Why Have A Web Site...
There are many reasons that small businesses decide they need or want a web site. If you are a retail or direct order business, this may be the best way to expand your customer base with a minimum investment of time and money. For consulting companies, you will extend your access to an international base, if desired. Maybe you just want to have a brochure type site - "this is who we are and what we do". Maybe your competition is already on the Web and you need to catch up or maybe you want to beat them to the Web. Each type of business will have its own reasons to have an Internet presence.

A good Web design firm will help you determine why you need to be on the Internet. It will assist you in developing a plan to achieve your goals. Designing and building a good web site is a complex and involved undertaking and should be done in partnership with a company that understands small business needs.
