Ah, yesterday. When all the advertisement we needed was word of mouth or in newsprint. To so many of us, it seemed simple then. It was, in a way. The pace seemed slower and eveything had a bit of a restrictive schedule. Many stores were open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and were closed for lunch. Most businesses were closed on Sundays, so if you didn't get around to whatever it was you needed to do on any other day of the week, you were out of luck. People read morning and evening editions of newspapers to catch up on local and national news and neighborhood happenings.
Fast forward to present day. Most people under the age of 35 won't even remember how important printed media was to some of us. In stark contrast to yesteryear, today's world is always open. Brick and mortar storefronts may still have some limited hours, but many are open around the clock in an effort to coax in extra business. And the reason for limited hours has a lot to do with overhead.
The age of the Internet has changed how business is conducted, and it has changed it as rapidly as anything else I can remember. The Internet is always open. The Internet is a very crowded place that you can visit by yourself and not worry about bumping into anyone. The Internet is where all of your customers, and potential customers, may be reached.
Years ago, a Website was a luxury. Some were known to cost tens of thousands of dollars for design and copywriting services. A Website today is affordable, easy to maintain, and an absolute necessity. And the smaller your business, the more you might need a Website.
