The Internet, since its creation, and especially since Google went public, has transformed the Internet into the place to be if you have a business. It’s no-longer a choice to have a website, it’s a must, if you want to compete with your main competitors.
Here are just a few reasons you need a website:
- Convenient Everyday Access
While most brick and mortar businesses are only open on weekdays for certain periods of time, your website is available 24/7 365 days out of the year, if you want it to be. No need to turn valuable customers away because it’s a holiday or you are on vacation. With a website you can still collect leads and sales.
- Inexpensive Catalog and Brochure
Your website can display the products and services that your business has to offer and the information people may want to know. You can also change your content whenever you want, without having to pay a printer a hefty fee to reprint everything.
- Global Marketing Medium
The power of the internet holds infinite possibilities. Whatever may be contained in your website can reach out to the entire globe. This increases the chances for sales and earnings dramatically.
- Cutting-edge Customer Service
Customer service is an important aspect that should be taken into account for a business to flourish. A business website can establish communication and healthy relationships between the marketer and the clientele. Customers can easily voice out their concerns and the marketer can in turn respond to these, thus creating rapport.
- Effective Marketing Tool
A business website allows the salesperson or marketer to sell the products and services to millions of people. Using such eliminates the costs of having to pay for rent and other maintenance fees that result from having to set up an office.
- Low-cost Promotion
Creating a business website is typically free of charge. One only needs to regularly maintain it for efficiency. Individuals are able to view the products and services the company offers without generating cost on the side of the marketer.
- Lead Generation All businesses exist to serve the demands for such products and services. Having a business website allows the marketer to come in contact with possible clientele that might be interested in what the business offers.
- Recruitment Tool Business owners wishing to hire employees can utilize the business website as a vantage point. Vacancies and the like can be posted and the website itself can serve as the location of interviews.
Basically, for the last 5 years if you have not had a website then you have lost money and probably lots of it. That is pretty much a fact. So if you don’t have a website and you own a business please consider getting one, but if you do make sure you have a professional build it.
