    While not a actual NEED, a web presence is a huge asset. Not having one is almost a handicap, even a in word of mouth type of industry. You meet a potential client casually, and once out of sight, they do a quick LinkedIn or Facebook search and find nothing...its not the best impression in the world. The truth is, in this day and age there are more then a few ways one can build an effective online presence, that's geared to YOUR industry and market, and it doesn't have to be expensive.

    No, its not necessary, every business should have their own website to promote their business on the internet. Today everyone is active on facebook. Instead of creating website, buisness owner should create a business page on facebook to explore their business with proper product information.

    Yes, every business need a website. Main reasons for that is the credibility of your company, the 24/7 information that you can provide, it is a great chance to highlight the USPs of your business, you can have a custom made, unique website, but your facebook profile will be just one from many. Also the opportunity for online advertisements are much cheaper and more effective then traditional advertisements, and you can only use Google AdWords, if you have a website to advertise. And why else social media is not enough? Because you don't own your profile. Technically, you don't own any of the content or data that you have on social media. If you have your own website, you own the data and the content.

    Every business should have a website. The first thing a potential client will do is look for online presence and you want your information available to them. Saves you time and money.

    I'm thinking there are businesses out there that don't need a website, but it's rare. Even your local dentist should have a website to give address info and credentials. It's really not to sell but rather to give information in this case. Just a couple of pages.

    I'll add that a lot of small restaurants don't have websites. They loose money because of it.

    Wow, a long lasting string of posts! Anyway, I agree many businesses benefit from an Internet presence. However, many businesses have no use for a web site or other presence, including my primary business. As a consultant to a pretty closed network of clients I operate almost exclusively on referrals. Generally I don't want random clients from the internet.

    it really depends on your goals and what kind of perception you want for your customers. For some businesses even if you r not going global u still need to create yr own website for better customer perception, cuz website make yr business look more professional. But it's all up to you actually.

    I look for a decent website and at least one social media presence (FB, Twitter, IG) as proof that a business is even remotely legitimate before I consider doing business with them. Additionally, I still won't do business if they have a website or a social media presence, but don't have a decent logo (if one at all).

    A website is also the opportunity to tell your story and share information with your more prudent and "research-driven" customers. Take that opportunity. Pay someone to make you something great! Don't have the budget, do a Wix.com or SquareSpace.com site for super cheap. But do it.
