I would like to append to Nightrider's comments. 
I would say you do not NEED a website.
It does not cost a lot to have a website or maintain it.  There are some inexpensive softwares available that allow anyone with decent computer knowledge to create and maintain their own website. All you need is a host.  Mine costs me about $17.50 a month for hosting and I think it was about $150 for 9yrs for my domain name.  I haven't really edited my website in over 2 yrs.
While I do get people that call me from my website my main reason for having it is to be able to refer people to it to answer there questions instead of me taking 30 minutes to explain what I've already written.
I don't make a lot from my site but then I'm not busy promoting it.  Since 2000 I've made $5238 attributed to website source alone, doesn't include people that were referred and then saw my website.  My costs involved are about $1000 for creating it ($600 for an original programmer, $400 for do it myself software), 17.50/mth for 6yrs=$1470 for hosting, About $210 for domain registry, totalling $2680.  So my website has brought it 2:1, not including repeat cleanings.

Do you NEED one. No.
Is it good to have one. Yes.
