It doesn't matter if you're running an Internet-based consulting service or a bricks and mortar retail shop. Having a website is to businesses now what the phone book used to be -- it's how you're found.
According to a 2013 survey of more than 3,800 small businesses, conducted by Google and research company Ipsos, 55% of small businesses do not have a website.
While there are many tools for the do-it-yourselfer when it comes to developing your own website it's still a good idea to hire a website expert.
Such an expert can help you work through all the details that will ensure your site effectively accomplishes what you want it to.
It's a good idea to have a website strategy and a plan to execute that strategy as well as a way to capture and make improvements to your site based on feedback once the site is live.
If you're in the Midland or Odessa, Texas-area you might consider Basin Hosting for your website development needs.
