easy for your users to use? Does it clearly state what your business is about? Does it deliver what you want to deliver to your customer?
The truth is, your website is a reflection of you and your business. A well designed, easy-to-use site can be the difference between a potential customer contacting you, or going to your competitors.
