2014 should be a great year for small business. The economic recovery is expected to continue and online business search and commerce is expected to grow, but is your business website really going to help your company stay up-to-date and ready to go in 2014?

In a recent consumer survey sponsored by GE Capital Retail Bank, 81 percent of respondents said that they researched businesses online before making any major purchase. This means that a majority of your potential customers have looked your business up online before buying anything. Take a look at your website – does it present an image of your business that you want potential customers to see?  If it is starting to look a bit tired and out of date, do consider giving your site a facelift by contacting us and we will also make sure you have a mobile version of your site available.

If you don’t have a web site for your business do make it a new year’s resolution to get one.  Note that our web sites are mobile friendly, are  e-commerce ready, easy to up date and all pages are SEO optimised.

Happy new year from Jamie Davies, John Bolton and Mark Holah at GetNoticedLocally.co.uk
