Like many small/medium scale Entrepreneurs, you may believe your business cannot benefit from having a website or that a website is not within your budget.
Or maybe you think because you don’t use a computer, neither do your potential customers. These are misconceptions.

1. YOU’RE OPEN 24/7.
A Website will allow your business or organization to be open 24/7 (24 hours a day, seven days a week). Many people surf the Web in the evening when most businesses are closed. But if you have a Website they can find you, therefore, you are just as good as open.
2. UNLIMITED ACCESS TO CUSTOMERS.
According to the Small Business Administration, 50% of Internet sales are from new customers. Having a website significantly improves your customer reach no matter what services or products you offer.
3. WEBSITES ARE NOT JUST LOCAL, THEY ARE GLOBAL.
Most small businesses are only able to market to their city and surrounding communities. With a website, you can take your goods and services across Nigeria and around the world, if you so choose.
