First impressions matter! For 37% of users, their first impression of your small business will be online. Once users land on your website, you have 8 seconds to make an impression. Most users will leave within 8 seconds if they don’t like your site or can’t find what they’re looking for.
What’s more, people now view websites as an extension of your business: If your website is sloppy and unattractive, users think that’s what their experience with your business will be like. In other words, an outdated, messy, disorganized website translates to an outdated, messy, disorganized business model in many users’ eyes. For many of your potential customers, that’s a dealbreaker.
If you have a bad website it is [almost] better to have no website. While no website equals missed opportunities, a bad website can actually be worse since it literally makes your business look bad.
