Founded in the 1990s, San Jose is the now cultural, economic, and technological hub of Silicon Valley. As Northern California’s fastest-growing economy and tenth-largest city by population, this innovative city’s culture have inspired several global tech companies—like PayPal, eBay, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Samsung and Cisco Systems—to reside here. With all the technology firms in now in the area, it’s become the norm for customers to research products online before they even visit a brick-and-mortar shop. So, if you do not have a website, you could be missing out on prospective clients.
Furthermore, while San Jose might be renowned for its tech community, it also has a broad cultural appeal. Within this city, visitors will find attractions like the San Jose Repertory Theatre, the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts, City Lights Theatre Company, and the Symphony Silicon Valley. But people these days often want to buy tickets online while doing so, they're guaranteed to do a quick Google search to see what shops, restaurants, and other businesses are nearby and which are the best by Google's standards. If you do not have a website, then it is impossible for your company to appear in Google search results. Furthermore, your website helps you rank in the search engines, which allows you to get free publicity for your business.
More importantly, you need a website because your customers will expect you to have one. More small businesses are going online each year, so an online presence has become the standard expectation of any decent company.
