Rural area Website?

Do any of you work in a rural area and have a website? I’m trying to decide if a website is a good investment in a very rural area with no competition.

You won’t know what you’re missing until you have it. If there is little to no competition then one of Anyas smaller site packages whould be sufficient.

Do a facebook page first and put 2-3 services you provide and your business name. Im in a town of 70,000 and my facebook page is at the top of everything. Just load one pic a week then if you feel like you want more than go with web page also and like Tim said go with Anya.

It doesn’t have to be just “specific” to that area, you’re very in between several small/medium markets and one large market. Spent a good many of my teenage years in Hartsville SC.

Thanks, I do a good bit in hartsville, I live about 15 minutes from there.

How far from Columbia? Sumter? Florence? You could be in a very good location to service all these areas. Columbia should be about the same time the other way.

Columbia is a bit far. About 45 minutes. I do work in Sumter, Florence, Darlington and Camden/Lugoff.

I know that area, at least I used to…I think you should stake your claim in that area with a quality website SEO’d for those areas…Lots of old money in those areas.

That’s what I’ve been thinking about. I just wanted to make sure that the website would be worth the money for my area. Thanks for the honest input.

When i needed someone to fix my washing machine yesterday, I went online. When I need to find the number to the pizza place…online. I can’t think of anything that I use the yellow book for. And while referrals are great when I need something I don’t ask a million friends first. In five minutes or less I feel like I can pretty much vet someone on my own call them and be done.

This year is the first year that I had someone do my website, seo…etc. While I have been too busy, tired, or sometimes a little lazy, to update all the generic pictures that were put on there the website has ruled this year and more than doubled what I’ve done in previous years. It’s not that all my business was generated from inquiries…its that it got me into new neighborhoods and new streets. My signage on my van, yard signs, and quality of work did the rest. One of those customers knew a property manager and mentioned me in a converstation. That contact alone has generated an extra 15k this year. As well, in today’s society, your not a real company without a real website. This is also the first year that I had to hire full time help. I attribute all of this to the website and bustin my hump 12+ hrs a day trying to make everything perfect. Hope that helps.

It does help. I think it’s a no-brainer at this point. Thanks for all the advice guys.

I think a website is good no matter where you are located. You want people to be able to find you easily, however they might be searching.
