The SurePayroll Small Business Scorecard(R): Nearly 1 in 3 Small Businesses Don't Have Websites

Only a Quarter Doing E-Commerce
GLENVIEW, IL--(Marketwired - May 25, 2016) - As many large retailers struggle with competition from e-commerce, in the small business sector even having a website is not yet a foregone conclusion, according to the May 2016 SurePayroll Small Business Scorecard®.Nearly 1 in 3 (28%) of small business owners reported not having a company website for their business. For those that do have a website:
52% hired a firm (creative agency/web development company) to build the site for them. 20% hired a freelance designer/web developer. 17% built the site themselves with the help of a service such as Squarespace, Wix, Duda, Weebly, etc. 11% had a web background and built the website completely on their own. Only 26% reported having an e-commerce component to their site, where they are selling products and services directly to customers. A significant number (42%) said the web really isn't that important to their business, while roughly a quarter of small business owners feel they could use help with website design, functionality and content. "It's gotten to the point where it's easy to build yourself a website, but to build one that really functions well for your business and represents your brand is still a challenge. That's why you're seeing the majority still paying professionals to do it for them," said SurePayroll General Manager Andy Roe. "Setting up an e-commerce site, with all of the technical items that have to be handled correctly, that can be a costly, complicated endeavor for a small business owner. The old fashioned approach to sales -- building relationships, making calls, pounding the pavement -- is still very much in play." An infographic with the full results of the Scorecard survey is available on the SurePayroll blog.
