In this hi-tech era, you cannot NOT have a website. A business (traditional or not) with a strong online presense in the long run will become more profitable.

In Singapore, we have 4.7 million internet users based on statistics in 2016. With just a total population of 5.7 million users, this means a total penetration of 82.5%.

3) 24/7 information always
You may be a business owner and a workaholic but no matter how efficient you may be, you can never be contactable 24/7. Your website however can deliver information to your partners and potential customers anytime any day. If you can ensure that your website carries informative content, your partners and potential customers will be able to have most of their enquiries answered even before speaking to you.

Not being online does not eliminate competition, in fact it makes your business have lesser potential market value than it should have.
