6 Excuses Small Businesses Make For Not Having a Website [INFOGRAPHIC]

Table of Contents

46% of all small businesses in America still don’t have a website.

That’s insane.

After spending a few years building websites (and writing about building them) I’ve begun to see a pattern. A pattern of excuses.

I’ve narrowed it down to six. Six terrible excuses small businesses make for still not having a website in this day and age.

I’m so passionate about this, that I actually made an original infographic to make my point.

If you still don’t have a website for your business, which excuse are you using?

46% of small businesses still don’t have a website (nearly half)

24% might build one in 2016 or later

22% have zero intentions of building one

1) I don’t need one

2) My industry isn’t online

3) I don’t have the money

  • There are dozens of Do-It-Yourself website builders out there, including Weebly, Wix, and Squarespace.
  • You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a custom website design. There are more affordable web designers available than ever before.
  • You can hire an overseas freelancer via sites like Upwork, Elance, and Freelancer.

4) I have enough customers

  • You never know about the missed opportunities your customers found elsewhere.
  • 50% of all mobile searches are conducted with the hopes of finding local results.
  • Your customers are looking for you. 61% of those searches result in a purchase.

5) I use social media instead

6) I don’t have enough time

  • Do you have time for:
    • A cup of coffee?
    • Reading an email?
    • Calling your mother?
  • That’s how long it takes to manage a website. (well, except maybe that last one)
  • Many companies also offer managed website services. You’ll never have to touch it.
