Google is the go-to resource for most internet searches. Some of your customers might search for your small business by typing in the name of the business or store or perhaps type in the goods or services they are seeking. Either way, to get found in Google, you need a website. And for those customers who already know your company name, the way they will find out about your business is by going to your website.
