An online presence is essential for any company that wants customers outside of its immediate geographical area. There are many web developers who offer inexpensive websites or pretty designs, but at the cost of what benefits? Your company's online presence is just as important, if not moreso, as that which you project through your printed materials or even in person. Once your (potential) customers reach your website, what else can they do there besides just read about your company? Your company's website has the potential to be a virtual receptionist: visitors should be able to sign up for events, buy your products or services, network with other customers who may share (or complement!) their interests and abilities, etc. Impressive graphic design does not equal impressive functionality, and you should know the difference between the two if you want to turn your company's website into an integral part of your services.
