This post is brought to you by GoDaddy. People always say that small businesses are a dying breed. They never become hugely successful and they often face hard times; leading to a dwindling number of small businesses. What leads to so many of these small businesses failing? They seem to have everything people want: good customer service, personalized attention, and quality products. Some will claim it’s due to corporate companies butting in on the competition, but could it be something else? Could they be suffering from an illness? An illness known as NoWebSitis.
NoWebSitis is described as a small business that does not have a website, and it is killing the businesses we love. I remember when our old theater suffered from NoWebSitis. It was a great theater; always had the best movies, delicious popcorn, and a wonderful staff of workers. Their only problem? For the first year or so in business, they had no website. If anyone wanted to check to see which movies that theater had, they had to go to Fandango, who for some reason never seemed to get all of the information correct. This often upset customers, to the point where they’d no longer trust the information and instead chose to go to another theater. Our little theater eventually made themselves a website, but by then the NoWebSitis had taken its toll.
So I warn you: don’t let your local small businesses fall ill with NoWebSitis. Have them see Dr. Godaddy for their cure; the Website Builder 7.0. This handy prescription will take care of any business’s website woes. I
