I am redoing my website and came up with a few questions.

How Important is your website to you?

How Much Business do you get from it?

Do you get more from having your website name on your promotional materials or from Search Engines?

How important is it (To You) to rank high in the Search engines?
(Do YOU get more business by ranking higher?)

Do you keep an eye on your search terms and how your site places?

Carl,

In my business I used my website more as a information source rather then to draw business. Sure i did get some business off of search results but i wanted my site to post information about my business such as the services we provided and our prices. Obviously we couldn't list every price, but we did provide base prices with a disclaimer at the bottom explaining that other charges may incur. If you are pushing remote support heavily i would suggest good SEO.

I made sure my business cards pointed to my site for the customer to get information about our services and to save them (and us) a ton of phone calls asking if we do this or if we do that. We still got some of those but once we optimized the site for delivering information those types of calls went down. Most of the calls we got started off something like, "On your site, it says you do (insert service here) for (insert price here), can i bring my machine in today?"

It was nice that our site most of the time sold our services for us rather then having a tech spend to much time on the phone trying to sell a service.

I think it depends where your at.

I serviced a city in the past where the age range was below 40 years old.

Most of my clients in that city where form Google searches adwords and people seeing my website.

Now I service an area where the average age is 40+ and all that work is from word of mouth some newspaper adds and almost none from the website but I keep it up because it does give me a few clients worth more then the site itself.
