Potential customers are looking for you in the same way you look for things – on the phone, laptop or desktop.
If you do not have an online presence, please consider it very seriously, potential customers will want to check you out, and make an informed decision before ever even reaching out to you. A website does take a lot of time, effort and resources, but is a great place to show your work, and provide information your potential customers are looking for. An alternative to your own website is a Facebook fan page, they are easy to set up, and will serve the same purpose, but with limitations.
