I disagree, I think a tradie has the MOST to benefit from an online presence.

Sure your reputation is important, and word-of-mouth is everything. Where do you think they go to rave about the awesome tradie who even cleaned up after himself? Facebook.

People don’t look a tradie up in the Yellow Pages anymore. They’ll google “plumbers in [suburb]”. Better yet, they’ll go to facebook and go “crap my toilet won’t flush, who knows a decent plumber?”.

Newsageny’s are unique, there is really nothing special about them. They’re not unique, they just sell the generic product.
However, where do you think someone will look up their nearest newsagent when they’re new to the area? Where do you think someone will look up a nearby newsagent when they’re VISITING an area?

The world is online, your business NEEDS to be there. No excuses. Being online isn’t ALL about having a website though.
