I set my free security plug-in to alert me whenever someone tried to hack into my website. I would get the occasional notice so it wasn’t annoying, until one night there was over 30 alerts. My phone dinged all night long. The free plug-in I installed would lock out a user after 20 failed attempts. That means there were over 600 attempts at logging on to my website.
In this day and age of technology, if you don’t have a website you are missing several opportunities for cultivating prospective customers. According to a 2012 survey by Yelp, over 85% of consumers use the internet to look for local businesses. If you do not have a strong presence online, you are potentially missing 85% of business leads.
