Maybe not, a web presence can be enough for many businesses. It could be a website, but it could also be a Facebook business page, a Google business page, an eBay shop or something else. You might even have more than one web presence. I have a website, a Facebook Page, a Google business Page, a Google+ page and a LinkedIn business page.

Your web presence might be an eBay shop or other similar e-commerce service. ome types of web presence may not suit your business. A LinkedIn business page would not be suitable for say a shop, a plumber, an electrician or similar small business. For many small businesses, a web presence will be enough. All you might need is a web presence to advertise your services, display your contact details, show your opening times and maybe show your location.
